Welcome to our Manchester City vs Manchester United betting tips, prediction and odds analysis ahead of their English Premiership clash on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City have won their last 21 games in all competitions and are in excellent form, sailing towards their third English Premiership title in four seasons under manager Pep Guardiola.
Though second-place Manchester United are still technically in the title race, their form recently has been frustrating as they have drawn their last three consecutive Premier League games with each having a final score of 0-0.
Head to Head stats
The two teams last met in an EFL Cup semi-final clash at Old Trafford in January. Manchester City won 2-0.
Manchester United have won three out of the last six games which the teams have played against each other.
Manchester City have won two out of the last six games in which the teams have played against each other.
Latest Manchester City results
Manchester City beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-1 in their last game on Tuesday.
The last time that Manchester City failed to win was when they drew 1-1 against West Bromwich Albion in December.
The last time that Manchester City lost was in a 2-0 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur in November.
Latest Manchester United results
Manchester United have drawn their last three games in all competitions by a score of 0-0. They played out to league stalemates against Chelsea and Crystal Palace whilst also drawing the second leg of their Europa League Round of 32 clash against Real Sociedad.
United have won two out of their last five games in all competitions.
The last time that United lost was in a 2-1 shock defeat to Sheffield United in late January.
Manchester City are simply in a league of their own at the moment. With their confidence being sky-high and Manchester United’s defence making several mistakes recently, the Cityzens should be able to down their neighbours convincingly.
Anytime goal scorers
Manchester City- İlkay Gündoğan. Given that he only made a cameo in City’s win over Bournemouth, the German will be expected to start against United. Gündoğan is City’s leading scorer in the league this season, having found the back of the net 11 times so far. He will be a threat to United’s defence and there is a good chance that he will score.
Manchester United- Bruno Fernandes. Fernandes is one of the best players in the Premier League and shooters of the ball. Whilst City has a better team than United, the Portugal international is the one player that they have to be weary of. Fernandes can score at any moment of the game and if United is to upset their opponents, he may have to get onto the scoresheet.

Bet on Manchester City to win
City are simply in good form now and will be the favourites to win any game that they play in the league. With United’s attack misfiring and their attack firing on all cylinders, there is a good chance that they will completely outplay their bitter rivals and city neighbours in the Manchester derby. My prediction is for City to win 2-1.
