First Manchester Derby to Set the EPL on Fire via

Jose's Manchester United go head to head with Pep's Manchester City at Old Trafford in an epic clash on Saturday 10th of September 2016.

Old Trafford, Manchester, England: As the English Premier League Season goes on full throttle there couldn't have been a bigger contest than Manchester United v Manchester City to kick off the first Derby of 2016. The massively hyped match is scheduled in Saturday 10th September at "the theatre of dreams", Old Trafford stadium.

Two giant clubs with most remarkable football talent and the 2 best managers in the world will electrify fans from both sides of Manchester in what truly will be a clash of titans. Jose Mourinho will continue his rivalry with Pep Guardiola to improve his record against the Spanish miracle worker.

Ted Evans of ESPN had this to say about the two managers and their continuing rivalry from Spain: "The pressure is all on Jose Mourinho. After a 100 percent opening to the Premier League season, the Manchester United manager might have expected to go into the derby against Manchester City on Saturday on a high. Instead, his impact at Old Trafford has been overshadowed by Pep Guardiola's start at Manchester City."


The match will feature the world's most expensive footballer Paul Pogba, United's lucky charm Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the workhorse Juan Mata, teen wonder Marcus Rashford and a massively gifted Red Devil squad. United will possibly miss their giant in midfield Marouane Fellaini and marquee signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan due to injuries. City will definitely miss, Sergio Aguero, their captain and top scorer for the last 2 seasons due to a 3 match disciplinary ban. However, the Etihad blues will feature a brilliant squad of Nolito, David Silva, Yaya Toure, Ilkay Gundogan, Leroy Sane, Kevin Debruyne, Raheem Sterling and others to match United's power at Old Trafford. 41 year old FA referee Mark Clattenburg has been put in charge for the Manchester Derby. He has also refereed the last two Manchester Derbies at Old Trafford and is known for his lenient treatment of fouls.

Ticket information, travel services, accommodation and seat availability for the match can be checked on the official Manchester United website.
