*WATCH* Man City vs Man United – Manchester derby Prediction & Preview: Lineups, injury news, where to watch, TV times, kick-off time, news & more
With the points meaning a lot more to one side of the city, will we see the usual smoke and fire?
With an EFL Cup under their belt, Manchester City can smell blood.
With Liverpool faltering, City are looking to show their dominance, and even though the Premier League title is gone, Pep Guardiola’s men are looking to flex their muscles in every coming match.
As for Manchester United, they too are in fine form.
The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions and did actually beat their rivals in the EFL Cup semi-final second leg 1-0, but couldn’t overturn the 3-1 first-leg defeat.
Manchester United predicted lineup
Manchester United injury news
The big two men on the sidelines for Manchester United remain Paul Pogba (ankle) and Marcus Rashford (back).
Harry Maguire (ankle) missed the 3-0 FA Cup win over Derby County, but the United captain is expected to return.
It has emerged Aaron Wan-Bissaka (back) is also doubtful, with Diogo Dalot a like-for-like replacement.
It’s anyone’s guess as to what formation Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will play, with the manager going for a 4-4-2 diamond against Everton last weekend.
He could return to a 4-2-3-1, as he did against Derby, with Andreas Pereira or Juan Mata playing on the flanks, with Daniel James (knock) set to be back in the frame.
