Manchester United are set to make just one change from the side that defeated Juventus in the Champions League, according to the Evening Standard.

Juan Mata, who scored a sensational free-kick against the Bianconeri, could replace Jesse Lingard for the Manchester Derby on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Paul Pogba has overcome a late injury scare which saw him miss training on Friday and is expected to start.

Jose Mourinho’s side have managed to perform an impressive turnaround in form over recent weeks.

Following the club’s goalless draw with Valencia, United have since won four of their last six fixtures in all competitions.

At the heart of their impressive upturn in form has been Paul Pogba.

The World Cup winner missed United’s training session on Friday, having suffered a light injury.

However, it is expected that he will be passed fit to start the derby at the Etihad on Sunday.

Romelu Lukaku will undergo a late fitness test but is likely to remain on the bench with Alexis Sanchez starting in his place.

Mata returning to the line-up following his goal on Wednesday is the only change expected.
