For all Manchester City‘s recent issues, they go into Sunday’s derby in ruder health than their neighbours and victory at the Etihad Stadium would be doubly satisfying, as Louis van Gaal takes the Reds back to their David Moyes level.

Manuel Pellegrini‘s press conference is later today, where he will doubtless update the media on Vincent Kompany‘s injury. United have not beaten City with the Belgian on the pitch since the 2011 Community Shield.
