Manchester United v Manchester City: match preview

Manchester United v Manchester City: match preview

Ole Gunnar Solskjær could really use a win in this 183rd Manchester derby after Tuesday’s Champions League exit. Yet Manchester United’s Premier League form is excellent, four successive wins and a home-and-away double over Manchester City in the league last season. But: Pep Guardiola’s side are performing formidably in Europe and domestically. So, as usual, this clash of storied neighbours could go either way. Jamie Jackson
