It is the fixture that we have all been waiting for as the two Manchester clubs face off on Sunday. Neutrals will be hoping that United can continue their impressive home form to at least make the title race something more than a procession, while Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking for a record-equalling 14th successive Premier League win. The fact that United do not have Paul Pogba available due to suspension might just be the thing that goes against them as City go on to break another record.

October 2011 was certainly a Manchester derby to forget for Sir Alex Ferguson as his United side were hit for six by their noisy neighbours City. A game that was not only remembered because of the scoreline but also for Mario Balotell’s infamous ‘Why Always Me’ celebration. Roberto Mancini’s men would later go on to win the Premier League that season in the most dramatic of fashions.
