Matchday 11 of the English Premier League brings with it a heavyweight match as Manchester United host Manchester City at Old Trafford.

United have only won once in their last five matches and the pressure is on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he aims to better their fifth-place standing on the table.

Their city rivals are in third place with 20 points, five behind league leaders Chelsea.

United have taken just one point from their last three home games in the Premier League – scoring a solitary goal in that miserable streak.

Despite posting two EFL Cup wins against their rivals in recent years, City are winless in four Premier League Manchester derbies – failing to score in any of their last three.
