(At the risk of aggravating Utd fans!) If City hypothetically went out and hammered United on Monday and somehow lost the title from there you'd have to feel the second best team won it.


Why? Just because Crystal Palace beat United in the FA cup didnt make them the better team, in any one game anything can happen.

The best team wins the league

Well I said IF they happened to beat Utd comfortably it would have been two hammerings in the one season. Not a one-off game. Anyway I can't see a hammering in any way

I'd rather see United winning the title on the back of beating/Drawing City as a neutral. I'm sure ye don't give a toss as long as they win it any old way.

Of course not, let any rival fan have whatever moral victory they like, wouldnt bother United fans.

My point is that City are excellent at home and if they beat United its not exactly going to be the shock of the century, the OT was also a one off game in the middle of a league season, the result was a little skewed but Im not going to argue that, City won well thats all that matters, if they beat United Monday then they will have beat United twice in the season, that means gaining 6 points. Thats it, 6 points out of a possible 114.

The best team over the course of 38 games wins the league, every year. Liverpool have done the double over United before when United won the league, didn't mean Liverpool were the better team in the league though. I am in no way trying to bring Liverpool into this, just they are the first example to pop into my head!

I'll go for a victory for United. United have been in must win games like this time and time again and they can defiantly get a result.

This is such a massive game I love it, I actually think there is a lot more pressure on utd, if they lost lose an 8pts lead to their city rivals it will be as big as newcastles collapse all those years ago. There will be a lot of nervous players in the first 20 mins.

Apprehensive too say the least about this.

From reports that i've read Evans will be out or playing injured does not fill me with joy going into this game. That gives me a big i was kinda losing hope for the fella but he has shown what kinda player he can be for us hopefuuly he is 100% if he is. I'm going to go for a draw. And hopefully number 20!

And 2 each over the course of the season.
Noone is denying City tore Utd a new one in Old Trafford, they were by far the better the team on the day. However 3 of those 6 wre in injury time.
NO chance City score 3 goals tomorrow let alone 6.

I just can't see Utd losing this. These are the kind of matches they seem to thrive on and get the job done. A draw i reckon!

United played 4-4-2 that day until Evans was sent off. Mancini was tactically superior and went against his Italian style and sent City out in the second half very offensive minded.

On Monday City need to win so Utd will be setting out in a 4-5-1 looking to defend and hit on the counter attack. I would imagine SAF will play Nani, Young, Valencia and Rooney as his front 4.

I would not be surprised to see this kinda line up.
----------DDG----------
Raf---Rio------Evans---Evra
-----Carrick-----Jones----
Valencia--Young----Nani
---------Rooney-------

Obviously smalling at RB is a good shout and Scholes could well start. But that is a good defensive setup with great counterattacking options.
