Manchester United will tested by their mini rival Manchester City in Derby this afternoon in the Premier League.
The Red Devils started this season in an unconvincing manner, having already lost four games in the league. But have recorded three successive dramatic wins. United won both Brentford and Sheffield United with 2-1 score lines and beat Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League group stage with a dramatic 1-0 victory.
The Premier League champion, City on the other hand has also lost twice –back-to-back defeats to Wolves and Arsenal.
The United is just six points behind City in the league table and will be hoping to close the gaps. Pep Guardiola’s men are looking to reshape their momentum after recovering from a wobble of their own before the international break, They will work to return to the top of the table.
Pep Guardiola has a strong record in this fixture, having won seven out of his 14 Premier League games against United.
Hence, a win for any of the clubs be it United or City at Old Trafford will be a major boost for their premier league campaign, as they seek to close up with the teams who are setting the pace on the league.
