Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm GMT. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


United prepare to take on their neighbours having registered a 2-0 victory against West Ham United at Upton Park on Saturday.

Wayne Rooney starred for the Red Devils netting a first half brace. The England international opened the scoring in the eighth minute with a strike from just ahead of the halfway line noticing the Hammers goalkeeper Adrian off the line.

He got his second goal in the 33rd minute after Mark Noble failed to clear the ball away from the box and Rooney made no mistake in doubling United's advantage. The result keeps them in seventh spot in the league table with 51 points from 30 matches, 11 behind fourth placed Arsenal.

Meanwhile, City come into this game completely buoyed by their 5-0 win against relegation threatened Fulham at the Etihad Stadium last Saturday. Yaya Toure scored two goals from the penalty spot on either side of the half-time break and completed his hat trick in the 65th minute. Fernandinho and Martin Demichelis completed the rout after netting in the 84th and 88th minute respectively.

The win helped the Citizens go third in the league table after 28 matches with 63 points, having three games in hand on Chelsea who sit top with 69 points.

The season's first Manchester Derby at the Etihad ended 4-1 to Manuel Pellegrini's side with Sergio Aguero netting a brace while Toure and Samir Nasri got one each before Rooney scored a consolation goal late in the game for the reigning English champions.

United's hopes of retaining the title is a lost cause as they have a sizeable gap of 18 points against Chelsea with eight matches remaining to play till the end of the campaign. However, victory in the derby at home could power them push for a fourth place finish.

While City have three games in hand on the league leaders, a victory against their archrivals will certainly close the gap to three points thus adding more pressure on Jose Mourinho's side. Whatever the outcome of the derby, it will certainly make a significant impact as to where both sides will finish this campaign.

What Managers Say

David Moyes: "I've said many times how well the supporters have reacted to what has been a difficult season. They've been great and the atmosphere has been great inside Old Trafford. We've not always done our side of it but recently we have and the supporters responded to that as well. We go out to win every game, not just the derby. Obviously it means a lot more to the supporters and the city to win a derby game, but we go into every game with the same intention to win."

Manuel Pellegrini: "It's very important to be a consistent team from now to the end of the season, starting against United. We also expect to go and win there, but not just because United have had a difficult season. If we play a good game, of course we have the chance to win it. We are just trying to fight for the title. I know we must go game by game and we just have to win on Tuesday and then at Arsenal on Saturday after that."
