Manchester City v Manchester United

After thrashing Southampton 6-1 in a home fixture last weekend City are now 2 points clear of Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League standings. Their record comprises of 9 wins, 2 draws and they have yet to losein the league this season. At home City have won all 6 of their league games, scoring 24 goals and conceding 3.

A late goal saw United win 2-1 at Bournemouth last weekend and they reside in seventh spot, 9 points behind City. They have an overall record 6 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats and away from home they have won 3, drawn 1 and lost 2, scoring 11 goals and conceding 10.

Aguero has scored 7 Premier League goals for City, 4 of which were his teams first goal. Sterling has scored 6 goals and 3 of those were City’s opening goal.

Martial has found the net 5 times for United in the league, 2 of which were his teams first goal. Lukaku has 4 goals in total, 3 of which were United’s opening goal.



City did lose this fixture 3-2 to United last season but they are in such terrific form right now they are hard to oppose. Just over 18% of their goals have arrived in minutes 1-15 but with this been a derby we reckon the deadlock will be broken by City somewhere between 16 and 25 minutes and our choices are David Silva and Raheem Sterling. Play here
