This weekend is set to be a cracking festival of Premier League action.
But, unlike Glasto, it will start with the headline act, rather than finish with it.
That headline act is Man United v Man City at lunchtime on Saturday and here are five things to look out for.
1. Mourinho’s bus
The main sub-battle of this titanic tussle is, of course, between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola.
And, although his side are at home, it seems very likely than Mourinho will park the bus.
Jose often does this against the big teams. His theory is seemingly thus: ‘Beat the inferior teams with talent and then use grit to grind out results against the fellow big boys.’
As a consequence of Mourinho’s cautious approach, the game may well disappoint goal-hungry neutrals, although it will surely be fascinating regardless.
2. Hot Rashford
Marcus Rashford has been given just 19 minutes of Premier League action this season. That came in one substitute appearance in a 1-0 victory at Hull City, where he scored a late winner.
Since then, the teenage wonderkid responded to being dropped by England’s senior side by bagging a hat-trick on his U21 debut.
In short, Rashford’s on fire and, if given the chance, he could well settle this game, just as he did in a 1-0 win over City at the Etihad last season.
With Zlatan Ibrahimovic also in fine form and well-rested after a relaxing international break, it seems likely that Rashford will again start from the bench.
Don’t be surprised if he comes on and nabs the winner though.

3. Sane sighting
Leroy Sane, who cost City £37m when he signed from Schalke this summer according to The Guardian, is in line to make his debut. Talk about being thrown in at the deep end!
With Sergio Aguero out through suspension, Pep is expected to call upon Sane to lead his attack.
Sane scored eight goals and provided six assists in 33 Bundesliga games last season.
According to The Sun, 400 police officers will be on duty for this game and have all been told to be extra prepared, farcically because of fears the feud between Mourinho and Guardiola could spark crowd trouble.
In reality, the most likely source of violence is elbow-swinging, bone-crunching United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who has been passed fit after missing Belgium’s last match with a back strain.
5. Bullet Brits
Don’t worry, we’re not expecting a gun fight.
However, City’s right winger Raheem Sterling, is a fast as a bullet and will be looking to cause plenty of damage.
Sterling will be up against fellow Brit Luke Shaw, though, and the Red Devils left-back is one of the few players in the league who is capable of challenging him in the pace stakes.
It will be great to watch if these two get drawn into a foot race.
