Pep Guardiola has an embarrassment of riches for Sunday’s Manchester derby, with a fully-fit Man City squad to choose from as they continue their romp towards the title. The return of defender Nathan Ake after a muscular problem this week means the Premier League leaders now have no players in the treatment room. It is a boost for quadruple-chasing City as they look to extend their 14-point advantage over second-placed United in the fixture at the Etihad Stadium.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would probably prefer a few more selection problems than he will have heading into tomorrow’s Manchester derby. Manchester United have drawn a blank in their last three games - all 0-0 draws - with the goals drying up of late. The absence of Paul Pogba has left United relying on Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford for inspiration, but Solskjaer’s key men have looked tired of late and could do with a rest - but they won’t get one this weekend.
Liverpool's defensive problems have once again worsened ahead of the visit of Fulham on Sunday with Ozan Kabak the latest to sustain an injury.

"Ozan had, after the game, a little problem," Jurgen Klopp told reporters.
Juventus must overturn a first-leg deficit to avoid a shock exit at the hands of Porto in the Champions League. A lacklustre showing in the first leg in Portugal gives the visitors a 2-1 advantage, though the Old Lady have hope through Federico Chiesa’s away goal. The last time Porto won away from home in the Champions League knockout stages was the year they won the competition, on 2002-03.
