English Premiership: Manchester Derby Preview
Manchester United and neighbour arch rivals, Manchester City, go head to head at Old Trafford this evening as they meet each other in the reverse fixture of their Premier League campaign.
It has been a difficult season so far for the Red Devils and their new manager Davis Moyes with early exits on both domestic cups and ranked seventh in the Premier League table but last week’s Champions League comeback against Olympiakos
and victory over West Ham last Saturday have encouraged United fans to renew their trust on this squad.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men will be looking to repeat the performance showed last October when they beat United 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens have mixed feelings this season as they won the Capital One Cup but were eliminated from both the FA Cup and Champions League and now they are fully focused on the Premier League title race.
