This is one of the most heated derbies in England

City and United have played hundreds of games against each other, dating back to the 1980s when Manchester United was known as Manchester United and City as West Gorton. However, the rivalry was not widely known in the early years; it was billed as a match between two cities. Neverthless, the rivalry significance climbed in 1881, and by 1890, the games had gained prominence. As the rivalry grew, the pair became one of Europe’s dominant clubs, but Manchester United have had the most success.

The derby has featured numerous big games in which both clubs have humiliated each other and won every trophy possible; however, there is one trophy that Manchester City have yet to win, and that is the Champions League, something that United have won three times. Moreover, in terms of trophies, Manchester United boasts more trophies than rival City.

The derby has seen Manchester United far superior compared in every element, but they have not tasted a trophy since 2017, and Manchester City have won four Premier League titles since, while United’s last came in 2013. United also have brownie points in head-to-head matches.
