Manchester derby has taken a more important role at the top of the Premier League, since Sheikh Mansour arrive at Manchester City. They need a repeat the real statement of intent which a 6-1 victory at Old Trafford a few years ago when play Manchester United on Sunday.
Having slipped behind their arch rivals in the table, this game is pivotal for a number of reasons and we couldn’t wait to see what it is going to happen. So, we decided that it was time for FIFA 15 Manchester United vs Manchester City.
FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTW 30 featuring Cristiano Ronaldo. Now obviously the first issue we have is that of team selection but thankfully for Man United, this wasn’t a particularly hard task. Louis van Gaal’s side have been in excellent form recently and we can’t see him making any changes before the derby.
Although, having said that, it is now a certainty that the Dutch tactician will change to something like a 3-6-1. Meanwhile, for City, we thought Manuel Pellegrini would have to go with three in midfield to match United so we brought James Milner into the team at the expense of Edin Dzeko.
City got off to a quick start, as you would expect given their situation, and following a sublime ball over the top by Milner, Sergio Aguero brought the first save of the match out of David De Gea. The Argentine’s first-time volley was a thing of beauty but De Gea was equal to it, diving to his left to tip it around for a corner. United responded instantly, though, as club captain Wayne Rooney was played through on goal; luckily for City, Joe Hart was out quickly to meet him.
The first booking of the game came when City midfielder Yaya Toure lunged in on Ander Herrera as the Spaniard broke through. Herrera, advancing on the City goal, forced Toure into making a professional foul, although we’re not sure it required so much. Needless to say, he was booked for his troubles. If this was a game for cool heads it was sorely lacking them as Toure’s challenge showed. Players were passing the ball to the opposition almost at will and at one point the usually reliable Milner just ran the ball out of play.
This is the first half performance of fighting. What an exciting game, is not it? Now, let us look forward to the second half of the game.
