The title race could take yet another twist on Sunday with both Manchester sides in action. William Hill are offering 14/1 that Manchester United win and Manchester City lose, leaving the Reds eight points ahead before their game next weekend. Hills also offer 10/1 that the opposite happens and Manchester City close the gap to just two points. The favourite is that United retain their five point gap (at 4/9) with United having the chance to win the Premier League at the home of their bitter rivals. Hills are go 5/2 that they do just that (2/7 they do not).
Manchester United would surely love the opportunity to win the title at the Etihad, but in the same vein, City will be determined not to let that happen and the derby next week could hinge on the two games on Sunday, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Alex Ferguson talked about how he expects that Wayne Rooney will beat Bobby Charltons Manchester United goalscoring record and William Hill go 2/1 that he just that during his career (4/11 that doesnt).
How many points will Manchester United be clear after this weeks round of Premier League fixtures: 10/1 two; 5/1 three; 50/1 four; 4/9 five; 50/1 six; 7/1 seven; 14/1 eight
Manchester United to win the League at Manchester City: 5/2 yes; 2/7 no
Wayne Rooney to beat Bobby Charltons Manchester United goalscoring record: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no
