Manchester City vs Manchester United: Live Score and Updates

Manchester United and Manchester City are going face each other tomorrow (30 November 2008) in the first Manchester derby of the season. This is a very important match for several reasons. First, this is not just a match worth 3 points; rather both sides will look to gain psychological boost by winning this traditionally prestigious clash. On the back of two goalless draws, Manchester United will be looking to come back in the winning track, while host Manchester City would like to continue their recent impressive form. With Manchester United looking to take revenge of their 2 defeats of last season, the upcoming Manchester derby seems to be a spicy encounter for the fans of either side.

Match: Manchester City vs Manchester United, English Premier League 2008-09

Date: 30 November 2008, Sunday

Venue: City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester

Kick off: 13:30 BST (British Standard Time)

Manchester City takes the 11th place in the league table with 17 points thanks to 5 wins, 2 draws and 7 defeats. Well, the overall record of City is not impressive at all, but their recent high-flying form does not reflect their overall statistics of the season so far. Manchester City defeated Arsenal 3-0 at home in their recent premier league encounter, before posting a 2-0 away victory at FC Schalke 04 in UEFA Cup. So, they have every bit of possibility to go into the match full of confident. Moreover, they will also have home advantage in the match. Last season’s corresponding fixture saw Manchester City coming out winner 1-0, despite United had dominance over the hosts throughout the match. Later on, City also defeated their cross-town rivals away on a day which was the 50th anniversary of Munich tragedy.

So, Manchester United is gearing up to take revenge of their two defeats of last season. However, the Red Devils are not at the top of their form as they could only pick up 2 points from their last two outings in all competitions. In fact, they had only 2 wins out of last 6 matches in all competitions. Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has said that Sir Alex Ferguson boys are not getting used to defeats very often and that is why, City manager wants Ferguson and his boys to become more acquainted with defeats.

Goal.com reported:

According to The Sun, he said: "You have to understand the top managers don’t get beaten very often, so sometimes they don’t take it as well as other managers."

The champions have already lost twice this season - to Arsenal and Liverpool - and the City boss suggested that Sir Alex needs to become more familiar with the taste of defeat. The Welshman continued: "You have to get used to getting beaten sometimes, myself included."

Manchester United is now at the 3rd place in the league standing with 25 points from 13 matches including. The defending champions are now 8 points behind leaders Chelsea and Liverpool. United drew with Aston Villa away in their recent league encounter, before coming out with a goalless draw against Villarreal in Europe.

Manchester City fans have good news as their star forward Robinho is all set to return to action after missing out the trip to Schalke due to ankle injury. Gelson Fernandes and Pablo Zabaleta are also available for the important derby clash. Manchester United’s Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov is also expected to be available for the short trip to Eastlands. Berbatov has just recovered from hamstring injury sustained while representing Bulgaria in a friendly match. Captain Gary Neville and Paul Scholes have been back to training. However, Neville is most likely to be included in the squad for the match against Manchester City.
