Manchester City did the double over Manchester United last season, with the former claiming a 4-1 victory against the Red Devils at the Etihad Stadium thanks to braces from Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez. They are strong favourites to get another maximum haul when the visitors make the short journey on Sunday.

Erling Haaland has been a predator for City since his summer arrival in England and the Leeds-born forward will be looking forward to his first taste of the derby, with the Premier League bookies making the Norwegian strong favourite to score the opening goal of the game.

The bookies might be offering an Erling Haaland price boost for this game including a player prop betting market such as shots on target. For those that are expecting a big City win, you can consider backing them on the Asian Handicap betting market where you can back them to cover a particular line.

However, Manchester United have enjoyed a four-game winning run of their own. Erik Ten Hag will be hatching a game plan to be competitive in this match and it’s worth noting that the Red Devils have been racking up the clean sheets in recent matches. It’s safe to say that David de Gea can expect to be busy between the sticks.
