Man United: Brilliant Form
There has been plenty to smile about for Man United since its disappointing defeat to Man City, as Erik ten Hag has steered his side on a superb run of form, losing just one of their last 18 competitive matches. It’s important to note that he did that without Cristiano Ronaldo, who recently became the highest-paid player in soccer history, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with Al Nassr, which will see him earn $210m per season.
United’s most recent success came in the EFL Cup when they booked their place in the semi-finals courtesy of a 3-0 home win over Charlton Athletic on Tuesday night, with in-form attacker Marcus Rashford scoring a brace.
The Red Devils are currently sitting fourth in the Premier League standings and level on points with Newcastle United in third. They will seek revenge after suffering a humbling 6-3 defeat against the Citizens at the Etihad Stadium in October. Their overall form and recent run at Old Trafford bodes well ahead of Saturday’s derby as they have won nine consecutive games in front of their fans, keeping seven clean sheets in the process, so if you’re betting online, there’s plenty of value backing them for this derby.
Erik ten Hag is hopeful Man United right-back Diogo Dalot will be fit to play on Saturday after being taken off in the first half against Charlton with a hamstring problem, while Donny Van de Beek and Axel Tuanzebe are both ruled out due to injury.
Man City: Ups and Downs
After cruising to a 4-0 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup third round last weekend, many would have predicted another easy win for Man City against Premier League basement club Southampton in the EFL Cup quarter-finals. Still, the Citizens not only got knocked out by the Saints, but they failed to score and registered zero shots on target.
After putting six goals past United in October, the Citizens are three goals away from equaling the most goals ever scored against the Red Devils by a single opposition in one season. That feat would be a fitting way to celebrate Guardiola’s 500th match of his top-flight managerial career.
City was relentless in that encounter at the Etihad, with Erling Haaland baring his teeth on an afternoon of final-third devastation as his attacking exploits yielded the third of his three hat-tricks this season. He clearly stands out as a goalscorer contender, but the value selection looks to be elsewhere, so we won’t include him in our soccer picks and parlays.
City is trailing leaders Arsenal by five points, so they must win in order to maintain the pressure on the Gunners.
Man United vs Man City Head-to-Head
City lost to Southampton in the EFL Cup this week but can bounce back at Old Trafford. Pep Guardiola’s troops have won all four of their games following a defeat this season and have dominated this fixture of late, winning each of the last three Manchester derbies with an aggregate score of 12-3.
City won 6-3 in the reverse fixture in October. United is averaging exactly two goals per game following the World Cup, and City has scored at least three goals in three of their last six games.
Marcus Rashford has seven goals in six games after returning from the World Cup.

Man United is enjoying a great period with positive results and good performance but let’s not forget it hasn’t played a top-half team since the World Cup, so its winning run is perhaps a little misleading.
United has only failed to score in one of its home league games and has scored in each of its last nine at Old Trafford across all competitions, but City should have enough to win this clash, so we will combine a straight-up win with the goals market for better odds.
