Last year's Manchester Derby was the deciding matching for the Premiere League title, and this year promises to be no different. Manchester United leads the Premiere League, with City just three points behind. City, however, is the only remaining undefeated club in the Premiere League.
Both teams have plenty to play for, promising an exciting match.
United has to be especially excited for this one, as their October loss to City near the end of last season kept them from another Premiere League Championship. Any loss to City hurts, but losing the championship to them hurts even more.
City, meanwhile, needs a win to put the pressure on United for the championship. They definitely don't want to fall back further.
United will likely be more forward-thinking than they were in last October's brutal 6-1 defeat at the hands of City. In that game, they attempted to come back by attacking with 10 men, resulting in a 3-1 deficit ballooning into a 6-1 defeat.
This year, United will play more conservatively to avoid losing the championship to a goal differential.
