LONDON - Manchester City always seems to be second best in its own backyard, like a little brother overshadowed by his bigger and stronger sibling.
In England's third-largest city, Manchester United always seems to one-up City.
What happened when City won its most recent English league title, in 1968? United beat Benfica to win the European Cup, club soccer's most prestigious trophy.
And in the 2000-01 season, when the Sky Blues were promoted to the English Premier League, after four years in lower divisions? The Red Devils won the top flight for the 14th of its 19 league titles.
