Manchester City was placed at 3rd position. They made 32 points in the table. They made 43 goals and 29 assists. While Manchester United was placed at 6th position. They made 21 points in the table. They made 21 goals and 15 assists.Both teams warmed up for the derby with impressive wins in midweek as City beat Burnley and United overcame Spurs.
Gabriel Jesus was in top form scoring two goals and he could easily have had a hat-trick as he deputises for the injured Sergio Aguero. Gundogan is back from suspension and returns to the squad but Guardiola may be reluctant to make too many changes after that display.
Martial missed the game with a knock and he is rated doubtful so he faces a fitness test along with Pogba, Rojo and Matic who may return.
