Manchester City face bitter rivals Manchester United seeking to reassert their lead over Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title. Liverpool maintained the pressure on City by beating West Ham 1-0 on Saturday to close the gap at the top to three points.
With Liverpool right behind them, City will be particularly focused for the 187th Manchester derby and a clash between neighbours that could go either way. Pep Guardiola’s 11 derbies with Ralf Rangnick’s predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ended five wins apiece with one draw.
City have asserted their supremacy in Manchester in the nine years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired but United will be hoping to turn the tables on their rivals at the Etihad.
