Despite Manchester City and Manchester United being nowhere near the Premier League title contention, their Sunday fixture will nonetheless still draw a lot of attention due to the rivalry between the two sides.


City remain 12 points adrift of leaders Leicester City while United are struggling for a top four finish in what has been a terrible season for the Red Devils.

Sunday’s match however remains highly interesting and will be followed keenly by supporters of both sides.

For City who are through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history, a home ground advantage could tilt the title in their favour.

City have been the better side in recent meetings at Etihad Stadium and coach Manuel Pellegrini will be out to get his third win in three years against United at home.

City striker Sergio Aguero has been lucky to score against United as he currently boasts of seven goals in as many matches. Add that to the fact that he has scored 11 goals at home makes him key to his side overcoming United on Sunday.

For United, a loss will almost rule them out of contention for a top four place and is one match they will be hoping all their best players are in good shape.

Leaders Leicester City will go eight points clear at the top as they host Crystal Palace on Saturday.


As things look, only a miracle will stop the Foxes from making history by winning the Premier League for the first time.

After being edged out of the Champions League, Arsenal will return on the domestic scene even more determined as they face Everton on Sunday.


With 11 points separating Arsenal with leaders Leicester, the Gunners have the perfect motivation to bridge the gap. The Premier League now remains the only hope for silverware for the Gunners and therefore are expected to give it their best shot.
