The hype is nearly over and the talking is about to stop. Manchester City host Manchester United on Monday in what is a pivotal Premier League match in the title race.
Should City win, they will go above United on goal difference, when less than three weeks ago they were eight points behind the champions.
If United beat City again at the Etihad Stadium (they won 3-2 in the FA Cup in January) they will go six points clear with just two games remaining of the league season.
Whether it'll be simply red or a blue Monday, here's a great gallery of City-United clashes down the years ahead of tonight's massive game.
