Ahead of our last international break of 2021, the English Premier League has presented us with a mouth-watering derby that comes to us when the time feels right for the drama it will inevitably bring. We’ll have a break to digest everything in the game, but the fallout from Saturday’s Manchester derby is bound to last long into next week regardless of the result.
The season has been building to this point, it seems. The mood on either side of the rivalry could not be more contrary, and everything is poised for the big-ticket hype that will surround the match. And there are some other great contests to loo forward to as well!
We begin at the Theatre of Dreams, in what will be a massive game for these two proud clubs and the Premier League as a whole. Here we go!
