When the football giants of Manchester meet, their fans await with bated breath around the world. Each pulsating encounter ignites passion, sparks debate and delivers unforgettable glimpses of a game that’s being played at its highest level.

And they had tried but failed 6 months earlier to sign Robin van Persie – now playing sublimely for Sir Alex’s league leaders.
By the game’s end that failed move would be one City would sorely regret.
