  • Competition: English Premier League
  • Date: 14th January 2023
  • Kickoff: 12:30 UTC / 13:30 CET
  • Venue: Old Trafford

The first Manchester Derby of 2023 will be played on Saturday as United take on City at Old Trafford in the Premier League this weekend. The Red Devils are just four points behind their bitter rivals and could close the gap to six points from Arsenal if they win in this game. On the other hand, Pep Guardiola's men have to play every game like a final if they want to oust Arsenal from the top of the table spot as the Carabao Cup elimination against Southampton must have hurt the blue half of Manchester quite a lot. Nevertheless, with both sides losing just once at home and away this year, it will be a classic encounter to remember when they meet this weekend.

Man United vs Man City Betting Pick #1: Man City to win

City have won each of the last three meetings with Erik Ten Hag's men, and with the Carabao Cup exit, they will be fuelled even more to win their title back. United have a six-game winning streak coming into this game but we believe they will be outclassed by Guardiola's tactics. We also believe that this will be an evenly matched tie too for most parts of the game and should not see more than 3 goals on the night too. This is because six of the last eight meetings between them have seen under 2.5 goals which is quite strong a pattern.

Pick #2: BTTS

United have scored 16 goals alone at Old Trafford in the last eight fixtures played there. With six wins from eight games played at this venue, they will not go down without a fight at all too. Considering City have a clean record of scoring against United in four of the last five games now (even opening the scoring on all those occasions), we believe that both sides will easily score in this tie.

Manchester United Team News

Jadon Sancho is back in training after his recent knock, but he will surely not start this game on Saturday. A place on the bench might be guaranteed though as Donny van de Beek is out with a knee injury, at least till the end of February. On the defensive front, Diogo Dalot's absence due to hamstring problems means that Aaron Wan-Bissaka will continue to have chances to impress his Dutch coach. No suspensions for the red devils whatsoever.

Players to watch: Marcus Rashford (7 goals and 3 assists), Bruno Fernandes (44 chances created this season), Casemiro (1.6 interceptions per 90 mins)

Manchester City Team News

Centre-back John Stones was seen limping off against Southampton and is doubtful to make the starting eleven on Saturday. But we expect the England international to pass a late fitness test and be available as Manchester City are missing another centre-back to injury - Ruben Dias. The Portuguese defender is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered in the World Cup and will be back in training soon. Pep Guardiola has no certain unavailability apart from Dias, both from a suspension or injury point of view.

Players to watch: Erling Haaland (21 goals and 3 assists), Kevin de Bruyne (59 chances created this season), Joao Cancelo (1.4 interceptions per 90 mins)
