Its sure to be spectacular, and without doubt one of the biggest matches in Premier League history. Not only will it more than likely decide the destination of the title, but it could potentially signal the changing of the guard.

Bet365 will offer free bets worth £200/€200 to spend on the action tonight, as well as offering a superb in play free bet worth £50 to all customers. A superb offer, exclusive to all SqueakyBumTime visitors.

Going into this weekend, City are still underdogs for the title as they are three points behind United with three games remaining. However, their superior goal difference means that victory on Monday evening would take them top of the table.

Essentially, they have their fate in their own hands already as three wins from their remaining games would hand them the Premier League title.

It is a win and nothing less that will do for Roberto Mancini’s men though. United on the other hand would be more than happy with a draw and this is why they are still favourites for the title. You would definitely rather be in their position with points on the board going into this game.

As for the game itself, rather than the title, it is City’s home advantage that makes them slight favourites. They have only dropped points once at home all year and backed by a passionate crowd, many expect them to nick the win.

It isn’t too often that Manchester United disappoint for two games in succession though and after their 4-4 draw with Everton last time out, Sir Alex Ferguson will be demanding the biggest of responses from his team.

Overall, this game couldn’t be more beautifully set up if it was written at the start of the season and we haven’t even mentioned the fact that in favour City striker Carlos Tevez will be leading the line against his former club.

This one gets underway at 8pm on Monday evening.
