One of the best matches of the Premier League season is nearly upon us as Manchester United face Manchester City and we have all the information you need to know about this huge match ahead of kick off.
The Manchester derby is one of the first fixtures everyone looks for when they are announced, and both sides need a win to not just move up the table, but also to have bragging rights over their fierce rivals.
The Red Devils managed to thrash Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 on the weekend to get over being battered 5-0 by Liverpool. Meanwhile Manchester City were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s career at United is still under threat, and a poor result against Pep Guardiola’s Citizens could see him get the sack.
The two sides will face each other on Saturday 6th November 2021 at Old Trafford, and it is the early kick off.
