Manchester United take a short trip across town on Saturday to face local rivals Manchester City. United have the chance to build on the momentum of Wednesday’s impressive home win over Tottenham Hotspur, as well as continue their stop-start climb up the Premier League. City, for their part, can already barely avoid to drop points as they find themselves 11 points behind the league leaders.
Under normal circumstances, the chance to deal a death blow to City’s title hopes and also deny them the chance to match United as the only club in England to win three Premier League titles in a row would be a straightforward goal. Sadly for the Reds, however, a normally satisfying victory would also have the effect of putting Liverpool in pole position to win their first league title since before the invention of the back pass rule. We are truly living in the worst timeline.
