Manchester City make the short trip to Old Trafford on Saturday knowing a win will take them above Manchester United in the Premier League table.
Manchester United recovered from a goal down to beat West Ham last time out in the league, with Paul Pogba scoring his first of the season in the comeback.
They were beaten 3-2 by RB Leipzig on Tuesday though, with defeat meaning they will drop into the Europa League.
Manchester City’s spot in the last 16 of the Champions League was already secured prior to their 3-0 win over Marseille.
Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne were among the goals as they eased past Fulham last weekend.
Premier League form: Manchester United W4 D0 L1; Manchester City W3 D1 L1

Martial and Edinson Cavani missed the midweek trip to Germany and both are doubts again.
Luke Shaw is back from injury; however Alex Telles should keep his spot in the team.
Sergio Aguero will be fit enough for a return to the bench on Saturday, meaning Gabriel Jesus will continue up tops.
John Stones appears to be in favour at the moment, meaning Aymeric Laporte could be on the bench once again.
