Live Manchester United v Manchester City | English Premier League | Derby
Time: 15:00 ET | 20 Cairo Local Time
Venue: Old Trafford
Referee: Andre Marriner (England)
Manchester United will do everything they can to stop Manchester City’s march towards the Premier League title. Manchester United are enduring a torrid run of form ahead of their crucial showdown with noisy neighbors Manchester City.
The Red Devils were trampled 4-0 by Everton on Sunday following a 3-0 humbling by Barcelona just days before. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s early impact has subsided, and United have now lost six of their last eight games in all competitions.
They remain in the fight for a Champions League place, but there’s more than just points at stake in the big derby game. Manchester City will return to the top of the Premier League table with three games to go if they topple United. However, Liverpool fans will be in the unique position of wanting fierce rivals United to win the game to put them in the driving seat for the title.
Man United vs. Man City preview:
Luke Shaw is available having missed United’s last three games with domestic and European bans.
Phil Jones is a doubt after hobbling off in Sunday’s 4-0 defeat at Everton but Ander Herrera, Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia are pushing to be available.
This will be the 160th league meeting between Manchester United and Manchester City; United have won 62, drawn 51 and lost 46 of the previous such games.
Manchester City have only lost one of their last seven league visits to Old Trafford (W5 D1), with current boss Pep Guardiola winning both of his Premier League games there by a 2-1 scoreline.
