Man City vs Man United

Manchester United and Manchester City faced off on Sunday afternoon in the weekend’s marquee Premier League clash.

The two sides, of course, headed into the meeting at the Etihad in very contrasting form.

And with the latest set of international friendlies taking place later this month, the 25-year-old has most certainly made a case that he should be handed an England call-up for the first time since 2018.
