A Great Stat About The Last 34 Manchester Derbys

The always entertaining Manchester derby is this weekend, and a very interesting stat has emerged in it's build-up.


There have been 34 games between the blue and red half of Manchester in the last 21 years and in only one of those games have the team who have taken the lead ended up in the losing side. Of those 33 games, there have only been 5 draws.

That one game was all the way back in November 1993 when two Niall Quinn goals gave City a two-nil lead before an Eric Cantona double and a Roy Keane late winner gave United the spoils.

This could be something to watch for on Sunday, especially when United have only opened the scoring twice in their last six away games, while City have conceded first only five times in their last 20 Premier League at home.
