Man City vs Man Utd: Predictions
After a stuttering start to the season, Pep Guardiola’s men have been absolutely ruthless over the past couple of months, winning an astonishing 21 straight games across all competitions, including 15 in the Premier League. The Citizens have raced 14 points clear of United at the top of the table and a win here will only serve to rub salt in the wound of their title challengers.
But Man Utd are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games against their derby rivals, winning two and drawing one, while they’ve kept two clean sheets during that time. Sure, City beat the Red Devils in the EFL Cup semi-final recently, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are unbeaten in their last 21 away Premier League matches and would love nothing more than to put a stop to City’s procession here.
Man City vs Man Utd: Match Stats
Solskjær could become the first manager in Manchester United’s history to win each of his first three away meetings in all competitions with Manchester City.
Manchester United are unbeaten in 21 away Premier League matches (W13 D8) – in top-flight history, only Arsenal have had a longer away unbeaten run, going 23 without defeat between August 2001 and September 2002 and 27 without defeat between April 2003 and September 2004.
Manchester City haven’t trailed for a single minute in any of their last 19 Premier League games – if they don’t fall behind in this game it will be a new record in the competition’s history (Arsenal also 19 between Dec 1998-May 1999). They will also set a new club record of 29 games unbeaten across all competitions if they avoid defeat here.
Man City’s Sergio Agüero has scored nine goals in 16 Manchester derbies in all competitions. However, eight of those nine goals came in his first eight meetings with the Red Devils, with the Argentine netting just one in his previous eight against them.

These two great rivals played out a bore goalless draw in the Premier League back in December although City followed that up with a 2-0 win over the Red Devils in the EFL Cup semi-final in January, just their second in six meetings with United.
