File- Manchester City vs Manchester United
CAIRO – 7 December 2019: Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, started the war with their neighbors, Manchester City, before the Derby of Manchester at Etihad Stadium, the home of the blue side of the city.
Solskjaer revealed that Manchester United still the bigger team in the city despite City’s dominance over the English football in the recent years.
“At least we play every year now! It took many years before I played a Manchester derby myself. Of course Man City are a better team now than when I was playing.” The Norwegian manager said.
Manchester City want to keep their winning streak with the aim to close the gap with the league leaders, Liverpool.
City will miss their Argentinean striker, Sergio Aguero, for injury and Gabriel Jesus, who showed his class with two goals against Burnley, will start alongside Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne.
The Blues, who clinched back to back league titles, are struggling this season as they are third at the league and 11 points behind the league leaders, Liverpool.
The game starts on 7:30 PM.
