It's Derby weekend! Manchester City vs Manchester United

The Soweto Derby has been postponed until further notice, however, there is another derby that ya'll can look forward to this Sunday. I'm talking about the Manchester Derby ;). Manchester United's Wayne Rooney takes on Manchester City Sergio Aguero at the Etihad. The first meeting between the two teams occurred on 12 November 1881. As of 31 October 2014, there have been 167 competitive meetings between the teams. United have won 69 and City 48, the remaining 50 games finishing as draws.

The biggest victories have been to City who have won 6–1 on two occasions in the official league (both times in the away fixture at Old Trafford) on 23 January 1926 and 23 October 2011. So don't forget to tune in tomorrow to find out who will come out tops when these two teams meet on Sunday 2/11/2014.
