Man City vs Manchester United: Kick-off time, predictions, TV, live stream, team news, h2h – preview

City looked in fine form ahead of the international break, while United can boast four wins after overcoming a poor start but are already five points behind their local rivals.

Last season’s Manchester derbies were ones to forget for United – beating 2-0 at home before a 4-1 at the Etihad – and City will be confident of another commanding display, especially with Erling Haaland seemingly unstoppable up top .

Man City vs Manchester United Team News

John Stones will miss the derby after suffering what appeared to be a hamstring injury while playing for England against Germany earlier this week.

Aymeric Laporte, meanwhile, has returned to training after knee surgery in the summer, although this weekend’s game probably comes too soon. Elsewhere for City, Kyle Walker is fit again and Nathan Ake is the favorite to partner Ruben Dias in central defense ahead of Manuel Akanji.

For United, Harry Maguire will be out for good, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are in a race against time to be fit for the trip to the Etihad.

Donny van de Beek (hitting), Martin Dubravka (thigh) and Brandon Williams have all been in the treatment room for the past few weeks.

Man City vs Manchester United Prediction

Manchester City already appear to be in full swing this season, but who’s to say the disruption of an international break could get in the way of that. Manchester United have somewhat shaken up a dismal start, although their Europa League performances have been far from convincing.

Erling Haaland has scored in all but one game so far, and you wouldn’t bet against him adding to his record form on Sunday, in what will be his first Manchester derby. The hosts have more than enough to put United to the sword, although I can see it’s a close game.

Man City win 2-0.
