Manchester Derby Will Decide Who Finishes Higher
It’s Manchester United v Manchester City for the fourth time this season, as the two rivals once again go head-to-head in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
United currently boast the bragging rights for the season with two wins to one, but they sit 15 points behind Sunday’s visitors in the Premier League table and know that anything other than a victory could harm their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Both teams have injury doubts hanging over key players ahead of Sunday’s contest, with Kevin De Bruyne and Harry Maguire both facing a race to be fit in time.
A number of other players are expected to return to the starting XI after sitting out on Thursday, although injury doubts persist over Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.
Solskjaer is hopeful of having all three available for the match, but Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba remain sidelined with this derby coming just too soon for the latter, who is due to return to first-team training next week.
Man City appear to be hitting form at just the right time having won their last five games but their focus will revert to Premier League action after a run of three cup matches.
Man Utd have improved as of late, but this is a stiff test for them and the visitors should be able to earn at least a point as a minimum.
