Watch two minutes of exciting action from the Reds' latest Champions League outing...


The Reds have recorded three victories in a row during October, following Tuesday's victory over Copenhagen in Europe.

United will be hoping to end the month in style and continue our winning streak, with a busy schedule in November fast approaching. Next month sees Ten Hag's men play six games in three different competitions. 

Despite a tricky spell of three defeats in five games over recent weeks, Pep Guardiola's side have returned to winning ways.

On Wednesday, City recorded a 3-1 win away to Young Boys in the Champions League, and they defeated Brighton 2-1 in their last domestic outing.

Manchester City defeated us 2-1 in the FA Cup final in June, with the teams sharing the spoils in the Premier League with a win each.

The last time City visited Old Trafford, Ten Hag's team came from behind to record a memorable win. Bruno Fernandes - who also notched in the FA Cup final - drew United level at the Theatre of Dreams before Marcus Rashford struck to seal the three points and bragging rights for the Red side of Manchester.

Will we see more of the same this Sunday?
