The fixture is likely to yet again feature two of the most expensively-assembled squads in Premier League history, with Manchester City already having spent over £90 million this summer and set to spend more, while United are supposedly ready to spend £200 million to improve their squad.

Similarly to Huddersfield, Brighton will be hoping to get enough points on the board before the final few games of the season as they too face a hard run-in, playing Spurs, Manchester United and Liverpool in three of their last four matches.

Spurs will be out for vengeance and revenge after the Hammers won 1-0 at London Stadium toward the end of last season, all but ending Tottenham's title hopes.

There will be some early Christmas cheer in the blue half of Manchester should City topple United at Old Trafford on December 9, but April could prove more decisive as they host their neighbours and then visit Tottenham.
