Manchester Utd vs Manchester City PredictionLocal rivals Manchester United and Manchester City will meet for the fourth time in the space of three months this weekend when the Red Devils welcome the reigning champions to Old Trafford on Sunday.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 29
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester)
United currently boast the bragging rights for the season with two wins to one, but they sit 15 points behind Sunday's visitors in the Premier League table and know that anything other than a victory could harm their hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

It’s Manchester United v Manchester City for the fourth time this season, as the two crosstown rivals once again go head-to-head in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday.

It’s currently 2-1 to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side across the three previous meetings this season, although both of our victories came at the Etihad Stadium.

City came out on top in M16 in January and are seeking a fourth consecutive league win at the Theatre of Dreams.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the 182nd Manchester derby…

Manchester United vs Manchester City Team News

The 182nd edition of this derby may not carry as much weight as many of the recent meetings when it comes to the destination of the Premier League title, but it still promises to be a significant one for United in particular.

The race for Champions League football next season continues to be hotly contested with only three points separating four teams between fifth and eighth, while Burnley, Arsenal and Everton cannot be counted out just yet either.

Man City's European ban could be cause for double celebration as far as United are concerned if they do end up finishing fifth - the position they currently occupy - with that enough to earn a seat at Europe's top table as things stand.

However, the Red Devils will need to hold off stiff competition from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tottenham Hotspur and Sheffield United, the latter of whom arguably hold the advantage at this stage given their game in hand over the teams above them in the table.

United are certainly going into the business end of the campaign in good form; Thursday's FA Cup cruise at Wayne Rooney 's Derby County booked their place in the quarter-finals and made it nine games unbeaten across all competitions, during which time they have kept seven clean sheets and conceded only two goals.

A positive result against City this weekend would be a bonus to some extent, then, although Solskjaer has already got the better of Pep Guardiola in two of their three meetings this season, both of which came at the Etihad Stadium.

However, City's record at Old Trafford has been superb in recent years, while their most recent defeat to United was made irrelevant by the first-leg victory in that EFL Cup semi-final as they booked their place at Wembley courtesy of a 3-2 aggregate triumph.

City make the short trip to Old Trafford looking to win six consecutive games across all competitions for the first time this season, while they could also keep three Premier League clean sheets in a row for the first time in 2019-20.

Injured or Suspended Players

Manchester United: Pogba, Rashford, Grant, Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, Wan-Bissaka, James and Maguire.

Manchester City: Laporte, Sane and De Bruyne.

Man United vs Man City Predictions

There have only been two draws in the last 24 editions of this derby across all competitions, but with both sides coming into the match in good form we can see them cancelling each other out. United certainly need the win more than City in terms of their league aspirations this season, but the away team has dominated this fixture in recent years and we are backing Guardiola's side to come away with a share of the spoils on Sunday.
