Manchester United vs Manchester City
Competition: 2013/2014 English Premier League, Round 31
Match date: Tuesday, 25 March 2014 - Kick Off Time: 19:45 GMT - 19:45 CET

Man United enter this midweek in 7th place and will need to start taking results as the season winds down if they hope to gain Europa League passage for next year. The Red Devils fell last weekend in league action to Liverpool 3-0, but opposed to sulking, they've responded with two crucial victories that saw them through to the round of 8 in the Champions League as well as grabbing 3 more vital points in their pursuit for 5th place. Both victories ended 3-0 with excellent displays from Robin van Persie on Wednesday and Wayne Rooney on Saturday. Rooney scored a delicious, Beckham-esque goal on the weekend at Upton Park, finishing from the halfway line. But all of a sudden, just when manager David Moyes has his side playing well, star striker Robin van Persie gets ruled out for 4-6 weeks, making him unlikely for both of their matches with Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Furthermore, Vidic has a red card and will not be eligible for the derby this Tuesday.
Manchester City team still control their own English Premier League destiny after thrashing Fulham on Saturday 5-0. Yaya Toure continued in his seemingly always consistent ways, netting a hat-trick and pushing his side above Arsenal for 3rd place. They do however have 2 games in hand on 2nd place Liverpool and 3 on league-leaders Chelsea, so the title is theirs for the taking. But a horrendous upcoming schedule sees the Citizens faced with Man United (a), Arsenal (a), Southampton (h), and Liverpool (a), which makes this game all the more important for them to snatch all 3 points from. Sergio Aguero is still a glaring out, but they have more than ample options in attack to score on a beleaguered backline for Manchester United that only gets worse this Tuesday with Vidic suspended. City have won their last 2 trips to Old Trafford.
