Manchester United take on Manchester City on Wednesday in their second derby showdown this season.
The two teams faced off in September with City beating United 2-1 at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils go into this fixture having suffered an awful few weeks in the Premier League.
Despite the slump, United fans will be loving the latest statistic that’s been revealed ahead of the mid-week match.
Check out this bad boy:

King Kev won’t be involved in the cup game which should give Jose Mourinho’s side a huge boost.
De Bruyne isn’t the only top star injured for the match though, Marouane Fellaini is also set to be ruled out.
Although, we’re not too sure if that’s a bad thing or not!
Jose will know that a win against his old rival Pep Guardiola could be the perfect reprieve for his struggling side.
Have a look what City will be missing in the match below, he’s quite the player!
