Greater Manchester Police is making preparations to police tomorrow's much-anticipated Manchester derby.
Fans' leaders claim erecting netting to prevent missiles being thrown at players would be a knee-jerk reaction.
The Manchester City fan who ran on to the pitch and tried to confront Rio Ferdinand in yesterday's derby match has apologised.
It didn't take him long to win Manchester City's first Premier League title but Roberto Mancini says consistently trumping Manchester United to silverware will take time.
City sit three points behind United in the table and the Italian says that puts more pressure on his players ahead of the derby.
Sir Alex Ferguson says he won't be motivating his United players with tales of revenge ahead of their clash with Manchester City.
The blue half of the City did the double over the Reds last season, but the United boss says his side enjoy the challenge posed by their noisy neighbours.
