Manchester United will head to Etihad Stadium to take on cross-town rivals Manchester City in a crucial game.
Both clubs are separated by just four points in the league table, and this game could prove to be influential in the race for top-four.
The Red Devils have received a huge boost ahead of the derby after City defensive duo Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi suffered injuries in the Champions League encounter with PSV.
Both players are set to miss out on Sunday’s derby and United fans couldn’t be happier with the news.
