Premier League: Manchester United vs. Manchester City


Defending champions Manchester United and big-spending Manchester City are set to collide at the Old Trafford this afternoon in what will be a much-anticipated derby.

The Citizens will be looking to maintain their perfect record against their biggest rivals, which would also enable them to leapfrog United in the rankings.

In a recent interview, City manager Mark Hughes said that knocking Sir Alex Ferguson’s side off their perch would be the biggest achievement of his career.

The Red Devils on the other hand have won four straight since their loss to Burnley and have posted an amazing goal difference of 11-2 during that stretch.

Game time is 1:30 p.m. BST (8:30 a.m. ET).

UPDATE: Michael Owen’s last-gasp winner broke the hearts of City fans as United clinched a sensational 4-3 victory against the Citizens.
