United came away from Arsenal with an excellent 3-1 win last time out and they remain in second spot in the standings, 8 points shy of their opponents here

United have a 100% record at Old Trafford this season, winning all 7 league games, scoring 20 goals and conceding just the 1

United have been awarded a total of 52 corners in their 7 home games

Overall 9 of 15 league games have gone over 2.5 goals including 4 of 7 at home

Both sides have found the net in 5 of 15 league games including 1 of 7 home fixtures

Man City Stats:

City once again left it right to the end to see off West Ham 2-1 in their latest outing, the third consecutive league game where they have sealed victory in the closing moments and their record now comprises of 14 wins and 1 draw (1-1 at home to Everton)

City have won all 7 of their road trips, 4 with a clean sheet, the most significant being a 1-0 victory at Chelsea

The Betting

Match Result:

Manchester United 24/10

Draw 26/10

Manchester City 9/8

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Paul Pogba’s red card at Arsenal last weekend does United no favours but I’m siding with the draw here. United have extraordinary talent in goal and they are not in the habit of conceding league goals at Old Trafford. De Gea will still have to do well to keep a clean sheet but I reckon the value in the betting markets rests with the draw.

Bet: Match Result Draw at 26/10
