The big game in the Premier League this weekend takes place on Saturday, as the two Manchester giants clash at Old Trafford. Manchester United will be looking for a fifth win in the league, while City will be looking to close the gap on Arsenal to just two points.

Before Betting On Man United vs Man City

A lot seems to have changed since United and City last clashed at the Etihad earlier in the campaign. Things have certainly improved under Erik ten Hag since that humbling at the Etihad, as United are unbeaten domestically since that 6-3 defeat. In a strange turn of events, the Red Devils could close to within a point of their cross-city rivals with a victory at Old Trafford, which would have seemed remarkable just a few months ago.

The confidence within the United ranks will be extremely high coming into this fixture, as the Red Devils have won their previous four Premier League fixtures. They now sit in the Champions League places, and could move up to third with victory against City, which would remarkably close the gap on the top of the Premier League to just six points with a game against Arsenal creeping into sight.

City remain the most likely champions in the Premier League this season, but they have won just twice in their previous four league fixtures. A second defeat of the campaign was inflicted before the World Cup break, as City were beaten at home against Brentford, while they returned to the Etihad with a 1-1 draw against Everton.

City produced possibly their best performance of the season in the FA Cup last weekend, as they walked out 4-0 winners against Chelsea. City come into this fixture with a very solid record against United, as they have won the previous three meetings. United’s only win against City in the previous five was a 2-0 success at the Etihad in March 2021.

This will be an unmissable game in the Premier League on Saturday, and United’s recent form makes for a compelling fixture in prospect. Draws have been a rare occurrence in Manchester Derbies, with just one in the previous 14 in all competitions. However, that could be the most likely outcome at Old Trafford this weekend.
