United, meanwhile, have struggled to keep up with their neighboring competitors Manchester City in the Premier League this season and are already 15 points adrift of the top flight leaders.

But after their win over Manchester United, and even the fixture we had ourselves against Wolves from the same division, was it any surprise. He came on Guardiola's radar when Shakthar inflicted the Citizens their only defeat this season in a Champions League group stages clash in early December. Manchester United host Stoke on Monday and will look to capitalise on any slip-up at Anfield, while Arsenal travel to Bournemouth.

Coach Eddie Niedzwiecki is in temporary charge of the team for the trip to Old Trafford.

Crystal Palace face Burnley, Huddersfield meet West Ham United and Newcastle United entertain Swansea City in other weekend matches.
