Premier League leaders Manchester City make a short trip to Old Trafford this weekend to lock horns with fierce rivals and neighbours Manchester United. The Citizens are enjoying an eight-point lead ahead of the second-placed Red Devils and will be determined to at least maintain it and – why not – extend it.Pep Guardiola’s men have been in flying form this whole season and have yet to lose a single game in English top flight. The midweek Champions League action however saw Manchester City suffer their first defeat of the season, at the hands of Shakhtar Donetsk in what’s been an unfortunate warm-up for the Manchester derby.The Citizens qualified for the knockout stages as Group F winners long before the Wednesday’s match against the Ukrainian giants and will not cry over spilt milk, however.
On the other side, Manchester United will be extremely happy to have continued the winning streak which now has them flying on a four-match winning run. Jose Mourinho’s men came from behind to beat CSKA Moscow and will be raring to go against their fierce rivals in effort to revive the Premier League title race. Beating a side such as Manchester City will not be an easy task and therefore we suggest betting on goals instead. BetVictor has 2.5 goals offered at a valuable 20/23 price we believe should not be missed out on.
