Scott McTominay believes this afternoon’s 185th Manchester derby represents a great chance to bounce back after a recent dip in form.
United are goalless in three games and have struggled to score against the ‘Big Six’ teams this season.
The Reds can return to second with victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium but Pep Guardiola’s men are huge favourites.
City are on a 21 game consecutive win streak and are runaway league leaders but McTominay is not fearful of the likely champions.
McTominay scored a stunning goal against Man City in the last game United played in front of their own fans at Old Trafford a year ago and the Scottish international takes belief from past results against their rivals into this fixture.
He admits it’s been a difficult few weeks for the Reds but thinks this daunting game could be the perfect chance to get a huge result.
