In-form Christian Eriksen eagerly awaiting his first Manchester derby



Manchester United v Arsenal – Premier League – Old Trafford

Summer signing Christian Eriksen already feels at home at Manchester United and can’t wait to get his first taste of the city derby this Sunday.

After a pair of postponements following the Queen’s death, Erik ten Hag’s side will make the short trip to neighbors Manchester City to play their first Premier League game since September 4.

It will be a first Manchester derby for the United manager and players like Eriksen, who has flourished since signing a deal until 2025 after his short-term contract at Brentford expired.

“I think, from my perspective, it’s only been a few months, but I feel like I’ve been here longer,” the Danish midfielder told United’s website.
