The Manchester Derby is the headline act as the Premier League returns after a brief interlude for the FA Cup, and it sees the two sides go into it in different frames of mind.
In contrast to previous years, Manchester United have the edge over their city rivals based on current form, with Marcus Rashford playing the best football of his career and the Red Devils looking a well-oiled machine under Erik ten Hag’s stewardship, but their rivals have suffered a blip of late.
The 2-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Southampton prompted questions to be asked of City’s squad players and was less than two weeks since a similarly unimpressive 1-1 draw with Everton, which leaves Pep Guardiola’s side facing questions over their strength, but they will head into the derby in utmost confidence knowing they have a strong recent record against Manchester United.
Elsewhere in our daily tips, we look across the major leagues in Europe as well as the start of the latest Premier League Survivor Game - with an estimated prize pool of £25,000 for just £10 entry to play our version of last man standing.
