Could the Premier League title race be decided this weekend? It would look that way if Manchester City beat United in the Manchester derby to go 11 points clear.
Phil Neville knows what it's like to play in the ref half of that rivalry and the ex-Man United and Everton player joined Kevin Kilbane and Joe Molloy on tonight's show to look ahead to a potentially decisive encounter on Sunday at Old Trafford.
A little further down the table, there is also the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool to come at Anfield just before the Manchester derby.
One issue looming over the United-City game will be the absence of Paul Pogba over his sending off in the thrilling 3-1 win at Arsenal.
"The disappointment coming out of the game, I was pretty flat after the game because of the Pogba sending off, not that I thought it wasn't a sending but I just thought next Sunday, in a game of that magnitude, you want the best players on the pitch," he said.
"And Pogba, for all his criticism, I think he's playing as well as he's ever done at Manchester United. He's got the character and the courage to play in a game like this next Sunday and that was my disappointment after the [Arsenal] game - not that United were missing Pogba but the actual game was going to miss someone of his magnitude."

"Pogba against De Bruyne and Silva would have been an unbelievable situation in midfield but that was my disappointment after the game."
City meanwhile have ground out 2-1 wins against Huddersfield, West Ham and Southampton thanks to late winners and rather than being a sign of a slowdown, Neville believes the manner of the narrow victories highlight the steel and class of Pep Guardiola's side.
"When we used to win titles at Manchester United, it was the Southampton game we used to look back on as turning points - games where you won without playing well, won under difficult circumstances but you showed a different side to your team's character, the ability never to give in and when they were celebrating on Wednesday night on the pitch, [Benjamin] Mendy went down with his mobile phone and about 30 people were in a huddle, I actually started as a Manchester United fan to get worried because I thought, when they were playing like that with fancy football and destroying teams, I thought, they've not been tested yet. But when this week, they've been tested by Huddersfield or by Southampton or yesterday by West Ham, I actually think they're Pep Guardiola's best wins in English football," he said, adding that any question marks about their ability to grind out wins have been brushed aside.

And he feels anything short of a victory for United on Sunday spells the end of the title race.
"If United don't win that game or take points off Man City, I can't see any other team in the league taking points off them or stopping this unbelievable run that they're on," he said, but acknowledged that United's sheer physical size, coupled with City's weakness at set pieces could be one area United could prosper but that Jose Mourinho's side will still need to be brave and on the front foot regardless and raise the intensity rather than sitting back too deeply and parking the bus.
He also shared his memories of the Merseyside derbies he played in and how it compared it to the Manchester version.
