Manchester UTD v Manchester City betting preview
Man UTD have lost their last three home games against Man City in all competitionsMan UTD are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions, including their 1-0 win over City in the League Cup semi-final few weeks ago. The Red Devils secured place in the FA Cup quarter-final with a comfortable 3-0 win at Derby in midweek. In Prmeier League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men sit 5th in the table, three points below 4th placed Chelsea and level on points with Wolverhampton. As to direct encounters, the reverse fixture at the Etihad Stadium saw Rashford and Martial earn United a 2-1 victory in December. Anyway, the Red Devils have suffered three consecutive defeats against their city rilvas at Old Trafford in all competitions.
Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba remain sidelined for the hosts. Anthony Martial could be pushed out wide after Odion Ighalo scored twice in midweek, with the Nigerian international expected to make a first Premier League start since New Year's Day in 2017. Bruno Fernandes and Daniel James will complete the offensive midfield trio while Nemanja Matic and Fred are likely to play from the off in midfield. Mason Greenwood provides a further offensive option up front. In defense, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire will all be assessed before Sunday's game after missing the FA Cup tie. Viktor Lindelof and Luke Shaw should be both in the starting lineup.
Man City have won 12 of the last 15 fixtures across all competitionsManchester City, fresh from their Carabao Cup triumph at Wembley, overcame a spirited Sheffield Wednesday side to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday night. The Citizens return to play in Premier League, where they comfortably sit 2nd in the standings, after three successive cup games in three different competitions. A run that includes a pivotal 2-1 away win against Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 round. Despite their dominance, Man City have won just three of nine meetings with top-seven rivals this season. They have lost two of the three match against United this term, although one of these was an irrelevant loss in the 2nd leg of an EFL Cup semi-final.
Pep Guardiola has revealed Kevin De Bruyne is a serious doubt for the derby. If fit, the Belgian should play in front of a central midfield two of Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan, with the likes of Phil Foden and Raheem Sterling out wide. In defense, John Stones' indifferent form and Aymeric Laporte's hamstring injury may well ensure that Nicolas Otamendi gets a centre-half spot, alongside Fernandinho. The likes of Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy should get the nod over Joao Cancelo and Alexander Zinchenko as full backs.
