Manchester City looks unbeatable at the moment, but it’s up to Manchester United to keep picking up points while hoping for a slip-up from our noisy neighbours.
Next up, a game against West Bromwich Albion, which will not be easy. Jose Mourinho’s men have to go to the Midlands and win, there are no two-ways about it.
The starting line-up is in, with Mourinho naming a strong team as per usual.

David de Gea will start, with the now-usual full-back pairing of Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young. It’s great to have Phil Jones back fit and playing again. He’ll partner Chris Smalling.
Nemanja Matic has been the heartbeat of our midfield all season and we’ll need another excellent display from him again today. Ander Herrera will start, with Paul Pogba serving the last game of his suspension.
The front four has changed with Juan Mata coming into the team. Jesse Lingard continues, with Marcus Rashford starting in place of Anthony Martial. Romelu Lukaku continues to lead the line.
