Manchester United Under-21s are set to take on local rivals Manchester City on Sunday lunchtime, with our Premier League 2 clash live on MUTV.

As the Leicester City fixture was postponed, the young Reds were last in action against Chelsea 11 days ago, losing 3-1 at Leigh Sports Village, despite a good performance.

Joe Hugill was on target in the defeat to the Blues, with the 19-year-old having now found the net nine times for Mark Dempsey's side this season, in addition to getting off the mark for Altrincham, against York City, as part of his youth loan move.

Ahead of the upcoming clash this weekend, here's all the information you need...


The match is set to take place at Manchester City's Academy Stadium at the Etihad Campus, with the game, as mentioned, live on MUTV on Sunday.

Kick-off is set for 12:00 GMT and proceedings will also be shown live in the United App, allowing you to follow the Reds from your mobile device, wherever you are.

United are currently seventh in Premier League 2, having suffered just one defeat since the turn of the calendar year domestically.

Hopefully, our side will still be full of confidence heading into Sunday's derby clash, having found the net 16 times in our last eight games in all competitions.
