City To Edge Manchester Derby

The Manchester derby is one of the highlights of the Premier League season and today's game is crucial for both teams.

Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City have an excellent home record and are still unbeaten in the Premier League this season. Defensively City remain very strong with only three goals conceeded in their last nine league games .

However Manchester City trail their United neighbours by three points at the top of the Premier League and are well aware they cannot afford to lose this game and fall further behind in the title race.

United can only go so many games allowing opponents to take the lead and come out on top. If they fall behind I can’t see them reversing it at the Etihad Stadium .

The Manchester derby is a massive game, both psychologically and from a points view and City will reclaim top spot and possibly the title momentum with a win. It’s going to be a tough game but I fancy a narrow home win and the 13/10 with Paddy Power is more than fair considering City’s brilliant home league record.
