Man Utd v Man City
Published: Saturday, 6th November 2021 at 11:30 am

The Manchester derby is the showpiece game of this weekend's Premier League TV schedule with both clubs eager for a return to consistent winning ways


Manchester United picked up a crucial 3-0 victory over Tottenham to end a barren winless streak and backed it up with a draw against Atalanta during the midweek European clashes.

The good news for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is that his reliance on older, wiser heads is paying dividends. Edinson Cavani looked superb against Spurs and Cristiano Ronaldo notched two more goals on the continent to rescue another point for his team.

Manchester City are by no means in free-fall or even trouble, but they don't quite boast the same swagger as recent seasons without Sergio Aguero leading the line.

Pep Guardiola's men were humbled by a refreshed Crystal Palace last time out, but City haven't quite found top gear in 2021/22 with Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish among those yet to set the league alight. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Man Utd v Man City on TV and online.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Man City

Most people will probably tip City to walk this one based on the narrative swirling around United, but don't be so sure.

Solskjaer has a penchant for turning up in the biggest games. Of course, this isn't always true (a cursory glance at that Liverpool result proves it's not a guarantee) but his United team boasts a strong record against City. United have lost just one of eight Manchester derby clashes with Ole at the wheel.

City lack a focal point and desperately need De Bruyne to hit top gear this season. Overall, they're a stronger team with a stronger identity, but United boast the match-winners, the individual talents capable of flipping games on their head with one chance.

Our prediction: Man Utd 1-1 Man City (15/2 at bet365)
