Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester City

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's blockbuster derby with Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Manchester United will be expecting a response in arguably the biggest game of the Premier League season so far when they welcome local rivals and title chasers Manchester City to Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were humiliated at Goodison Park on Sunday as Everton ran riot with a 4-0 drubbing, making it back-to-back defeats during which time United have shipped seven goals without scoring.

Indeed, it is now six losses from their last eight outings across all competitions ahead of Wednesday's derby, which could prove to be a pivotal contest in the top-four race as well as the title race.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for United ahead of the showdown.
