Manchester City vs Manchester United

The greatest derby yet...

By Archie Barnett

No doubt about it, this year’s Manchester derby will be the best ever, with possibly the Premier League title riding on it. This year, the two teams have played each other 3 times, with Manchester United winning 2 of those clashes. However, no one can and will forget that memorable day in Stretford, at Old Trafford, where Manchester City came out 6-1 victors on United’s home soil. Will we be able to carry out a win of epic proportions again come Monday night? Only time will tell...
We have put a few stats together for our readers, take a look, what score do you predict on Monday night?

Because of Derby day”
