After this week there will be a new notch at the top of the Anticipation Scale. Yes, above even No. 10: Awaiting the new series of The Kardashians. If the needle gets anywhere near No. 11: April 2012 Manchester Derby again, bystanders will have to be doused with cold water for their own safety.

Three points separate Manchester City and Manchester United with three games of the season remaining: a win on home turf will put City top on goal difference, while any other result will leave United in the box seat. Sir Alex Ferguson says you have to be a masochist to enjoy this late season tension; join me on Monday for live coverage from 2.30 p.m. ET, and I promise we'll have a safeword.
