Video: Five derby winners

Experience is crucial to succeeding in the Manchester derby, which bodes well for United with no fewer than five proven match-winners all vying for contention at the Etihad Stadium.

Sir Alex Ferguson admits he is undecided on "two or three" positions ahead of kick-off on Monday night, although the Reds boss knows he has plenty of know-how to call upon.

Veterans Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs have both struck winning goals against Manchester City during their illustrious careers, while Nani hit a decider as recently as this season during the FA Community Shield.

Of course, who could forget Wayne Rooney’s acrobatic effort against Roberto Mancini’s men last season or Michael Owen’s last-gasp finish at Old Trafford in 2009?

Our free video shows five winning goals from previous derby matches – let’s hope we see another one tonight.
