Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is determined to play down the significance of Monday's derby clash with Manchester United even though Sir Alex Ferguson has already billed it as the Premier League title decider.

For both managers, it seems to be a premeditated decision to either hype or undermine the game knowing City faltered in March and the beginning of April when the pressure for them to be champions was at its most intense.

"The derby is always the game of the year," he said. "For the supporters, a derby is always a different game to the others. It is important for the city...But for us it will just be one more game, not because we fight for this or for that, and after it there are another two games, very tough games."
