English Premier League.

📺 TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (UK).

Manchester United play Manchester City this weekend in the fourth Manchester derby of the season.

Improving?

Man Utd have been playing a bit better recently with new signing Bruno Fernandes revitalising them. He has given them a creative spark which they have lacked in recent years, and he has also chipped in with a few goals. He is currently at 3/1 to score in this match. With Leicester and Chelsea wobbling in 2020, Man Utd will fancy themselves to catch them and make the Champions League places by the time the season finishes. The Red Devils also recorded a comfortable 0-3 win over Derby in the FA Cup during the week.

On a high

The blue half of Manchester are also on a high after their EFL Cup final victory over Aston Villa last weekend. They won the final 2-1 with goals from Rodri and Sergio Aguero. They will hope that the EFL Cup is the first of many trophies this season as they are still in the Champions League and FA Cup. Man City are at 8/13 to beat their Manchester rivals this weekend.

Match preview

Man United have beaten City twice already this season, but both times were at the Etihad, and Man City beat Man Utd comfortably at Old Trafford in the League Cup. The match will follow the same pattern as the previous matches between the two sides with Man Utd creating attacks on the counter and City dominating possession and looking to create openings. Man Utd have not beaten their city rivals at Old Trafford since 2015 - suggesting that the pressure of the home crowd is too much for the players. Both teams are in good form; Man City are the superior side in terms of personnel, but as shown in past encounters, Man Utd have upset the odds a few times.

Key players

Bruno Fernandes: He has been excellent since signing for Man Utd. He will be hoping to continue his current form and be the difference between the two sides.

Kevin de Bruyne: Pivotal in his side’s victory over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu and the Premier League assist leader.

Injury news

Manchester United: Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

Manchester City: Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane.
