This weekend’s Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium might not carry as much weight as many would have expected it to when the fixtures were released but it is still one of the most fiercely competed fixtures in the country and both sides are still in need for points.

It is also likely to be the last derby for both managers with City boss Manuel Pellegrini making way for Pep Guardiola in the summer while beleaguered United gaffer Louis van Gaal expected to be put out of his Old Trafford misery in the summer.
But there have been some classic encounters of late and here we look at five of the best Manchester derbies!
