United's away record 2011/12
Goals for 36
Goals against 13
Sir Alex's men have the best set of away results in the Barclays Premier League this season with 12 wins from 17 games so far. The Reds have drawn three of the other five, leaving just two defeats at Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic.
The champions are also the joint highest scorers on the road with 36 goals - the same tally as Manchester City - and possess the meanest defensive record with just 13 conceded.
While that all bodes well, United will need to get past the team with the best home record in the league. City have recorded 16 wins from 17, scoring 51 goals and conceding just 10.
Our free video shows the Reds in fine form on opposition turf in 2011/12 - let's hope we see another example at the Etihad Stadium.
