The biggest Premier League clash of the weekend sees City host United in the Manchester Derby!
Manchester City look unstoppable at the moment as they have now recorded 21 wins in a row in all competitions. They are 14 points ahead of their opponents in the title race, and a win here should all but secure the title barring a disastrous end to the season.
Despite the promise of their performances before Christmas, Man Utd have been unable to keep up with the scintillating form of their local rivals and will likely have to settle for a top-four spot. A win here could dimly reignite the title race, but considering the inconsistencies of this side, making up eleven points before the season ends is probably a task too far.
Manchester United have fared well against their city rivals in recent times, at least in the Premier League. They did the double last season and managed three wins in total, and they’ll be looking to end City’s winning streak and what seems like a procession to this year’s title. However, Manchester City did beat United at Old Trafford in the League Cup earlier this season, and the league game between the pair ended in a very dull 0-0 draw. Manchester United have a habit of 0-0 draws against the top sides in the league managing five in total — Chelsea (twice), Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal. Will there be another one here? You can get odds of 11/1 for another 0-0 draw in Sunday’s game.
Injuries and suspensions
