The first Manchester derby of the season takes place on Sunday with the champions Manchester City travelling to Old Trafford.
Manchester United recorded two nervy victories in the last week, edging past Sheffield United thanks to a Diogo Dalot strike.
That was followed up by a 1-0 Champions League win at home to FC Copenhagen, with Andre Onana saving a last minute penalty.
Manchester City eased to a 3-1 win away at Young Boys in the same competition, with Erling Haaland scoring twice.
Haaland was among the scorers domestically as well as City edged past Brighton 2-1 to temporarily go top of the Premier League.

Casemiro has missed Manchester United’s last two matches but he should return to the XI here.
Harry Maguire has done well in recent matches and will likely continue ahead of Victor Lindelof.
Manuel Akanji was sent off in the win over Brighton last week and is suspended for the trip to Old Trafford.
Most of the side picks itself here, with the big call on the left-flank, with Jeremy Doku favourite to start ahead of Jack Grealish.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): Onana; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Reguilon; McTominay, Casemiro; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake, Gvardiol; Rodri, Silva; Foden, Alvarez, Doku; Haaland

His record in the away games against big opposition isn’t great, but it’s hard to look past the best striker in the league
