Man City are one of just two teams left unbeaten in the Premier League this season with five wins and two draws from their opening seven matches. Pep Guardiola’s side are looking to win the Premier League title for the third consecutive season, becoming just the second club to do so after Man Utd (twice), but they have been here before and failed.
The Citizens have been formidable in attack this season, scoring 23 goals, five more than any other club and they also have the second-best defence conceding six. The only two teams to have taken points off Man City so far this season are Newcastle and Aston Villa, with the former scoring three in a thrilling draw they will think they should have won.
But Man Utd have been the run-enders this season. When Arsenal travelled to Old Trafford at the start of September, the Gunners were perfect in the Premier League and looking to extend their lead at the top of the table. However, Man Utd had other ideas and handed Arsenal a 3-1 defeat to continue their own impressive run.
After a poor start to the season, losing both their opening matches to Brighton (2-1) and Brentford (4-0), Man Utd bounced back emphatically to beat Liverpool 2-1 – the start of a four-match winning run in the league. The Red Devils go into this game in fifth, just five points behind third-placed Tottenham with a game in hand over the London club.
