Maicon seeking Premier League title boost from Manchester derby

Manchester City defender Maicon is excited about getting his first taste of Manchester derby on Sunday, Sky Sports reports.

Maicon, who joined City in the summer from Inter, will have his first meeting with cross-town rivals Manchester United as the top two teams in the Premier League square off in their first meeting of the campaign. And for Maicon, who has fond memories of the Milan derbies against Milan, says derbies always hold a special place in the player’s minds. “All over the world, the derby is a different game to any other,” he said.


My strongest memory of the Milan derbies was the day Inter won 4-0 and we also won the Champions League in the same season,” Maicon said, referring to Inter's 2009-10 season. “It was a great game, a great derby, difficult to forget.


City and United are yet to meet this season, with City putting an unbeaten streak on the line as they host United, who are currently three points clear at the top. A win for United would not only open up a sizeable gap and end that streak, but could be a huge boost heading into the Christmas period, something Maicon is aware of.


remember playing for Cruzeiro against Atletico Mineiro (in the Brazilian leagues), at a time when Mineiro were the better team. We won that game, and it changed our whole season for the better.


That is something that is built into derbies - It can give the team a boost of confidence for the rest of the season.


Maicon, who has made eight appearances for City so far this season, is also confident his side has what it takes to reclaim the title this season. He said: “We are working for (the title) every week. It is up to us to contribute to change the history of the club.”
