Manchester United’s lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to twelve points as they lost the 165th Manchester derby to rivals City at Old Trafford last night.
An end to end first half surprisingly finished without a goal, with James Milner giving the visitors the lead five minutes after the break.
Sir Alex Ferguson is set to name to completely different sides for the two fixtures over Easter weekend, according to The Mirror.
The Red Devils will recommence their challenge for the Premier League title fifteen points ahead of Manchester City, potentially allowing for a degree of first teamers to be rested ahead of Monday’s FA Cup quarter final replay with Chelsea.
