There was a wonderful show between Manchester City vs Manchester United held by EA Sports, where you usually buy FIFA 15 Coins from. Since the arrival of Sheikh Mansour and his many millions at Manchester City, the Manchester derby has undertaken a far more important role at the top of the Premier League.
The 6-1 victory a few years ago at Old Trafford felt like a real statement of intent and as City travel to play Manchester United on Sunday, they need a repeat performance.
Having slipped behind their arch rivals in the table, this game is pivotal for a number of reasons and we couldn’t wait to see what it is going to happen.
Now obviously the first issue we have is that of team selection but thankfully for Man United, this wasn’t a particularly hard task. Louis van Gaal’s side have been in excellent form recently and we can’t see him making any changes before the derby.
Although, having said that, it is now a certainty that the Dutch tactician will change to something like a 3-6-1.
Meanwhile, for City, we thought Manuel Pellegrini would have to go with three in midfield to match United so we brought James Milner into the team at the expense of Edin Dzeko.
Picking the ball up on the edge of the box, Rooney left Toure for dead with a lovely piece of skill but he rushed his shot, putting it wide of Hart’s goal. The United skipper then forced a world-class save out of Hart when he hit a shot with bend and dip from the edge of the area.
Van Gaal pushed for the equaliser by calling for Adnan Januzaj and Angel Di Maria but his team was about to be sucker-punched in the cruellest way possible. In the final seconds as United threw everyone forward, the Red Devils were caught on the counter as Aguero and City substitute Dzeko broke. The Bosnian played the ball through to Aguero and the City man kept his cool to lift the ball over De Gea.
