Scoring in the derby 'better than sex' - Sinclair

Trevor Sinclair thinks scoring in a Manchester derby is better than sex.

The former England winger is expected to line up for City against United in tomorrow's eagerly-awaited Eastlands showdown, with the Blues looking to record their third win in four outings against the old enemy on home soil.

Although Sir Alex Ferguson has previously claimed he regards Liverpool as United's major north-west rivals, the intense nature of the rivalry between Manchester's big two will ensure a crackling atmosphere.

And for Sinclair, Manchester born and bred and a lifelong fan of the Blues, the raw emotion of derby day is the ultimate experience.

'Scoring in a derby is better than sex,' Sinclair told the Manchester Evening News.

'When I got a goal in the 4-1 win at our place (in March 2004), I just remember taking my shirt off and swinging it round my head. I would love to repeat that.

'There is a great atmosphere on derby day. When you are warming up you can feel the tension, the expectation and the excitement building up in the stadium.'

Sinclair could end up facing United new boy Patrice Evra if Ferguson opts to hand the £5million arrival from Monaco his debut, while City's loan signing Albert Riera is also pencilled in for his first Blues' appearance.
