| Last Updated:


The Premier League have confirmed who will officiate Manchester United as they travel to face Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester United will seek revenge as they take on Manchester City in the Manchester derby following their Old Trafford meeting earlier this season.

Two goals from Erling Haaland and a further from Phil Foden saw Pep Guardiola‘s men secure a convincing victory over Erik ten Hag‘s team, with the sides now sitting 15 points apart in the league table.

“This period is very good. We are united,” Ten Hag said ahead of the tie. “We are in togetherness, and [we will] make a good gameplan. We have done it before against City and also, lately, against Liverpool, so we will prepare well.

“The players are ready for it and looking forward to it. I can smell it. I am around here and speak with the players, so we are really enjoying [it] and looking forward and excited.”

The Premier League have confirmed who will take charge of the fixture.

The Video Assistant Referee job has been handed to Stuart Attwell, who Lee Betts will assist.
