One of the big highlights of the Premier League fixture list each season as Man Utd welcome their bitter rivals Man City across town to Old Trafford.

This will be the 169th time the sides have played in the league and it’s United that hold the series lead with 66 wins, to 52 draws and 50 wins for City.

Last season this repeat fixture ended Man Utd 2-1 Man City, but it’s worth noting that the Red Devils have won just 2 of their last 8 vs City in all competitions.

While City have also lost only 3 of their last 12 away league games vs Man Utd.

The match betting reflects this with City the favourites at 1.70, despite being the away side, with the draw 4.00 and Man Utd on offer at 4.50.

The recent head-to-heads suggest goals too, with the last 4 all going Over 2.5, plus both teams have scored in the last 4 too.

You can back 3+ goals at 1.66, or both sides of Manchester finding the back of the net here at 1.66 too.

With only 2 draws in the last 20 meetings in all competitions, we tend to get a result here, while if you want a dabble in the correct score market then it might pay to note that City have won 2 of the last 7 repeat fixtures 2-1. You can back this again at 9.00.

Finally, the scoring markets are always dominated by Erling Haaland when City are in action – he can be backed at 3.60 (1st) or 1.83 (anytime), but his new strike partner, Julian Alvarez is also having a top season and can be supported at 6.50 (1st) or 2.87 (anytime).

Looking at the United team, Bruno Fernandes has netted in the last 2 head-to-heads and is on the table at 13.00 (1st) or 5.50 (anytime).

Overall, it’s a game that City should be winning as they keep up the pressure on those around them at the top of the table in another title-defending season for them and even though Over 2.5 Goals is tempting too at 1.66, a City win at 1.70 is slightly better value and how we are going to play this one – keeping it simple.
