Manchester United currently sit eighth in the Premier League with fifteen points from their nine games so far. The Red Devils have won five and lost four league games so far this season.
Erik ten Hag’s side have won three successive matches in all competitions including back-to-back 2-1 wins in the league.
Manchester City have fallen five points behind league leaders, Tottenham Hotspur having lost successive league games away from home. Last season’s champions lost away at both Arsenal (1-0) and Wolves (2-1) but got back to winning ways at home to Brighton in their most recent Premier League game.
Manchester United v Manchester City: head-to-head
Manchester United earned a 2-1 win in this corresponding fixture last season thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford. However, their recent record against their cross-city rivals is poor.
Manchester City ran out 2-1 winners when the sides met in last season’s FA Cup final whilst in the Premier League they have won three of the last four matches between the sides.
There hasn’t been a clean sheet in any of the past four matches between these two sides with an average of five goals scored. These statistics make both teams to score and over 2.5 match goals sensible bets at the same odds of 8/11. Alternatively, over 3.5 match goals will boost your odds to 15/8.
Having failed to score in four successive games, Erling Haaland has been back amongst the goals recently. The Manchester City forward scored the decisive second goal in their league win of Brighton before scoring twice in Man City’s 3-1 UEFA Champions League win away at Young Boys. Haaland may be reasonably priced to score first at 11/4 but given that he hasn’t opened the scoring in any Manchester City game since August, we’re going to play it safe and opt for the 5/6 any time scorer option instead.
There is plenty of value throughout the Manchester United squad in the any time scorer market. Scott McTominay has scored three times in Manchester United’s last two Premier League games yet he is a huge 8/1 to score at any time at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Despite their fierce local rivalry, the Manchester derby doesn’t tend to produce too many cards. Nine of the past ten Manchester derbies have produced five bookings or less. BoyleSports are offering 5/6 on under 55.5 booking points on Sunday.
Slow-starting Manchester United have been trailing at half-time in each of their last four home league games. Meanwhile, four of Manchester City’s last five Premier League goals have come in the first 45 minutes. Manchester City to be leading at half-time is excellent value at 6/5.
- Manchester United: 4/1
- Draw: 14/5
- Manchester City: 8/13
