Carrick insists Manchester derby will not decide Premier League title race

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has said Monday evening’s derby between United and Manchester City will not decide the outcome of the Premier League title race between the two sides, the Daily Mail has reported.



United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had suggested the winners of the match at the Etihad Stadium would go on to lift the title at the end of the season but Carrick declined to agree with his manager, insisting that the battle between the two sides would continue on past Monday.


Carrick said: “Whatever happens, the title race won’t be over at the final whistle. This is going to be a big three points but there will still be two games left to play and the way the last couple of weeks have gone, I don’t think you can look at the derby as a decider.


Once the Manchester derby is out of the way United face Swansea City and Sunderland while City take on Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers. A win for United in the derby would take Ferguson’s men six points clear with those two games to play, while a City triumph would take Mancini’s team level on points with United but top of the table on goal difference.
