All eyes turn to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon as Manchester City and Manchester United lock horns in a game that is sure to have a big say on the title race this season. City and United look as though they are ready to battle in out for the English Premier League crown once more this campaign and after City’s double over their rivals helped them lift the title back last season – we know just what an important 90 minutes this is.
In truth, neither Roberto Mancini nor Sir Alex Ferguson will be delighted with the way in which their side is performing at the moment. Neither have been able to hit the heights they did at the start of the 2011/12 campaign, but are still sitting as the top two teams in England – which shows what strong squads they have.
Mancini’s men have remained unbeaten in the league and of course he will be delighted with that. However, they have drawn seven matches – which the Italian will see as too many. The Citizens have looked fairly solid at the back and have the best defensive record in the league.
United on the hand, well they can’t stop conceding goals and have now let in 21 in 15 league encounters. More often than not though, they manage to outscore their opposition. In contrast to City, Ferguson’s side have now drawn a game all season either and have recorded twelve victories in the top flight.
Although they have accumulated their points in very different ways, City and United look to be evenly matched going into this one and it makes for a fantastic spectacle. As they are the home side and trail by three points – the Premier League champions have to come out and attack, taking the game to the Red Devils.
When you consider how much attacking talent is sure to be on show as well, it is difficult to see this one not being a thriller. For Man City, the likes of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and David Silva are sure to be at the heart of everything they do going forward.
United’s big attacking threats are of course Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, but Javier Hernandez could have played himself into the starting line-up with his performances recently.
This game will be watched all over the world and these two have always had a fierce rivalry, but you sense it is at an all time high right now. Manchester will be red or blue come the final whistle on Sunday afternoon.
