Derby County and Manchester United predictions

Derby County managed to survive last season, but this time their job was made even harder. There are only a limited number of players to work with manager Wayne Rooney, and Mel Morris, the owner of the Rams, wants to sell the club.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have already been active in the transfer market, signing goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Jayden Sancho. However, Ole Gunnar Solskayer is missing key players for this game.

This is where Manchester United should win.

Forecast: Derby County 0-3 Manchester United
