City duo of Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake will miss out on account of injuries, with a late call to be taken on the fitness of Zack Steffen and Cole Palmer.

United are boosted by the return of Edinson Cavani who has attended full training, besides midfielder Scott Mc Tominay who has recovered from his illness.

  • Manchester City are looking to complete the league double over Man Utd for just the second time under manager Pep Guardiola, having previously done so in 2018-19.

  • Man City’s Riyad Mahrez has been involved in nine goals in his last eight Premier League appearances, scoring six and assisting three. However, against no side has the Algerian faced more in the competition without scoring than Manchester United (11).
  • Man City’s Raheem Sterling is still yet to score in 18 Premier League appearances against Manchester United – there are six other opponents Sterling has failed to score against in the competition, facing them 16 times in total combined.
