All you need to know about this weekend’s Manchester derby at Old Trafford

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is bidding to become the first Manchester United manager to complete an impressive league double over rivals Manchester City since Sir Alex Ferguson, who last achieved the feat in the 2009/10 season.

That task won't come easy as Pep Guardiola's team have won on each of their last three league visits to Old Trafford – and another win for the away side on Sunday would see them become the first team to win four in a row away to United since City themselves won five consecutive games between 1968 and 1972.

United survived a late scare in their last Premier League outing as VAR referee Jon Moss adjudged Gylfi Sigurdsson to be offside, ruling out what Everton thought was a last minute winner and meaning the Red Devils left Goodison Park with a hard-fought point.

On the same day, City bagged their first trophy of the season , beating Aston Villa 2-1 in the Carabao Cup final to claim their third successive EFL Cup triumph.

But attention now turns back to the Premier League, where Guardiola's men find themselves 22 points behind league leaders Liverpool .
