Man City to win and under 2.5 goals (3/1)

Given the nature of the derby and the importance for both, this is likely to be a cagey affair.

Manchester City will desperately need to match or better Liverpool’s result when they face West Ham the day earlier.

Manchester United were very poor in their last league outing as they were held to a goalless draw with Watford.

Raheem Sterling to score first (5/1)

Sterling is expected to return to City’s line-up having been rested in the FA Cup.

The winger has been a key part of Guardiola’s side this season.

He has 13 goals to his name this season.

Match preview: Manchester City vs Manchester United

Manchester City maintained their six-point lead at the top of the table last Saturday with a win at Goodison Park.

Pep Guardiola’s side won 1-0 against Everton with Phil Foden scoring the only goal.

They are now six points above Liverpool, but the Reds have a game in hand over them.

City were also in FA Cup action this week as they defeated Peterborough to reach the quarter-finals.
