Welcome to our Manchester United vs. Manchester City preview and prediction for this English Premier League fixture otherwise known as the Manchester Derby. Thirteen months after the last time this fixture was played, and how things have changed. Last season, Manchester City where on top of their game, eventually pushing through to secure the title as Liverpool stumbled. This year they are quickly slipping out of contention, and need to win this or they will risk not qualifying for the Champions League next season. Last Season Manchester United where is disarray and limped into 7th place in the league, missing out on lucre of European football this season. This season, although still not totally convincing, they are getting the results. This has seen them rise up the table and their manager swears they are still title contenders for this year. They need to win this or that dream will disappear very quickly.
