Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini admits he would take particular pleasure from beating Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Not just because of the bragging rights but because of the impetus he believes it would give his side in the run-in for the Barclays Premier League title.
Mancini said: "I like to play this game. I like to play at Old Trafford because it is better to win there than at home.
"Because when you win away in a derby it is more important for our head and our personality.
"You look at a team (United) that was winning everything and a team (City) that hasn't won anything for a long time. This can change at any moment."
