TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Manchester United will visit the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City in the 28th Premier League match on Sunday, 6 March 2022. The derby will be a crucial match for City considering that they are now 6 points away from Liverpool in the standings.
City is still firmly at the top of the Premier League standings with 66 points. Meanwhile, Manchester United is currently in fourth place with 47 points.
Internally at Manchester United, there is a breath of fresh air after midfielder Scott McTominay was seen training with his team-mates at Carrington on Thursday. After showing an aggressive display when Manchester United beat Leeds United 4-2, he had to miss matches against Atletico Madrid and Watford.
United manager Ralf Rangnick hopes McTominay can play in the derby later. The Scottish player had an important role when Manchester United hosted City in the 2020 season. He impressed by scoring the closing goal in the 2-0 win over Manchester City.
Next up, Harry Maguire and Jadon Sancho. When United were held to a goalless draw by Watford on Saturday last week, both players started the game from the bench. Maguire and Sancho seem to be trying hard to be Rangnick’s starter or main choice. Then in the training session Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw were also present.
