Man City vs Man United EPL betting tips

City will play host to United in the English Premier League this Saturday in the 179th edition of the Manchester derby. Both sides need a win, although their ambitions this season are worlds apart.

Following their highly unexpected 2-2 draw away to Newcastle United last weekend, champions Manchester City returned to winning ways during the week with an emphatic 4-1 triumph away at Burnley. The result saw the Citizens retain third place on 32 points, three points behind second-placed Leicester City and 11 points behind leaders Liverpool.

Manchester United also overcame their shocking performance on the weekend with a much-improved display in midweek. Heading into Wednesday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur off the back of a disappointing 2-2 home draw with Aston Villa, Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side gave the Old Trafford faithful something to smile about when they overpowered Jose Mourinho’s Spurs to win 2-1.

The victory elevated the Red Devils to sixth place on 21 points, two points behind Wolverhampton Wanderers in fifth and 11 points adrift of Manchester City in third. A late charge for the title is out of the question, as United lie some 22 points adrift of the league leaders.

City may still be in the title race, given how we are just a few games short of the midpoint of the 2019/20 EPL season, but their campaign has been shrouded with inconsistent performances. Pep Guardiola’s side did the double over United on their way to clinching a second successive Premier League title last season, but their inability to grind out results – and United’s habit of turning up in big games – makes this match an open contest.

Manchester City team news

City could welcome back midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who missed Tuesday’s trip to Burnley having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season against Newcastle. Ukrainian defender Oleksandr Zinchenko could also be up for selection having been sidelined since early October due to a knee injury.

Veteran striker Sergio Aguero has yet to recover from a thigh injury sustained during the win over Chelsea a fortnight ago, while forward Leroy Sane and defender Aymeric Laporte remain sidelined with long-term knee injuries.

Manchester United team news

Anthony Martial’s knock against Aston Villa proved to be more severe than first thought, with the muscle injury set to have him sidelined for the second consecutive game. Ole will also be without the services of defenders Eric Bailly (knee), Diogo Dalot (groin), Timothy Fosu-Mensah (knee) and Marcos Rojo (muscular) on his trip to the Etihad.

Marcus Rashford goalscorer odds and specials

• Rashford anytime goalscorer – +210 at Bovada
• Rashford to score/United to win – +1210

Marcus Rashford is gradually finding his form as the season progresses. The England international is Manchester United’s leading scorer with 12 goals in all competitions, nine of those coming in the Premier League.

Once again at the double against Spurs on Wednesday night, the 22-year-old has now found the back of the net four times in as many games. Having scored against Chelsea, Leicester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur thus far this season, Rashford has every chance of beating Ederson in the City goal this weekend.

Man City vs Man United betting predictions

Manchester City are one of the strongest teams in European football. However, they have been read like an open book this season, which has seen them drop points in five of their opening 15 games in the English Premier League.

Manchester United have a terrible record on the road this term. The Red Devils have won just once all season when playing away from home, a psychological barrier that could pose a problem against City.

That said, United have two wins from their last four visits to the Etihad. Given their record against the top six this season, it might be worth backing the underdogs to snatch a marginal win at big odds.

Prediction: Manchester United to win – +850 at Bovada
