VICTOR LINDELOF will hope Manchester United can turn on a derby show as electric as his new £140,000 car.
The Swedish defender’s environmentally-friendly hybrid upstaged his team-mates’ familiar array of gas-guzzling sportscars when they turned up for training.
Lindelof’s Polestar 1 shows his support for a little-known home-country firm.
But with Eric Bailly back in the United side, and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly keen to add a FOURTH centre-back this summer, Lindelof will hope his Old Trafford has more mileage than his new car.
Its electric charge lasts just 77 miles.
But Polestar say that’s the longest range of any hybrid.
And a top speed of 155mph looks even more incredible when you consider it does 470 miles to the gallon, when combining petrol and electricity.
Skipper Harry Maguire looked stern-faced as he turned up, perhaps thinking of second-placed United’s 14-point deficit on neighbours City ahead of Sunday afternoon’s clash at the Etihad.
And midfielder Scott McTominay gave a cryptic finger-up sogn at the wheel as he truend up at the Carrington training ground.
But fit-again Lindelof, 26, hopes he is finally shaking off his persistent injury problems, having been on the bench in Wednesday’s 0-0 Prem draw at Crystal Palace.
He told United’s website: “Of course. It’s a big game, everyone wants to play in those games.
“Yeah I’ve been struggling a bit with my back. I’ve been having it for the last couple of months.
“I missed a few games as well and I am just trying to manage it in a good way… I came back slowly. I played one game and then I got to rest again, it felt a bit better.
“I have been having these issues for the last couple of months but I’m still out there because I want to be playing, to help my team win games.
“If I’m sore for a few days after it or in a bit of discomfort, that’s not a problem if the team wins.”
