Aymeric Laporte, meanwhile, has returned to training following knee surgery in the summer, although this weekend’s fixture will likely come too soon.

Manchester City already look in full flow this season, though who’s to say the disruption of an international break could hamper that. Manchester United have somewhat shaken off a dismal start, though their showings in the Europa League have been far from convincing.

Erling Haaland has scored in all but one game so far, and you wouldn’t bet against him adding to his record-breaking form on Sunday, in what will be his first Manchester derby.
