It was first v third at Carrington, with Ben Wilkinson's youngsters looking to maintain our lead at the top of the table with just two matches of the season remaining.
Nico O'Reilly scored a spectacular scorpion kick in the closing stages of our previous match against Middlesbrough, extend City’s winning streak to six league games with a 2-1 victory.
It meant we started the day one point above second-placed Sunderland.
City and United hadn't met since the reverse leg back in November. Despite a strong performance in the reverse fixture, we suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat at the City Football Academy.
With Sunderland hot on our heels ahead of kick-off, victory was essential to ensure our dreams of a third successive U18 Premier League title remained in our hands.
Could Ben Wilkinson's side find the all-important three points in the derby?
