Old foes, Manchester United versus Manchester City

April 7, would see Manchester United travel to the other half of the city to face their rivals Manchester City who have all but lifted the Premier League trophy this season.

The game would be a highly anticipated encounter as the top two teams in the league lock horns at the Etihad. City are in commendable form and appear to be in an unmatched stride.

A win for Pep Guardiola's men would see them being the champions of England officially whereas any possible point for United would all but ensure the second spot for them.

That said, here is a look at the reasons why Pep Guardiola would have to wait to wrap the Premier League on some other day than the Manchester derby.


#3 The bus parking

Manchester City v Manchester United - Premier League
Jose parked the bus last time he visited Etihad.

It would be no surprise what Jose would be asking his troops to do at the Etihad. In such a crucial game, where the pride of the club is on line, it should not be difficult to imagine United simply sitting deep.

In the past, Jose has pocketed some big teams like Pep's Barcelona, to deprive them of three points.

If United manage to hold City, just like they did last year in the same fixture, they can keep the scoreboard unaltered. It would be enough to avoid the sight of City celebrating as the champions of England after thrashing their biggest rivals.

In such an event, Jose would certainly be grinning in his post-match press-briefing.
