Manchester City and Manchester United are set to lock horns with each other in a mouth-watering Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon at the Etihad Stadium.
Pep Guardiola’s side are currently in spectacular form, with their winning run reaching an incredible 21 games in all competitions.
They are 12 points clear at the top of the table, having registered 20 victories this campaign as far.
It looks that only a big collapse from City could stop them now from winning the Premier League title this season.
The Cityzens were at their destructive best in the 4-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday night, with Gabriel Jesus giving a standout performance by scoring twice.
Meanwhile, Manchester United suffered a disappointing goalless draw against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night and will now hope to do better at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are currently third in the table, having a game in hand over second-placed Leicester City.
They looked good contenders for the league title at the start of the year but now have endured so many disappointing draws as to leave with a very little chance.
Pep Guardiola does not have any injury issues for the Sunday match, with Nathan Ake also making himself available after recovering from a muscular problem.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer will not have the services of Phil Jones, Juan Mata, and Paul Pogba due to injuries. While David de Gea will also miss as he has headed to his country for the birth of his first child.
