Live analysis on Manchester United vs Manchester City! – By Joe Prince-Wright

Morning all! What a way to start the weekend. Manchester Derby. Red. Blue. Rivals colliding. Does it get much better than this? Probably not.

Anyway, the atmosphere is building at Old Trafford and kick off is just around the corner with tension building in Manchester, England.

Fun fact: the tension is building in Manchester, New Hampshire too. Whichever team wins, City Hall will be lit up in their colors and the locals are fired up. We spent time there earlier this week and Manchester, NH is split down the middle too. Red or Blue?

Paul Pogba remains suspended with a red card but Victor Lindelof starts after battling back to fitness. Mason Greenwood starts up top with Cristiano Ronaldo, as Edinson Cavani misses out.

Prediction

Derbies are notoriously difficult to predict but the absences of Pogba and Varane ask more of United than any missing City player. Kevin De Bruyne is due to break out and something tells us Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling will have something to say in this one. Manchester United 1-3 Man City.
