City come into the game on the back of a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions. Tey have won three out of five in the Premier League and sit seventh in the table, with 18 points from ten games.
United are one point and one place above and have won four consecutive games in the league. However, they suffered a 3-2 defeat to RB Leipzig in their previous fixture, which saw them knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage.
Pep Guardiola will have an absence in Eric Garcia and a questionable status for Ilkay Gundogan.
Defender Phil Jones is out and Edinson Cavani is questionable will for United.
An interesting managerial duel, Pep v Ole is experience vs novice. Ole has had the Catalan’s number recently so something will have to give. I do think City’s quality in midfield will be the difference. Along with a greatly improved defense.
Manchester City 2-0 Manchester United
