Man Utd midfielder Fletcher: We can't surrender another six points to Man City

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher says it's time for derby momentum to swing back in their favour.

Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher says it's time for derby momentum to swing back in their favour.

Manchester City's six-point haul in the local dust-ups via the 6-1 October 2011 humiliation of the Reds at Old Trafford and the vital 1-0 win at the Etihad Stadium in April’s key run-in cost United a 20th crown.

And Fletcher believes it is time league leaders United turned the tide.

“Last season we lost twice against City and we lost the league so that was a major factor in that,” he admitted.

“We don’t want to give them any advantage by beating us. It is about time we got a result against them.”
