Man City: Erling Haaland on Fire
Manchester City is undefeated in the 2022/23 campaign with five wins in seven Premier League games. They got, by far, the best score differential in the league, with 23 goals scored and just six conceded. They are sitting second in the EPL standings with 17 points to their name and trail leader Arsenal by just one point.
On top of that, they kicked off their Champions League campaign with two wins against Sevilla and Dortmund. For their new superstar striker Erling Haaland, this season has amounted to one giant masterclass in finishing. Haaland became the first Premier League player to score in each of his first four away games. He has scored in his last seven games and has personally outscored Chelsea, Manchester United, and 11 other top-flight sides.
He is responsible for almost 48 percent of Man City’s Premier League goals in the 2022/23 campaign. With 11 goals to his name, the 22-year-old Norwegian is the scoring leader in the top-flight league, with five goals more than Harry Kane and Aleksandar Mitrovic, who share the second spot. We will definitely continue to include him in our soccer picks and parlays.
Man United: Revived
After conceding six goals in the opening two rounds of the 2022/23 Premier League, the Red Devils managed to straighten out their defense. In the following match, they conceded just one goal to Liverpool, and since then, they have kept a clean sheet on four occasions across all competitions.
Marcus Rashford did not feature in United’s two Europa League games but is still expected to recover from the injury he sustained against Arsenal in time for Sunday’s derby. Anthony Martial’s fitness is, however, uncertain. The Frenchman has made just one appearance this season.
United is sitting fifth in the standings with 12 points picked up in six games. However, they have a match in hand on their city rivals, and they will try to pull off the upset and close the gap on the top spots. Towering centre-back Harry Maguire has lost his place in the starting lineup, while Cristiano Ronaldo is pushing for a start after coming as a substitute in the impressive 3-1 win over Arsenal. Ten Hag should have a full squad to choose from, but seeing that Man City is a real force to be reckoned with at home, we don’t recommend you to back the visitors if you’re betting online.
Man City vs Man United Head-to-Head
The Citizens enter this clash in strong form and have the top spot in their sights, but Pep Guardiola’s side has won just one of their last four home games against United across all competitions. The other three games were won by United, all of them under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Erik ten Hag’s men are also in fine form, winning four consecutive games in the Premier League, and the Dutchman is aiming to equal Solskjaer’s best winning streak by claiming three points on the road. We’ve seen both teams contribute on the scoresheet in just one of the last seven head-to-head between the two sides.

Man City vs Man United Prediction
The home team enters this clash as heavy favorites priced at -275 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 3½.
Even though Manchester United is showing some signs of progress lately, they just aren’t good enough to beat the Citizens. In fact, we doubt they can even get a single point in the derby. Man City will be determined to overcome Arsenal at the top of the table with the Gunners hosting Tottenham on Saturday. Their huge attacking firepower is the key to this clash. They possess great creativity in the midfield and a rock-solid defense, and we expect them to cover the spread on Sunday.
