A potentially historic, momentous Manchester derby is just hours away. Manchester City can clinch the Premier League title if they beat Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium today.
What a moment it would be – but Jose Mourinho would love to delay the party and with City having endured a grueling defeat to Liverpool in midweek might fancy his chances of getting a result today.
That feeling is bound to be affecting the nerves of some City fans. Derby day is always a nervous occasion, but what does it mean to you, the Blues?
We asked Twitter what derby day means to them and here are some of the responses.
Five hours to go!

This derby means more than most. Important to lift the fans, team and the PL trophy so can go into 2nd leg with belief as Champions! Massive game and not one for a weakened team!
