⚔️ Players to do the unthinkable and represent both Manchester clubs

Not many footballers have been brave enough to cross from blue to red, or red to blue, in the football-mad parish of Manchester. 

You'll struggle to find Red Devils supporters that have found it in their hearts to forgive Carlos Tevez after he swapped Old Trafford for the Etihad Stadium back in 2009. 12 years on, football fans don't forget. 

The combative Argentine wasn't at United for long but he burned bright in a highly-successful stint under Sir Alex Ferguson. He was one-third of a fearsome attacking unit at Old Trafford, forming a trident alongside Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 2007-08 season culminated in Premier League and Champions League glory for United and Tevez was at the heart of it. Tevez won six major honours with Fergie in total.  

His move to the Etihad Stadium proved to be a fruitful one too - he made 148 appearances for City, scoring 73 goals and winning the FA Cup in 2011 and Premier League in 2012. Tevez made himself a bona fide legend on Eastlands. After turning out for the Red Devils before, that's quite some achievement. 

🔵🔴 Players to have crossed the Manchester divide:

The latest instalment of the Manchester Derby sees City and United clash for the 152nd time in the English top-flight. The hosts can open up an almost unassailable 17-point lead with a win over the old enemy.

Can Pep's red-hot sky blues claim a 16th consecutive Premier League victory and a 21st on the bounce in all competitions?
