England FA Cup — 08 January 2012

FA CupThis is definitely the match of the week in English Football even though it is an FA Cup fixture. In today’s encounter the Manchester sides won’t only be playing to make it to the next round of the FA Cup but to also impose their status of best side in English football. In the last quarter of a century Manchester United were definitely one of the elite’s in English football but in the last few years Manchester City have improved significantly thanks to their financial muscle.

These two sides already faced each other this season in a league match at Old Trafford. That match resulted in one of Manchester United’s biggest loss ever as Manchester City won 6-1. That day the citizens were impressive. Should they repeat such a performance today it would really mean that there is a shift of power within Manchester as City would be the dominant force. We believe that today’s match will be a tight encounter with Manchester City edging the win.

Football Cosmos Prediction: Manchester City 2 Manchester United 1
