Man City vs Man Utd preview

As mentioned, both sides played in midweek and came through their FA Cup ties away from home against Premier League opposition – but with differing levels of ease.

City were ruthless in front of goal as they thumped Luton at Kenilworth Road, scoring six goals, with five by Haaland and four assisted by Kevin de Bruyne.

The Cityzens will be wondering what could have been had KDB not been sidelined with injury for so long.

But going forward, it makes for exciting viewing for the remainder of the season if midweek is anything to go by.

United left it late with Casemiro nodding home an 89th minute winner against Nottingham Forest.

That followed last weekend’s shock, disappointing defeat against Fulham at home and they’ve got a job on their hands here.

City have won six of the last eight derbies this pair have contested in all competitions.

They’re also unbeaten in their last 16 games – drawing just twice in that time.

United’s recent away record – winning their last six – should give them some confidence.

City have scored 10 goals in the last two derbies at the Etihad.

Another big City win is anticipated, though.

Yellow Case

It’s always a good idea to have a look at the foul markets for a day like this.

Yellow card markets can be good but maybe not such value in them when a derby is involved.

However, this pick involving Casemiro does look really decent value, considering his 19 fouls in 13 league appearances this season.

He’ll be told to watch De Bruyne but the movement in midfield could be too much for him.

  • Our pick: Casemiro 1+ foul in each half at 7/5 – CLAIM HERE

He’s back

His four assists got some of the midweek headlines but KDB will want those shots tallies upped too.

On free kicks and with a potentially deep United line, his efforts from long range could play a key part.

  • Our tip: Kevin De Bruyne 2+ shots on target at 3/1 – CLAIM HERE
