Preview

Manchester United will look to keep the pressure on Chelsea for a top-four spot if they win their second Manchester derby of the season.

Manchester City come into this fixture after reaching the FA Cup quarter finals in midweek, just four days after winning the EFL Cup for a third consecutive time at Wembley.

Should be in for another cracking derby.

Team News

Man Utd’s Harry Maguire (ankle), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (back) and Daniel James (knock) are doubtful and will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s contest.

Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and Lee Grant remain sidelined.

A decision on Kevin De Bruyne’s availability will be made on Sunday and he should be in contention for Man City.

Leroy Sane continues to work his way towards full fitness, but is not ready.

Prediction

City and United come in to this game on relative high notes. I see City playing up to its level in the recent weeks and securing a win.

Manchester United 0-2 Manchester City
