Manchester City will welcome Manchester United on Sunday at Etihad Stadium, and a first taste of derby action for interim boss Ralf Rangnick.
In previous meeting, City dominated United in the reverse fixture as they won 2-0 at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was given his marching orders just two weeks later, and Rangnick was appointed as interim boss after Michael Carrick stepped in on a temporary basis.
However, despite Solskjaer’s disappointing result against City earlier in the season, Rangnick can still draw a lot of inspiration from his predecessor ahead of Sunday’s derby.
Solskjaer may not have achieved silverware during his time in charge at United, but he did leave with a very respectable statistic to his name, as the Norwegian maintained a 100 per cent record at the Etihad Stadium.
In each of his three wins against City as United manager, Solskjaer’s side struck early, with only one of the five goals scored at the Etihad coming in the second half of the match.
Even the latest that his United side left it was the 50th minute, as Luke Shaw made it 2-0 against City at the end of last season after Bruno Fernandes scored inside the first 120 seconds of the game.
City may be in fine form, but due to United fantastic record against their rival, it’s likely the Red Devil’s will win today’s fixture at Etihad Stadium.
