Preview – Football: Manchester United v Manchester City

Manchester United Manchester City

Tonight is possibly the biggest match of the Premier League season, and not just because it is the Manchester derby.

Manchester City are one game in hand over league leaders Liverpool. Tonight’s game will finally see them draw level in terms of the number of games played. Thus a win tonight will see them move one point clear at the top of the table, meaning if they can win their last three games there is nothing Liverpool can do to stop them. Anything less than a win will still see Liverpool keep the top spot.

The Red Devils however will not only be keen to stop their light blue rivals from getting the top spot, but will also be trying to get the points needed to get one of the European places. However, a shock 4-0 away defeat to Everton in their last game may still be on their minds.

Manchester United v Manchester City is on Sky Main Event and Sky Premier League at 19.00 (kick-off 20.00).
