The Manchester derby is almost here. Man City and Man United will battle it out for three points in the Women's Super League. It is one of the biggest rivalries in club football, but this time, with more than pride to play for.

A critical game for both clubs; City must win to keep their chances of winning the WSL alive, and for United, an opportunity to boost their hopes of securing a Champions League place.

Man City remain on top with Chelsea, while Arsenal's chances have dimmed considerably after their defeat last week.

Man United are six points away from third but have an equal number of points to fifth-place Liverpool.

In the build-up to the derby, the Manchester City official website shared a video of various players' blind ranking goals scored over their rivals (Blind ranking meaning -putting a goal on a number from either first to fifth without knowing which goal comes next).

Despite this not being a blind ranking, we've decided to rank the five goals provided by Man City over the past few seasons. It's a difficult one to decide on, as there are some outstanding goals to choose from.

To watch the players rank these goals, watch here.


Man City has played United twice this season, making it three times this weekend. The Cityzens have scored a total of five goals against them and only conceded two (3-1 and 2-1); they'll be hoping to add to that total while keeping the other number at two.

Khadija Shaw, Chloe Kelly, Jill Roord, and a double for Lauren Hemp are the players behind those goals thus far. These names will aim to once again find the back of the net.

Manchester City vs Manchester United starts at 12:30 (UK) on Saturday, the 23rd.

Two scenarios, two sets of supporters, two clubs, and one winner.

Will Manchester remain Blue? Or will there be a re-paint of Red?
