Premier League: Gameweek Seven Results

Sir Alex Ferguson, Man Utd Manager

Manchester United v Manchester City

United, with 19 points, headed into the international break with only a single goal advantage over City, who also have 19 points.

Manchester Derby October 23, 2011

Fans are gearing up for the first Manchester derby clash of the season, at Old Trafford on October 23.

Man Utd boss, Sir Alex Ferguson recently stated that Roberto Mancini and his men did not catch him by surprise.

‘I’ve said all along that would happen,’ said Fergie.

‘They are a good team and they were always going to be there or thereabouts.

‘ Sergio Aguero was bound to do well, coming into the Premier League, because he is such a goal threat around the penalty box. David Silva is also a very good player.

‘We just have to make sure we are ready for City when we meet them.’

‘All derbies are big now, that is the nature of the landscape,’ said Ferguson.

‘The impetus City now have – they have a huge squad of players and the financial power to attract some of the best footballers in the world – actually changes the focus of the derby these days.

‘The talking point isn’t so much the actual game but the dynamics of how City have changed football and what we do to compete with that.’

Prior to the Manchester Derby, United will clash with Liverpool.

 ‘We have been poor there of late," Ferguson added.

‘On a couple of occasions we have been out-fought by them, which is disappointing.

‘The atmosphere plays a part. Every time we go there it is as if it’s the biggest game of the century.’
