AND THEN CAME THE DERBY---MAN UNITED VS MAN CITY PREVIEW!




Manchester United will play Barcelona on May 27 in the Champions League final but before then, we'll hope to be English Champions. It's not so much of a big ask as we are in pole position as far as the title is concerned but City are the fist of four clubs that could still ruin our end of season party. Last season, the Bitters did the double over us and even though we've already beaten them away from home this season, United should be a ware that this is one of those few teams that know how to pick us. City have never failed to beat a below-bar United side so hopefully, the lads will be up for it. This game comes after Liverpool's game at West Ham so we could again be second by the time we kick-off. It will be great if United give Liverpool no more hope as I feel we should have won this title ages ago if it was not for what happened to us in March. United have their game in hand coming up in mid-week so it would be a real blow to the Dippers if we're heading into the Arsenal game 6 points ahead of them. Unfortunately for United, Wes Brown looks to have been ruled out for the rest of the season. Thank goodness that is one area where we have more than enough cover. I expect only a few changes to the team that beat Arsenal at the Emirates so nothing major should change as far as the team is concerned. Tevez looks the freshest player we have so hopefully he'll start. After suffering the double last season, nothing will please United fans more than completing the double over our bitter rivals. Having said that, United players must keep in ind that City will want nothing more than to dent our title challenge. We must be as ruthless as we've been this past month and equally mean in defence.
