Ahead of the 179th Manchester derby, it’s time to look at five of the most thrilling Manchester City and Manchester United Premier League classics.
On the back of some impressive midweek wins, Manchester City F.C. and Manchester United F.C. hope to continue getting their respective Premier League campaigns back on track with another victory on Saturday’s derby.
Reigning champions City are already 11 points off runaways leaders Liverpool in the standings. However, Tuesday’s 4-1 win at Burnley ended a barren run of one victory in five matches across all competitions.
United, meanwhile, ensured a miserable return for Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford on Wednesday by winning 2-1.
Now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will hope to build on their recent resurgence, with eight points separating them from a Premier League top-four spot.
So, with the stakes this high, we give you the five biggest clashes in Manchester derby history.
