5 reasons why Manchester United will destroy Manchester City at the Etihad

These are the last 50 players to score in City vs United clashes across all competitions, be it Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup or Community Shield.

"Last year we had a big success with the three trophies".

United need a match victor in the final third in these games and Alexis Sanchez could be that man to break City hearts once again this season. You know how it goes between City and United, you know the history, so it would be historic.

"The training facilities are world class and the games will be played in front of passionate crowds, making it an ideal environment for the players to gear up for the new season". Between 1997 and 1999, when two United Premier League titles sandwiched Arsenal's first, not even 80 points were required to triumph.

The 32-year-old said he is "very proud" to wear the United shirt and has urged the club to fight to help his employers win silverware. City also lost their last game in the Champions League knockout [VIDEO]stage against Liverpool.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is more than confident that he can bring the Premier League star over to Old Trafford next summer.

Scott Patterson: Horrible. United supporters have spent decades laughing at City, and this would be a huge taste of our own medicine. It should be seen whether the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager will rest the senior players for the league tie on weekend.

There are a few injury concerns following the global break and the subsequent Premier League game against Crystal Palace.

While United should be better equipped to keep City out given their defensive record, they'll be relying heavily on David De Gea.

It's the late game, kicking off at 5.30pm.

Quite a lot. City have the chance to wrap up the Premier League title with six games to go - only a win will be enough to complete the job. Nothing can stop City winning the league but it will be a minor point of pride for United to stop them doing it this weekend. The Reds of Manchester will make a short trip across town to the Etihad Stadium to lock horns with the Citizens, reports Goal.

Mourinho and Guardiola took over at United and City respectively at the same time, in the summer of 2016, yet while Guardiola has been lauded for turning City into a free-scoring juggernaut (Wednesday's defeat to Liverpool notwithstanding), Mourinho has been heavily criticised. He has added new dimensions to their game so Kyle Walker can play on the right of a back three and be comfortable there.
