Judging by the early season form, the Manchester derby on Sunday will be an absolute belter and should go some way to telling us which side will win the Premier League this season.
The title race seems to be a three horse race with Arsenal also in the mix, and United will be looking to bounce back from their recent loss at the Gunners against their noisy neighbours.
Man City, meanwhile, have started the season strongly but also not without blemish (insert West Ham), while they’ll know that have won four of the last five matches with United.
Pellegrini will be without Sergio Aguero and David Silva which means City will likely rely on Wilfried Bony and Raheem Sterling up front at Old Trafford. Whilst this was enough to demolish Bournemouth, City can expect a much tougher encounter at home to United.
Kevin De Bruyne has been in terrific form since signing in the summer and United will have to stop the Belgian if they are to win this one.
As for United, Anthony Martial (5 goals in 9 games) is the golden boy at Old Trafford, while Wayne Rooney would surely love to cap his 30th birthday weekend with the best present he could give to himself.
The match will be a doozy, and the bookies have opened themselves up to huge payouts giving boosted odd on both sides.
Manchester United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Darmian; Jones, Smalling, Rojo; Carrick, Schneiderlin; Martial, Herrera, Mata; Rooney
Man City possible starting lineup: Hart; Kolarov, Kompany, Mangala, Sagna; Fernandinho, Toure; De Bruyne, Sterling, Navas; Bony
