After the next Manchester Derby was announced to be taking place on Thursday the 27th of April, the fans in the Transfer Tavern have already started thinking about which club will seal the win…
Indeed, the game will be vitally important for both sides. Whilst Manchester City are looking to solidify their position in the top four, Manchester United are looking to break their way into the leading group – and so a quick, free-flowing game of football is likely to be on the cards next month.
However, Guardiola may want to re-think his strategy ahead of the game – with the last clash between the two clubs on a Thursday providing quite the cause for concern for the Spaniard.
According to OptaJoe on Twitter, the last time the two sides met on a Thursday saw Manchester United win the game 5-0.

Indeed, when you consider how poor Man City’s defence has been this season, our landlord wouldn’t be surprised to see the Citizens ship five goals against their Manchester rivals.
The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty confident now…
