Get your popcorn ready. This one is going to be good.
Manchester United and Manchester City face off on Saturday at City of Manchester Stadium in another edition of the Manchester Derby. The rivalry had long been dominated by United, but City have had the upper hand in recent years, going 10-4-2 against the Red Devils over their last 16 encounters.
City have been in great form as of late, with their sole loss over their last 11 matches coming on the road at first-place Liverpool. The Citizens lead the Premier League with 43 goals scored, and are tied with Leicester City for the best goal differential in the Prem. With 32 points, City comfortably sit in third place in the league table.
United, meanwhile, have been a bit inconsistent, but are coming off an impressive 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday. Marcus Rashford scored both goals in that victory, and has now scored seven goals over Man United's last seven games. With 21 points, the Red Devils currently are in sixth place in the Prem standings, two back of Wolverhampton and eight behind Chelsea in fourth.

With the end of the winter transfer window looming, every Tottenham Hotspur (8-7-8; 31 points) match could be Christian Eriksen's last.
Spurs manager José Mourinho confirmed the Danish midfielder will be in the squad Wednesday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Norwich City (4-5-14; 17 points), but how much longer is anyone's guess. Eriksen has been linked to a move with Inter Milan, and the club's sporting director said Monday that the Italian giants have submitted a bid. Eriksen reportedly turned down a contract extension with Spurs earlier this season, and the clock is ticking on Tottenham's ability to get any kind of transfer fee for him, as his contract is set to run out this summer.
Norwich frustrated Tottenham in a 2-2 draw at Carrow Road on Dec. 28, twice taking the lead over Spurs. The Canaries got a big boost in their quest to avoid relegation Saturday, beating fellow cellar-dwellers Bournemouth at Carrow Road. They're still six points from safety, though, so Wednesday's match firmly is in must-win territory.

Three days after losing at Anfield to rival Liverpool, fifth-place Manchester United (9-7-7; 34 points) can gain ground in the race for UEFA Champions League qualification Wednesday at Old Trafford.
United can move three points back of fourth in the Premier League if they beat Burnley (8-3-12; 27 points) at the Theatre of Dreams, thanks to Chelsea's draw with Arsenal on Monday. The Clarets will test the Red Devils, though, as Burnley are coming off of a 2-1 comeback win over Leicester City.
Manchester United will again be without injured forward Marcus Rashford, who has a stress fracture in his back. Rashford's injury leaves United dangerously thin up front, yet Burnely resorted to a patchwork attacking group against Leicester in the absence of Ashley Barnes (hernia) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (thigh). In other words, don't be surprised if both sides struggle for goals Tuesday.
