The ups and downs of Manchester United

They may be having a poor campaign by their own high standards, but Manchester United's season hasn't been a total loss - they've managed to beat their city rivals, Manchester City, twice at the Etihad Stadium, and would really like to play the same fixture EVERY WEEK!

Having beaten the Sky Blues 2-1 on their home turf in early December, United repeated the feat in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg on Wednesday night, this time with a Juan Mata goal in a 1-0 win.

It's the only match we feel confident of winning!" laughed United's Norwegian boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United officials have now applied to the Premier League, with a request that the two teams play each other, if not every Saturday, then, at least, more often in the future.

The request is sure to be denied, as everyone hates Manchester United.
