Manchester City host Manchester United on a crucial derby day in the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola’s side have bounced back from a draw against Chelsea with back-to-back 1-0 league victories, but produced a return to scoring form in midweek cup action with Erling Haaland powering a six-goal win over Luton.

Their cross-city rivals were rather less fluent in beating Nottingham Forest after defeat at Fulham last weekend appeared to again imperil Erik ten Hag.

It leaves the Old Trafford club sixth as they look to keep up with fellow Champions League place chasers Aston Villa and Tottenham.
