We're Not Really Here

Gareth Barry, Michael Brown and Shaun Goater will be the guests on our live matchday show.

Cel Spellman will be hosting the show, which begins at 16:30 (UK), one hour before we kick-off against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

We’re Not Really Here is available to watch on all of our digital platforms and offers a City focused perspective to your pre-match build-up, with Barry, Brown and Goater sharing their thoughts and derby memories as we prepare for the big game.

The show resumes at half-time for a brief summary of the opening 45 minutes and, five minutes after the final whistle, we’ll be live for half an hour of post-match reaction.

Our guests will dissect the game and respond to the fans’ Man of the Match poll, questions, and comments, whilst we will also hear a player’s reaction and, time permitting, watch Guardiola’s post-match press conference.

Pep Guardiola preview

"There are a lot of games to play. We are in the beginning of the season. But it’s important to win and beat a big rival. Now is time to focus on the Premier League."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer preview

"Starting quickly is one thing and we want to start good. We have done well in last few games against City but there are loads of things we can do better.

"We really wanted to go through [in the Champions League] but we have to move on. It was a tight group decided by fine margins. Focus has been on this game and Manchester derby. That is the best game you can ask for."

Form guide

City come into the game on the back of a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions. We’ve won three of our last five outings in the Premier League and sit seventh in the table, with 18 points from ten games.

United are one point and one place above us and have won four consecutive games in the league.  However, they suffered a 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig in their previous fixture, which saw them knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage.

Last meeting

United were the victors when we travelled to Old Trafford in March for what proved to be our final game before the 2019/20 season was temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Anthony Martial fired the visitors into a first half lead and Scott McTominay sealed the host’s win when he scored from distance in the dying seconds.
