Sir Alex Ferguson has labelled next week's Manchester derby as the most important in his entire career after branding the April 30 encounter at the Etihad Stadium a "title decider".

Goals from Nikica Jelavic and Steven Pienaar secured a staggering 4-4 draw for Everton in the latest of a sequence of amazing results this season, which now mean United go to Manchester City knowing if they lose they will surrender the initiative completely.

"Yes, definitely," said Ferguson, when asked if it was the most important derby he has known. "We've given them the initiative, there is no doubt about that. It makes the game at the Etihad a really important game. A decider really."
