This may not quite be a must-win game for under-fire manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but it’s definitely a must-not-lose fixture. After a 5-0 humiliation by arch-rivals Liverpool in their own stadium, Manchester United have bounced back well. A thumping 0-3 victory over Tottenham was followed by a respectable draw against Atalanta in the Champions League courtesy of a last-minute Cristiano Ronaldo equalizer. Nevertheless, Ole isn’t out of the firing line just yet.

The former Manchester United player turned head coach will still be feeling the heat and another embarrassing defeat to a rival will surely see the pressure on his position intensify further. His Red Devils side will be comforted by having a strong recent record against their noisy neighbors; they’ve not lost to the blue side of Manchester in the top flight since April 2019.

Unfortunately, United are still struggling with injuries to key defensive players. Both Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof will miss the derby due to injury, and Paul Pogba will serve the second match of his three-game ban for a red card picked up against Liverpool. What’s more, Edinson Cavani has also picked up an injury and won’t play here. Otherwise, Ole has a full squad to choose from and will almost certainly look to Ronaldo to provide the attacking spark required in order to combat this Manchester City side.

However, the reigning Premier League champions are far from unbeatable. Last weekend saw an unexpected 0-2 defeat at home to Crystal Palace, with Aymeric Laporte picking up a suspension in the process. It was a bad day at the office for Pep Guardiola, which is something he’s not used to at the helm of one of the world’s richest clubs.

City will also be without Ferran Torres as he’s still carrying an injury picked up while on international duty. It should be noted that Manchester City bounced back from their own disappointing result with a comfortable 4-1 midweek victory over Club Bruges in the Champions League. That comfortable win will have got some confidence back in the team ahead of this massive fixture.

Surprisingly, Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez both drop to the bench here, while Kevin de Bruyne, Ruben Dias and Gabriel Jesus are all recalled.
