The biggest match of the English Premier League weekend is rapidly approaching. Manchester United are all set for a top of the table derby clash against their rivals Manchester City, with plenty at stake.
Victory for Jose Mourinho’s men would put them right back into the title race and open a gap on Chelsea below them, while a City win would put them 11 points clear heading into the busy festive period.
City have been in blistering form all season but after a defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk mid-week, can United capitalise on potential weakness and gave their title bid a massive boost?
Supporters are certainly expectant with many taking to social media this weekend to proclaim their confidence in the Red Devils’ ability to pick up all three points.
However, City bested Mourinho’s side in 2016 and will fancy their chances again this afternoon.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the encounters…
Huge game & I’m feeling confident, we can definitely win it, it’ll be a tough 1 tho, will take some serious discipline, the right attitude & clinical finishing, we’ve proved this ssn that we have what it takes & we need to do it again today #ManchesterDerby #ManchesterIsRed #MUFC

We are Manchester City’s toughest test & they will come up against a juggernaut today!
After that Teams will take confidence & City will mentally…

More than confident for the derby tomorrow. City have hit a blip and we're playing well. Anything less than a 3-0 win should be seen as a bad result. #MUFC
