Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed it would be one of Manchester United's best ever results if they were to beat Manchester City on Sunday.

Although United head to the Etihad Stadium three points clear of their neighbours, who were dumped out of Europe altogether on Tuesday, Ferguson is adopting a cautious approach. In his programme notes ahead of Wednesday night's 1-0 defeat to CFR Cluj Ferguson outlined his belief that both sides may opt to play safe.

"If we win [on Sunday] it will be one of our best ever results," Ferguson told MUTV.
