Date: Sunday 10 December 2017

Kick-off: 16.30 GMT (5.30pm Naija time)

Venue: Old Trafford

Competition: English Premier League

Previous clashes : Total = 175; Man Utd Wins = 75; Man City wins = 48; Draws = 52

Same Game last season: United suffered their only loss at Old Trafford, and last at Old Trafford till date.

Center Referee: Michael Oliver. The 32-year old has developed a reputation for giving United players red cards in big matches; Herrera vs Chelsea last season, Di Maria vs Arsenal, Smalling vs Man City in 2014/2015. ('Oga Mike', please we don't want that kind of rough play on Sunday oh).

1. Jose 'Uchenna' Mourinho's United side are currently on the longest unbeaten run at home in the Premier League(24 games - W14, D10, L0). Whether 'bad bele' people like it or not, that ministry must move forward on Sunday.

3. Our 'striker-in-chief', Romelu 'Timaya' Lukaku scored in both of Everton's league matches against City last season. (In Patience Jona's voice, 'Continue'!).

4. Jose 'Uchenna' Mourinho has won just 4 of his 19 managerial meetings with Pep Guardiola in all competitions(W4, L7, D8). (Please, wherever Pep dropped that 'Otumokpo', we cast and destroy!).

5. If City win this match, they will officially hold the record for the longest run of consecutive wins in English League history - 14 wins. ('Abeg oh', this record shall not be broken at Old Trafford, it is not our portion).
