Match Highlights

Sinclair, Vassell and Fowler hand City derby win!

City host Manchester United on Sunday as we look to extend our lead at the top of the Premier League table.

And to get in the Derby mood, we took a look back through the archives at some classic matches between the two rivals. 

This one immediately jumped out: City's 3-1 win over United back in 2006. 

Goals from Trevor Sinclair and Darius Vassell put City 2-0 up, but Ruud van Nistelrooy pulled a goal back for the visitors. 

However, Robbie Fowler's fine strike sealed a superb win for Stuart Pearce's side.
