First against second meet in the Premier League today in what will be the 185th Manchester derby in English football history.
Man City and Man United come into the derby side-by-side for the second time this season. Back in December, it was 8th and 9th the two sides occupied – but it’s safe to say that plenty has changed since then.
Solskjaer’s side climbed to the summit over the Christmas period, but since then City have gone on to build what looks like an insurmountable lead.
While United are unbeaten in their last three league games against City, three points on Sunday will still leave them with a huge gap to make up on City in the final fixtures of the campaign.
