Manchester City, who returned to form with a 4-1 win at Burnley on Tuesday, are looking for a fourth successive home win.

Manchester United claimed an impressive 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur in midweek but are seeking just their second away win.

Man City have won 15 Premier League matches against Man Utd, with 10 of those coming in the last eight years. Only Chelsea have won more against them, with 18.

Both teams coming in in good from should make for a very exciting derby.

One To Watch

Marcus Rashford has been a regular for Ole’s side this season and has been in solid form, nabbing 2 goals just this past week against Spurs. City’s defence will have their work cut out if they are to stop him on Tuesday.

Prediction

Coming off a promising and great result, I can see the blues being as confident as ever and coming out with even more fire, so I can definitely see City style to a win.

They want to remind United who own the town. Should be a fantastic game.

Manchester City 3-1 Manchester United
