Man Utd v Man City: 10 fascinating facts

Ten fascinating facts ahead of this weekend’s much-awaited derby clash between Manchester United and Manchester City.

City’s record at Old Trafford is not the best – but there’s always Carlos Tevez.

1. Manchester City have won just one of their last 26 visits to Old Trafford.
2. Last season’s league clash at Old Trafford was described by Sir
Alex Ferguson as “probably the best derby of all time” after Michael
Owen’s 96th-minute winner gave United a 4-3 victory.
3. City have failed to score in four of their last five league encounters with United.
4. United have earned 37 points out of a possible 39 at Old Trafford this season – 10 more than the next best home record.
 
5. United have not conceded a first-half goal at Old Trafford in the Barclays Premier League since April 2010.

6. City have not lost any of the 25 league games in which Carlos Tevez has scored, winning 23 of them.

7. Tevez has scored four goals in his last six appearances against United in all competitions.

8. Only Arsenal have a superior away record in the Premier League
than City this season – but they are winless in their last three on the
road.

9. Paul Scholes has scored seven goals in Manchester derbies but
former City pair Joe Hayes and Francis Lee lead the way with 10 goals
each.

10. Sir Matt Busby played over 200 games for City in the 1920s and
1930s before spending 24 successful years in charge of United.
