Man United vs Man City Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


It is the fourth Manchester derby of the season as Man United host Man City in a Premier League fixture at Old Trafford. All three previous matches have produced goals and with both teams looking vulnerable at the back lately, Sunday’s match is tipped to follow a similar pattern.

Manchester United Form


Man United were held to a 1-1 draw at Everton last time out in the Premier League. They fell behind early in the contest but struck back just after the half hour mark through Bruno Fernandes.

The Red Devils are three points behind Chelsea in the top four race but have been inconsistent in the Premier League in recent weeks. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have claimed three victories in their last eight league matches and have won just once in their last three at Old Trafford.

United often struggle to keep things tight at the back and have conceded in eight of their last 11 home matches.

Midfielder Paul Pogba and striker Marcus Rashford remain sidelined with injury and will miss Sunday’s match.

Manchester City Form


Man City booked their place to the quarter finals of the FA Cup in midweek after claiming 1-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday with Sergio Aguero getting the goal. The champions are still basking in the euphoria of their EFL Cup success after claiming a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa.

City were not overly convincing at the back against Villa which has been one of their problems in recent weeks. Pep Guardiola’s men have failed to keep a clean sheet in eight of their last 12 Premier League away matches. 

Despite their recent struggles at the back, City often find a way to get the result as they head into Sunday’s match on a five-match winning run. 

Manchester City News


Aymeric Laporte remains sidelined with injury while Kevin De Bruyne is doubtful with a shoulder problem. Fernandinho and goalkeeper Ederson were rested in the FA Cup and should return to the team on Sunday.

Man United vs Man City Head to Head


Man United have a 63-48 advantage with 47 draws from 158 previous matches against Man City. There has been BTTS in five of the last seven meetings while City have won the last three fixtures at Old Trafford.

The most recent meeting was an EFL Cup semi final clash which United won 1-0 thanks to Nemanja Matic's first half effort.

Man United vs Man City Betting Odds


Bookmakers have installed Man United as outsiders with Unibet offering 5.40 for a home win. A victory for Man City is priced at 1.62 while a draw is set at odds of 4.50. There has been BTTS in five of the last seven meetings and a similar outcome is valued at 1.70.

The last meeting at Old Trafford produced over 3.5 goals which is paying 2.62 at bet365 while over 2.5 goals is offered at odds of 1.66.

Man United vs Man City Match Up 


Bruno Fernandes has become increasingly influential for Man United and has scored in his last two Premier League matches. Anthony Martial has also impressed in recent weeks, scoring twice in his last three appearances in the league.

Man City’s Sergio Aguero has a fine record in Manchester derbies with nine goals in 12 previous matches against Man United. The striker has also scored in his last two matches and with support from Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez, should have enough to get past the United defence.
