Manchester City will aim to pick up the pieces after their morale-sapping defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday and claim a win over rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Here's a look at some recent memorable meetings between the two Manchester giants:
Manchester United 4 Manchester City 3 - Premier League, September 20, 2009
Michael Owen scored a dramatic late winner in a thrilling derby at Old Trafford. City had come from behind to level on three occasions throughout the match, including in the 90th minute when Craig Bellamy thought he had ensured City took a share of the spoils. It was not to be, however, as Owen slotted in the winning goal after six minutes of stoppage time.
Manchester City 1 Manchester United 0 - FA Cup, April 16, 2011
After failing to win either of the season's league encounters, City managed to defeat their bitter rivals at Wembley in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. The match was a cagey affair before Yaya Toure scored the winning goal after 52 minutes. City went on to win the cup, defeating Stoke in the final.
Manchester United 3 Manchester City 2 - Community Shield, August 7, 2011
United managed to exact revenge on City for their FA Cup defeat with a stunning second-half comeback at Wembley. Joleon Lescott and Edin Dzeko had put City 2-0 in front at half-time, but United responded brilliantly after the break with goals from Chris Smalling and Nani just before the hour levelling things up. Then, in the 90th minute, Nani added his second of the game to secure the Shield for United.
Manchester United 1 Manchester City 6 - Premier League, October 23, 2011
City produced a brilliant display to completely dismantle their local title rivals. The first half had been close, with City leading narrowly thanks to a Mario Balotelli strike. However, it all changed in the second period once Jonny Evans had been sent off two minutes after the restart. United capitulated and goals from Balotelli, Sergio Aguero, David Silva and two from Dzeko ensured City thoroughly embarrassed their neighbours.
Manchester City 1 Manchester United 0 - Premier League, April 30, 2012
This was arguably the most important Manchester derby in decades. The two clubs were battling it out for the Premier League title, with United going into the game three points ahead of City. The Sky Blues scored the winner on the stroke of half-time when captain Vincent Kompany nodded in from a corner. Victory moved City to the top of the Premier League on goal difference, having been eight points behind United just a month prior. City held their nerve and beat United to the league title come May.
