Gary Neville WILL commentate on Manchester derby, despite United criticism

However, despite his blistering comments in both commentary and post-match punditry, Neville - who won eight Premier League titles with United - will be calling the crunch match at Old Trafford alongside Martin Tyler. These are the same players who threw Mourinho under the boss and they will do the same to Ole. We spoke about leaders and characters, I just don't think they have enough of them.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp joked he would not offer any advice to Manchester United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as there had been no support from their arch-rivals during the Reds' troubled period. Those rumours have only intensified since the player's agent, Mino Raiola, reportedly cancelled a meeting with club officials last week, leaving United's directors none the wiser as to whether the midfielder will see out the rest of his contract or ask to leave.

'In the second part of the season, we played against the big six away and had only Tottenham at home, ' Sarri said.

There are fears at United the 28-year-old will get to the French giants when they pile the pressure on with a bid at the end of the season.

Solskjaer's side have a chance to return to the Premier League top four with a win.

Manchester United made a positive start and managed to keep the Citizens at bay until half-time before the defending champions made the breakthrough.

Everotn will not want to lose Richarlison so soon after signing him, meaning United will surely have their work cut out to bring such a deal to fruition.

United go into Sunday's clash three points behind Chelsea in the race for Champions League qualification and with the need for a turnaround in form becoming ever more desperate.

"For months, it was one game in hand [over Manchester City for us]", Klopp said in a press conference.

Solskjaer added: "Of course, we want to get into the top four".

The Spaniard knows United's under-performing stars could suddenly hit form as Solskjaer's team battle to finish in the top four after a disappointing recent run.
