The Manchester Derby is always an exciting occasion and the summer signings from both teams only add to that. How will the likes of Lisandro Martinez and Erling Harland fare in this environment?
And what about new Man Utd boss Eric ten Hag? He faces selection dilemmas, most notably over Harry Maguire following his mistakes for England against Germany and Cristiano Ronaldo. Anthony Martial is unavailable through injury, with Marcus Rashford and Donny van de Beek also doubts.
Ten Hag’s opposite number, Pep Guardiola, is likely to still be without Aymeric Laporte, although the Spanish defender has now returned to training following his injury. John Stones picked up an injury on England duty and will miss out, as will midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
Man City come into the game in excellent form at the Etihad. They have won their last 7 Premier League home matches. A win on Sunday would give them their third consecutive league win over their neighbours. The visitors are in good form though. Man Utd have won their last 4 Premier League games, including notable wins over Liverpool and Arsenal. They had lost four league games in a row before then.
Man City go into the weekend second, ahead of Tottenham on goal difference and behind Arsenal by just 1 point. Depending on the result of Saturday’s North London Derby, City could be top of the league by the end of the weekend. Beating local rivals will be the main motivation though.
Can they do that in front of their own fans, or will it be the Red half of the city celebrating full time? Find out by watching the Man City vs Man Utd live stream.
