Although we’re sitting pretty fifteen points clear at the summit, any derby game is still highly important amongst the players and fans alike and theres no doubt that our lads will be hungry to win this one. Fergie will get them in the right mindset and prepared properly to go out there and win this one.
A victory here would all but end City’s fast fading hopes of any Premier League glory this season, and this is also the first derby at Old Trafford since the 6-1 over 18 months ago.
