Man United were 2-1 winners at the Etihad in December the last time these two teams met in the Premier League.

That match saw Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial get the goals for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side while Nicolas Otamendi netted what would be a consolation for City. That result means United are in line to complete a Manchester derby double - a feat they haven't pulled off since the days of SIr Alex Ferguson during the 2009/10 season.

As well as losing to their local rivals, that defeat dealt City arguably a mortal blow in their bid to retain their Premier League title and they'll be out to avoid a similar derby disappointment on Saturday. Following testing times for both teams earlier in the campaign, the two rivals are now both enjoying great form, with both sides notching up professional wins over tricky Championship opposition in their respective FA Cup matches in midweek. Talented youngster Phil Foden looks to have earned himself a start for City amid doubts over Kevin De Bruyne's fitness, while Aaaron Wan-Bissaka and Welsh wing wizard Daniel James could both be available for United.
