Andrew Cole, who spent eight seasons at United, has today revealed who he hopes to win the Manchester derby.

He spent a season at City and was their top scorer. He signed a new contract with them but then left the club for Portsmouth on transfer deadline day.

Cole still has a season ticket with United and is hoping we right the wrongs of the unjust 2-1 defeat last week.

“I look at this game just like a European game,” Cole told “United have gone away from home and lost a game they shouldn’t have lost. But they are only 2-1 down and that is not such a bad result. If things work out well – and everyone knows it’s going to be a very tough game – United will get the result. It will be a great match – I’m really looking forward to it.”
