Manchester City vs Manchester United: Same City Rivals.

Although  the red devils have dominated their City rivals for years, the rise of the latter, in recent years, has made the rivalry between the two clubs more thrilling.
Let us have a look at their rivalry since the pre and post Ferguson era.

Derby:Five greatest matches of all time

Man United 0-1 Man City, April 1974: Denis Law’s back-heel relegates United.

Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney dominate Manchester Derby

Considering the players who have had the most impact in the derby, City’s Sergio Aguero and United’s Wayne Rooney lead the list with 11 goals.

Apart from them, City’s Joe Hayes and Lee too have scored 10 goals each.

United legend, Sir Bobby Charlton, makes the list as well, having scored nine goals against the rivals.

Post Ferguson era
City dominate Manchester Derby in post-Ferguson era

The sides have clashed 11 times since legendary United manager Sir Alex Ferguson called curtains on his career after 2012-13 season.

Of those 11 ties, City have managed to win six, while United could only pocket three wins. While City won the last meeting between the two 3-1 at Etihad Stadium, United’s win came in 2018, when they won 3-2.

Manchester City will face Manchester united again this weekend in a crunch tie that could take the red devils out of contention for top 4 or throw open the title challenge if they win.
