Man United V Man City

City fans will have Oct. 23, 2011 etched in their memory for years to come. That was the day the blue half of Manchester celebrated a 6-1 league victory at Old Trafford that underlined the team’s emergence as a genuine force for the first time in a generation.

United has had to wait 11 weeks for payback, and will also be keen to exact revenge following a 1-0 loss to its neighbor in last season’s FA Cup semifinal at Wembley.

City went on to win the final to end the club’s 35-year trophy drought.
