Manchester United have a huge game at home to city rivals Manchester City today, but some Red Devils fans say they'd be more than happy to lose the game—if it means that even bitterer rivals Liverpool then miss out on the title.
United's chances of a title defence have long gone after a mediocre season, but Brendan Rodgers' side has been flying high in what looks at present like a three-way race for the crown between City, Liverpool and league leaders Chelsea.
United can influence the title race, however, and the result of tonight's derby will swing the title race one way or the other:
Is it bad as a United fan I want City to win tomorrow? Couldn't bare to see the horrible scousers win the league!! 😁— Graham Kirkby (@GraahaamKirkby) March 24, 2014
We should just calm down and allow city to beat us, abeg, Liverpool must not win that league— Tweety (@Tweety4real) March 25, 2014
If it means the scousers don't win the title then I hope City beat us at Old Trafford. Ideally Chelsea will win it though out the 3 #MUFC— Paul (@MrNagChampa) March 19, 2014
Discussing with Mancs in work if they think they'll beat City for us tonight. Got a few groans & a 'we'd rather lose so you don't win it'.— Kop 305 (@Kop305) March 25, 2014

Whether you agree or not, it's certainly a sign that times have changed at Old Trafford.
