Manchester’s getting ready for one of the biggest games of the season as United host City in this weekend’s Premier League derby. Around £700 million worth of talents will be on display as the Reds take on their Blue rivals for not just bragging rights but a chance to go top of the table. Jose Mourinho is set to resume his long standing feud with Pep Guardiola which has added even more global appeal to this monumental clash.
City will be without Sergio Aguero who picked up a ban following his elbow on West Ham’s Winston Reid in the Blues last game, while Jose Mourinho faces a headache over whether to start Marcus Rashford. The teenager bagged a hat-trick for the England under 21 side midweek, to add to his late winner against Hull City for United in the Reds’ last league game.
The bookies are struggling to find much difference between the two sides, although most give United a slight edge, neither has emerged as a clear favourite.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has done his bit to stoke up the fires, criticising former boss Pep Guardiola – who managed him when the pair were at Barcelona. With both United and City on maximum points so far this season and Old Trafford set to be packed out, all the eyes of the world will be on Manchester from 12.30 this Saturday.
