Here we go. Manchester United host Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday, in the biggest match of the season thus far. United are hoping to make a dent in City’s eight point lead at the top of the table, while City will be hoping for anything other than a loss so that they can start crowning themselves champions-elect in December.

Both managers have kept their counsel with regards to formations and starting XIs, but Jose Mourinho is still up to his old tricks.
