The Premier League season continues to chug along and what a clash on Saturday evening as Manchester United take on Manchester City at Old Trafford (kick off 5.30pm).

These two old foes have fought some titanic battles over the past few years and we are sure that this clash will be no different as both sides enter this match in decent domestic form.

Both sides are heavily tipped to bag at least a top six place. City, in particular, are hoping to topple Liverpool and regain the Premier League title.

An intriguing battle awaits as we take you on a preview of this Manchester derby. We will give you our prediction, the head-to-heads between the sides over the years and the latest Manchester United vs Manchester City odds and sports betting!

Manchester United vs Manchester City Predictions

This fixture is always one of the most eagerly-anticipated in the Premier League calendar. United are the most prolific title winners in Premier League history and City have been one of the most dominant teams over the past decade.

City endured a slow start to the season with some damaging defeats but they have since turned a corner and shored up a leaky defence. With the likes of Sergio Aguero coming back from injury, they are primed to go on a good run.

United’s form has been wobbly but they have surged up the table in recent weeks and the form of Bruno Fernandes is giving the Red Devils supporters cause for hope.

With that in mind, and both sides in good form in the league, we think a high-scoring draw could be on the cards.

Let’s check out the Manchester United vs Manchester City odds!
