Man City, Man United battle for EPL title in key Manchester derby

Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez

With only three games left, the battle for the Premier League title may all come down to Monday’s match between leaders Manchester United and Manchester City. A surging United currently holds the top spot with 83 points, while slumping City is one win behind, with 80 points. Both teams are nearly 20 points clear of third-place Arsenal.

The excitement expectation for the “biggest Manchester derby ever” is so high that the cable television powers-that-be moved coverage from ESPN2 all the way to the real deal – ESPN. It marks the first time that a weekday Premier League match will air on the flagship sports network.

• Manchester City vs Manchester United on Monday, April 30, coverage beginning at 2:30pm (ESPN)

—————————-

After a dramatic semifinal round that saw Fernando Torres actually score – in stoppage time, no less – and Cristiano Ronaldo miss a penalty kick, Chelsea and Bayern Munich defeated Barcelona and Real Madrid to reach the Champions League final. The Championship match will be played on Saturday, May 19 in Munich.
