Noel Gallagherwill be a special studio guest for Sky Sports' coverage of the Manchester derby this weekend.

The top two sides in the Premier League meet at Old Trafford this Sunday, with City eight points clear of United at the top of the table.

The mouth-watering clash is one of two derby showdowns taking place this weekend, with Everton set to travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool in Sunday's early kick-off.


The legendary @NoelGallagher will be in the Sky Sports studio for Man Utd v Man City with @GNev2 , @ThierryHenry, @Carra23 & Graeme Souness.

Sky Sports will be covering both games as part of 'Super Sunday', and the channel has announced that former Oasis member Noel will join Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher and Graeme Souness to share his thoughts on the match.

The die-hard City supporter will be giving his take on Pep Guardiola's side dominance this season and will no doubt be taking a few shots at former United captain Neville, who has admitted to being an Oasis superfan in the past.

Neville has already started the war of words with City, taking a lighthearted swipe at the club when one user complained that Sky Sports should have brought in a former City player rather than a fan for the build-up.

We cant find an ex city player thats won anything ! Noel won GQ haircut of the year once so hes the best we can get!

This won't be Noel's first attempt at being a sports pundit, with the grumpy rocker previously enjoying guest stints on Match of the Day and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Noel's appearance will add an extra dimension to what already promises to be a fascinating encounter, and we can't wait to see the smugness on either Noel or Gary's face at the full-time whistle.
