Match preview ✅
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to apologise to the club's fans for the Red Devils' abject performance in Sunday's 4-0 loss to Everton at Goodison Park. United have now lost six of their past eight games in all competitions. This was their fifth successive away defeat - for the first time since 1981 - and it leaves the club in tatters ahead of the Derby.
Manchester City made it 10 successive Premier League victories on Saturday as the Champions bounced back from their Champions League quarter-final exit against Tottenham with a 1-0 win over the same opposition. Teenager Phil Foden's first league goal after only five minutes ensured that City kept pace with title rivals Liverpool. Ederson made numerous crucial saves to help City win all three points, perhaps a sign of Champions is playing well beyond your best and still winning.
It will be a strange feeling for Liverpool fans to cheer on Manchester United tonight but that's where the title race stands. James Milner says he won't even be watching. The last three meetings between these rivals in the Premier League have produced a total of 12 goals, so expect fireworks.
Team news 🌟
Manchester United will make changes in defence after Phil Jones was forced off through injury in the loss at Everton. Ander Herrera is expected to be available after four weeks out with a thigh injury, while Luke Shaw returns from suspension.
Manchester City's key midfielder Kevin de Bruyne will miss the derby after sustaining a muscular problem last weekend and the rest of his season is also in doubt.
