Man City vs Man United live updates
Erik ten Hag worked with Pep Guardiola for two seasons at Bayern Munich when the Manchester United manager was in charge of Bayern Munich II while the Manchester City boss was head coach of the first team.
Those in the ranks at Bayern Munich at the time have said the two managers are similar in style so today's game will be an interesting match to say the least.
Manchester City have often dominated possession in the past at the Etihad with United hitting their opponents on the counter thanks to the pace of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Daniel James.
The latter two players have since departed while Rashford and Martial have just returned from injury. So will Ten Hag set his side up to sit back and counter or will he hope his side can get on the ball a lot more? The Dutchman has a lot to ponder going into the first Manchester derby of the season.
Read how similar the managerial duo really are.
