It’s a very important Manchester Derby in the EFL Cup

It’s always an occasion when Manchester United and Manchester City, so today’s EFL Cup tie could provide good theater at Old Trafford (2:55 p.m. ET, BeIn Sports). United comes in on the heels of a 4-0 hiding over the weekend in manager Jose Mourinho’s return to Chelsea, while City was also less than its best […]

What did we learn from the Manchester Derby

I believe in transparency, which is why in an effort for full transparency I should disclose right at the beginning of this post that I am a Manchester United fan. A very big one actually. Now, let me start off by saying Manchester City are a very good team. Better then I thought they would […]

Watch: Claudio Bravo’s howler set up Zlatan Ibrahimovic goal

Manchester United pulled within one late in the first half when Claudio Bravo misjudged a set piece and allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score in his Manchester Derby debut. The Spanish keeper, who was brought in to fit Pep Guardiola’s system a little better, made a mess of a set piece and allowed United an avenue […]

Watch: Kevin De Bruyne opens the scoring for City in the Manchester Derby

Manchester City drew first blood in the Manchester Derby when Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring on 15 minutes. City had dominated the early portion of today’s Derby, and De Bruyne’s goal punctuated that fact. Ironically the goal was set up by a long ball from deep in City’s own end. The buildup play completely bypassed […]

Manchester Derby ends in a very listless 0-0 draw

This is going to be rather short because there really isn’t much to talk about in this Manchester Derby. In a highly defensive battle, both teams walked away with a point in a 0-0 draw. Sure the game had its moments and it looked like Manchester United was more concerned about getting a winner but […]

United destroys City in WILD Manchester Derby

The Manchester Derby started with the hope that we were going to get a game featuring two top teams who don’t like each other in a battle for 3rd place. The Manchester Derby ended in such a way that would make George R. R. Martin think was too brutal for someone to endure. When it […]

Who needs to win the Manchester Derby the most?

I know, I know, both teams obviously need to win this game. If nothing else, both teams want to win so they don’t see the other team win. But alas, one of these teams needs to win this latest version of the Manchester Derby more over the other and that’s what this is for. For […]

Who Will Win the Manchester Derby?

I’ll admit it, I’m horrible at making predictions. I’m usually wrong, like everyone else, so I decided that I’m passing the buck and letting FIFA 15 decide. We put both teams on the field, let it go to computer vs. computer and we see what happens. Let’s see if FIFA is as accurate as it […]

What a Manchester Derby Win Means For Each Team

In the Premier League, three points are worth their weight in gold. That’s not hyperbolic, millions of dollars (or pounds sterling if you want to be like that) are at stake every game. Such is the nature of such a closely contested league. Even midtable teams get more money for placing one league standing higher, […]
