Manchester City v Manchester United: match preview | Premier League


Pep Guardiola’s 11 derbies with Ralf Rangnick’s predecessor, Ole Gunnar Solskjær, ended five wins apiece with one draw. Considering Manchester City’s supremacy this was a fair return from the Norwegian and can offer succour to Manchester United. City, though, have Liverpool right behind them as they seek to defend the title so will be particularly focused. Forget form – it may be a cliche but is still true: as this is a clash between neighbours the 187th staging of the fixture could go either way. Jamie Jackson
