GMP Prepare For Manchester Derby

Greater Manchester Police are reportedly staging one of their biggest operations for a Manchester derby in recent years. The service has confirmed pubs near the Etihad Stadium will be closed prior to and during the match.

The police also hope many city-centre pubs will close voluntarily to reduce the potential for trouble.

MCFC has also confirmed that sales of alcohol within the stadium will be confined to two per person.

For those who are not going to the match ITV1 are showing the game, live - kick-off 1pm.

The stakes are higher than ever for the rags going into this one. That could make for a powder keg based on recent derbies in East Manchester.
