All eyes on Old Trafford

The eyes of the football world will once again be on Manchester on Monday night as United welcome City for another momentous local derby.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men, 15 points ahead of Roberto Mancini's side with eight games left, can take a potentially decisive step towards securing the title with victory at Old Trafford.

A win for the visitors would give them a glimmer of hope of retaining the league crown they claimed ahead of the Reds in such dramatic circumstances last May.

The game also offers United the chance to avenge the 6-1 drubbing by our neighbours in the corresponding fixture last term.

It’s Ferguson vs Mancini, first vs second, red vs blue. Like us, you’re probably already excited - but why not watch our video to further whet your appetite for the 165th meeting of Manchester's mighty Reds and Blues.
