Man City must win derby to keep spiralling season alive
Rumours have started to swirl that Taylor could be out of a job if they don’t get a win over United but nothing has been confirmed.
The Red Devils will be favourites for the fixture but United’s manager has dismissed the claims, saying: “We all know that a derby, any form goes out of the window, it’s all about moments, concentration, knowing your opponent. I expect a wonderfully electric moment.
“We have to keep it in perspective, how we want to approach it is that it’s another team we have to play with the added emotion of it being one of these games. We need to be ruthless regardless of the opponent, we have to play like a derby every game. It’ll be a great game, two really good teams going at it and a good one for the spectators to follow.”
Manager Jonas Eidevall can claim an unblemished record in the league but he fell to his first defeat as Arsenal boss on Tuesday as they were beaten 4-1 in the Women’s Champions League by Barcelona.
While the defeat shows Everton that Arsenal have weaknesses, the London club could put out a huge performance to heal their wounds.
Meanwhile, defending champions Chelsea take on newcomers Leicester City on Sunday who are looking for their first points of the season.
Leicester have shown promise and were dominant last season in the Championship but they are yet to make their mark in the top-flight.
