Who's going to win the Premier league? Toss a coin. After Monday's nervy encounter between the two Manchester giants, the title is set for a thrilling climax.
The sports pubs around the county were thronged to enjoy the drama of the derby. The Orchard in Drumalee, which makes no attempt to hide its United allegiances was jam packed - mind you there were plenty of ABUs at it.
Meanwhile Fitzpatrick's Tavern (perceived as a Liverpool bar - and therefore delighted) and White's in Gowna also drew big crowds.
Of course City won the match with a Vincent Kompany header just before half time leaving the teams level on 83 points after 36 games.
City have the advantage of superior goal difference of 8 goals, but they have the perceived harder fixtures. The Sky Blues have Newcastle away and QPR at home while United end their season with the impressive Swansea at home and resurgent Sunderland away.
