Bitter Blues looking to dent United's title hopes.

United are set to take on the Bitters, aka Manchester City, the Citizens fortunes have turned around of late following wins over Everton, Blackburn, West Brom and Hamburg, so it should be a decent game, especially if Mark Hughes selects his flare players; I refer to Robinho and Elano.

For their part, United need to keep on winning after Liverpool predictably rolled over West Ham United, thus ensuring the pressure remains on the champions. I didn't expect anything less from Liverpool (or West Ham), who only have to play West Brom and Spurs. The "Merseyside Reds" will go on to take all six points from those games which means that United have to take seven points from their four remaining games.

With every victory United take a giant step towards the title and so while winning today is not essential - in mathematical terms at least anyway - it is a derby and so winning really does matter. In many ways as far as today's derby is concerned the title race is secondary. Putting City in their place is paramount, a thumping win always give you a nice Monday morning glowing feeling - let's hope the champions can heap more misery on the blues and the on looking Scousers.
