Watch the Premier League 2 derby for free

Manchester United face neighbours City at home in Premier League 2 on Monday night (19:00 GMT kick-off).

Fans can attend the derby for free by purchasing an e-ticket via the Leigh Sports Village website.

The game cannot be shown live on MUTV due to broadcasting restrictions but we will be publishing short highlights, as Travis Binnion's side are back in action, following the postponement of the away fixture at Southampton due to a waterlogged pitch.

After the January transfer window, squad selection becomes a little different for the coach due to player availability but Travis Binnion has explained how a collaborative process is ensuring the best for everybody at Carrington.

Travis Binnion discusses the Academy in our latest interview.

"So myself, Darren Fletcher, Mitchell [van der Gaag], Tommy Lee with Richard Hartis," Binnion told us. "They are probably the five people that are involved with it the most.

"Then those conversations have a knock-on to our conversations for the Under-21s and Under-18s.

"For example, this morning, we had boys training at loan clubs, boys training with the first team, schoolboys in on half-term. So, literally, 21 players, that's all our players, when you take the injuries out of it, they've trained as one group. There is far more learning in that, than when it's eight older ones there or 12 younger ones there.

"The coaches planning, the coaches working together is really important as well. It's healthy from top to, I don't want to say bottom, but first-team level right the way through to the Under-16s and Under-15s, the relationships are in place."

The Under-21s' last outing in the league was a 4-2 victory over Norwich City at Old Trafford, when Sam Mather scored all four goals.

There is another game at the Theatre of Dreams planned for Friday 12 April, when Liverpool provide the opposition.
