Man United Team News

For United, there will be no Paul Pogba, Juan Mata or Phil Jones as the trio remains in the treatment room for another matchday.

There will be late fitness tests for Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial, neither of whom featured in Ole's squad for their 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Victor Lindelof was on the bench for that goalless draw at Selhurst Park, and the Swede could be in line for a recall to the starting eleven on Sunday.

David De Gea missed Wednesday's fixture due to personal reasons, with it still unclear whether he will be back with the squad in time for the hotly anticipated clash.

Man City Team News

Pep Guardiola will have a near full-strength squad to select from for tomorrow's clash, with only long-term injury absence Nathan Ake unavailable for selection.

Third Meeting of the Season

It is the third time that the two sides have met this season, with the two playing out a dour stalemate at Old Trafford back in December.

City got the better of their fierce rivals in the Carabao Cup the last time the two sides met though.

Goals from John Stones and Fernandinho secured City's passage to yet another League Cup final.

United have fared well at the Etihad in recent times though, winning the last two clashes between the two on City's home turf.

Manchester United: Form Guide

Things haven't been so easy for United in recent weeks, with the heavily congested fixture schedule seemingly taking its toll on Ole's men.

That said, United are on a 10 match unbeaten run, though they have failed to score in their last three.

The Reds are undefeated in their last 20 road matches in the Premier League, but they come up against their toughest task of the season today.

Manchester City: Form Guide

As we've previously mentioned, City have been unstoppable in recent weeks.

Pep's men have won 21 in a row in all competitions, with their most recent victory coming here at the Etihad on Tuesday night, when they saw off a stubborn Wolves outfit by four goals to one.

Manchester Dominance

Today's fixture sees first take on second, though there is little importance in terms of a title race in this one.

Manchester City - on the back of a record-breaking 21 wins in a row in all competitions - lead their neighbours by a modest 14 points ahead of kick-off.

Manchester United will be looking for a crucial three points in their quest for Champions League football, with recent results dragging Ole's men back into a top-four battle.
