Speaking to yesterday's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Welsh wizard made his prediction of an all-or-nothing decider. United lead City by three points with eight games remaining following their 1-0 win at Fulham on Monday night thanks to Wayne Rooney's 21st top-flight goal of the campaign.

But crucially, City have a better goal-difference and will be the hosts when the sides next meet. "We have the experience but City have the hunger, if we both keeping going like this, everything will be decided in the derby," said Giggs. Both sides would still have two games left after the derby.
