Manchester United vs. Manchester City: Manchester Derby Preview

It’s a proper Manchester Derby again! After a bit of a dip in form in the middle of the season, Manchester United’s risen to fifth in the table and will face second-place Manchester City in what could be instrumental to United’s Champions League chances for this year … especially if City’s ban from next year’s competition holds.

City is appealing the ban, though, and if nothing else, it can feel good about the League Cup win it got over Aston Villa last week. It’s the usual trophy City wins, but it’s better to win a trophy than none at all.
