Man Utd vs Man City at Old Trafford – Manchester Derby

When Manchester United play Manchester City, what have you got? A Manchester Derby of course! It’s always thrilling viewing and you’ve got the chance to see their 174th official Derby on Sky Sports on December 10th with a kick off time of 16:30.

The action takes place at Manchester United’s home ground Old Trafford. So who are you rooting for? Who do you think will win? There’s no way to know of course, but let’s take a look back at past games between these two Manchester teams…

They’ve played each other officially 174 times. Of these 174 matches, United have a slight lead, having won 72 matches, with City winning 50 and 52 draws.

Will the fact that Man Utd are playing at their home ground put them at an advantage? Well, perhaps. Out of the last 40 games, Man Utd have won 20, City have won 12, but 7 of those wins were played at home. Perhaps an indicator that a home game gives then an edge?

Then of course there’s the Premier League points being played for! Currently, Man Utd are just 8 points behind Man City so everything could change with the Manchester Derby. Both teams have had a pretty great start to the season. United won six of their first seven matches, while City stormed ahead with some amazing play in their early games.

Looking for a winning private plate?

There are plenty of ways in which football fans show their allegiance to their team. From a simple shirt to tattoos. But how about a private registration plate to show your support instead? It’s far more impressive than a shirt, it’s less painful than a tattoo, and of course if you change teams you can just change plates – ha-ha as if you’ll ever do that!

City fans could go for C1 TYN and United supporters could go for UTD 60Y (United Boy) or UTD 574R (United Star).
