We also look at a couple of our players’ social media post to see how they’re feeling ahead of the match.

First up, fan Jim Taylor is making the rather long trip from Philadelphia, USA, to make sure he’s at the derby! Now that’s commitment!

Also in Philadelphia, our very own Moonbeam and Moonchester recruited a new mascot fan ahead of the derby – meet ‘Gritty’ to mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey team…

Meanwhile, John Dykes of Fox News Asia, eyes a tough test tomorrow, labelling us as “the team who can’t stop scoring”.

Over to the world of boxing now as boxer Oleksandr Usyk decided to don a City scarf around his neck at the weigh in before his fight against Tony Bellew.
