Manchester United will look to bounce back from this week’s humiliating Champions League exit when they host fierce rivals Manchester City in a mouthwatering Premier League tussle tonight.
The shock midweek defeat by RB Leipzig means the stakes have been raised even beyond usual levels for this home derby against their noisy neighbours – and their league form has given the Red Devils confidence.
Four successive league wins have pushed United from the lower depths of the table into seventh place, two spots above Pep Guardiola’s side, who are slowly beginning to tick.
Old Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are looking to win three successive Premier League games against City for the first time since 2010 and three points would put them into the top four, ahead of Sunday’s games, smoothing the waters somewhat for their under-fire manager..
💪 Up the Reds!
