Manchester United have got a significant boost ahead of their next local derby against Manchester City.

Manuel Akanji of Manchester City will miss the heavyweight clash next weekend after receiving two yellow cards against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Akanji hauled down winger Kaoru Mitoma to block a dangerous counter-attacking opportunity, earning him his first booking.

In injury time, he received his second yellow card of the match for an unnecessary pull on Fati in Brighton’s half.

Although the second yellow card was soft, the former Borussia Dortmund star should have done better.

Man United will be put to the test against their local rivals.

The Red Devils have had a difficult start to the season.

Many first-team players have already been injured this season, preventing Erik ten Hag from fielding his strongest lineup.

This season, they have already lost four of their nine Premier League games.

Man City, unlike Manchester United, is at the top of the league table.

Pep Guardiola’s team has also had a difficult season. The Cityzens had lost twice before the recent international break, but won all three points Wednesday against high-flying Brighton.

Rodri and John Stones’ return has strengthened City’s defense. Jeremy Doku is off to a good start in England and might cause issues on the left wing against Diogo Dalot.

Man United has struggled to score goals, but they must be at their best versus City.

Rasmus Hojlund has flashed some brilliance. He would be overjoyed if he scored his first Premier League goal against Manchester City.

Ten Hag is concerned about Marcus Rashford’s lack of urgency this season.

The Red Devils are unquestionably the underdogs in this massive match, but recent Manchester derbies have produced a few shocks.
