Man City vs Man Utd FA Cup 2012 Highlights 8 January 2012: Man City vs Man Utd Live FA Cup 2012 match highlights goals videos replay match videos here after 8 January 2012 match. Manchester City vs Manchester United FA CUP 2012 football match a big and most viewed match in FA Cup 2012 session. The FA Cup draw delivered an extra special present this time around, matching Manchester City and Manchester United against each other in the third round proper. The Red Devils are set to visit Etihad Stadium, but there’s more than a spot in the next round for them after they were taken apart by the Citizens to the tune of 6-1 earlier this season. Now it’s a matter of getting revenge too and thanks to a long list of absences on the Citizens’ side, they might be able to get it.
After five straight league wins, United have slipped to consecutive defeats to out-of-form Blackburn and Newcastle. It’s a concern for the champions ahead of such a huge occasion, not least with opponents Manchester City now three points clear at the top of the table. City themselves slipped to a 1-0 loss at Sunderland but recovered to sink Liverpool 3-0 to maintain a 100 per cent home record in the Barclays Premier League. Indeed, Roberto Mancini’s team have won their last 18 domestic fixtures at the Etihad Stadium.When it comes to Manchester football and the midfield it is usually United who have problems, but this time around it is the Citizens who have midfield problems. Injuries, suspension and the Africa Cup of Nations have combined to leave City depleted in the center of the pitch. All of a sudden, United might have a rare advantage in the middle.
Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney returned at Newcastle but there’s hope the likes of Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Tom Cleverley could soon bolster the Reds further. Nemanja Vidic’s prolonged absence remains a massive blow while Anders Lindegaard and David De Gea continue to battle for the keeper’s jersey. City are fighting to keep brothers Kolo and Yaya Toure but Ivory Coast are intent on exercising their right to call up the pair for the African Cup of Nations. Gareth Barry is suspended after his red card against Liverpool and Mario Balotelli has been ruled out.

Man City vs Man United Live Match Previews Prediction:
Until losing two in a row, United had won five straight games. City has won three, drawn one and lost one in their last five matches. Both of these teams boast enough firepower to run up the scoreboard, as witnessed in City’s 6-1 win in October, but this game should be a lot closer. It’s possible that it could end in a draw, forcing a replay. This game will tell how much character the United players have as they should want to give it their all to avenge their previous loss to City.
