The 44th Manchester derby in the Premier League is set to be an all important fixture not just for the both teams alone but for the  teams who are not giving up in winning the title and also the race for a top four finish in the Premier League table.

Manchester United who were having a poor start to the season during the Jose Mourinho tenure as manager of the club, parted ways with the Portuguese Manager Mid December after a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool.
The appointment of the Norwegian man and former striker for the club Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought back all lost hope for the club and the fans. Surprisingly recent performance from the team under the newly appointed permanent manger Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been so disappointing, and the latest is the 4-0 aggregate defeat to Spanish side Barcelona in the Quarter-Final fixture of the Champion League, and the horrendous 4-0 defeat to Everton on Easter Sunday in the Premier league and thereby putting their hopes for a top four finish into jeopardy.

Manchester City on the other hand, who has been eliminated from the Champions League by Tottenham Hotspur in a very intense Quarter-Final fixture but have been in a very good form in the Premier League,a team that has won 10 league games in a row, are aiming at nothing but to emerge champions of the league once again.
The both side meeting at the first leg fixture in November Last year under Manchester United former boss Jose Mourinho, Man city dominated the match and Pep Guardiola and his men won the match by 3 goals to 1.

Should United win or draw Man City in the return leg fixture Wednesday, it would leave the Citizens two or one point, depending on the full time result behind Jurgen Klopp's men Liverpool, a club chasing down United's record of 20 league title wins. With just three game left, a Man City win will be a major step to securing the Premier League title for another season.


Manchester United are set to be without Mid fielder Ander Herrera and defenders, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly due to injuries.

Man City will be without Kevin de Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy due to injuries.
