Man United vs Man City

Manchester United host rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford on Wednesday night in a derby.

Concise News reports that Pep Guardiola crosses town needing a victory to keep the Premier League title race in his side’s hands. Lose or draw and it will be an advantage to Liverpool as the battle intensifies for the top crown.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a response on his mind after watching his team surrender unacceptably to Everton on Sunday.

His side should have all the motivation they need – though in what promises to be an enthralling meeting.

Here’s everything you need to know:
