Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking for a huge reaction from his side, following a lacklustre performance all across the pitch as United crumbled against Everton. Much has been made of the shambolic fallout of the 4-0 defeat which saw midfielder Nemanja Matic admit that he was to blame for the loss. Whilst Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also quick to apologise to the United fans.
Now the rumour mill is in overdrive on the future of several key United players with David de Gea, Paul Pogba & Romelu Lukaku all reportedly questioning their United futures if the side fails to make the Champions League this season. Although based purely on their performances on Sunday many United fans would be happy to see the back of these players in favour of a squad overhaul in the summer.
One thing that is certain is that Solskjaer needs to focus on the here and now, and look to left his side who have only managed one victory in their last five games in all competitions. With United in sixth place, a positive result would be a huge boost for the side heading into the run in although it would also help bitter rivals Liverpool in claiming a first league title in 28 years.
In team news, Luke Shaw is back in contention after serving his suspension against Everton. Whilst the trio Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia and Eric Bailly are all doubts through injury. Scott McTominay was the only United player who impressed on Sunday and the Scottish midfielder could replace Fred in the side.

As for Man City, a victory over Man United will see the Citizens return to the top of the table a point ahead of Liverpool, having played the same number of games as the Reds with four games left to play in the season. It cannot be underestimated how important this game is for Pep Guardiola’s side in their quest for winning back to back league titles.
Last time out, City edged out Tottenham thanks to an early header from teenager Phil Foden. After an epic Champions League battle against Spurs, which they ultimately lost on goal difference it felt like City did just enough at the weekend to get all three points. That trait, of course, is one of Champions and after missing out in Europe Manchester City will be confident of registering maximum points from their remaining games to win the title.
In team news, Kevin De Bruyne looks like to be ruled out for the remainder of the season after hobbling off against Spurs with a hamstring injury. This could mean that Phil Foden could keep his place in the side. Whilst the trio of David Silva, Vincent Kompany & Benjamin Mendy could all be pushing for a starting place at Old Trafford.
Manchester City Predicted Team
Ederson; Walker, Laporte, Stones, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, Gundogan, Foden; B. Silva, Aguero, Sterling
It certainly promises to be a fascinating Manchester derby, one which could have a significant say in the destination of the Premier League title. Follow all the action with beIN SPORTS.
