Manchester United were good for a point against Premier League leaders Chelsea last weekend and they can carry the momentum from Robin van Persie’s late equaliser into Sunday’s Manchester derby.
Louis van Gaal is hoping Wayne Rooney is fit to be available for a fixture which United lost 4-1 last season although the Dutchman might go for the same starting XI that lined up against Chelsea, such was their success in stopping the Blues from creating chances.
Marouane Fellaini is sure to be employed against the might of Yaya Toure, with Marcos Rojo pitched against compatriot Sergio Aguero and another draw could be on the cards at the City of Manchester Stadium.
William Hill offer 3/1 about the draw and new customers can also get a £20 free bet with this bookmaker when they sign up and register a new account.
BetVictor go 33/10 about an away win and United are still looking for their first three-point haul on the road, with Angel Di Maria looking to provide some wizardry, while Van Persie is showing the form that has helped him top the scoring charts in the past.
Manchester City are odds-on across the board although a 2-1 reverse at Upton Park and a Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle United is hardly ideal preparation for this match and the visitors will fancy their chances of a positive result.
