United will be hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the season when neighbours City travel to Old Trafford on Sunday for one of the most eagerly-anticipated matches of the campaign.

City are also unbeaten this season and head United by two points at the top of the Premier League table. Both sides have scored more than 50 goals between them this season and Sunday's clash should provide some indication as to Roberto Mancini's title aspirations.

In anticipation of Sunday's match, the IBTimes takes a look at six of the best matches between the two sides from previous years:

1. United 0-1 City, Division One, 27 April, 1974

2. City 3-3 United, Division, 27 October, 1990

3. City 2-3 United, Premier League, 7 November, 1993

4. United 5-0 City, Division One, 10 November, 1994

5. City 3 - 1 United, Premier League, 9 November, 2002

6. United 4 - 3 City, Premier League, 21 September, 2009
