City have been the nosy neighbours for a long time now, having had a strong grip over this derby. United may come into this game with some good results from the recent past, but that doesn’t change the fact that City have an upper hand. I am backing goals in this encounter, and there should be at least three goals.

  • Man City have seen at least 3 goals in their last 4 matches against Man United (Premier League)
  • Man City have scored 10 goals in their last 2 home matches against Man United (Premier League)
  • Man United have seen over 2.5 goals scored in their last 8 matches (Premier League)
  • Man United have at least 3 goals scored in their last 4 away matches (Premier League)

Head to Head

This derby has been played out 191 times in all competitions and friendlies so far. Of these, there have been 60 wins for City, 78 wins for United, and the remaining 53 ended in a draw.

When the teams last met in the league, it was an easy 3-0 win for City at the Old Trafford stadium. Last season at this venue, City won 6-3.

Man City Form

Man City start the weekend in second place in the league standings, one point behind leaders Liverpool. With Arsenal only a point behind, the top-three race is turning out to be a fascinating one.

The hosts are coming off a 6-2 win over Luton in the FA Cup, but it is their recent league form that is of interest. City have won eight of their last nine league games, with only a 1-1 draw with Chelsea being the exception.

At home, City won four of their last five matches, but three straight draws before that sequence is a testimony to the fact that they aren’t infallible at home.

Man City Team News

Jack Grealish was injured in City’s FA Cup win over Luton and could miss out on this match. Defender Josko Gvardiol is also likely to miss out, unless he clears a late fitness test.

Man United Form

Man United started this weekend's fixtures in sixth place with 44 points. They are only three behind fifth-placed Tottenham, although they played a game extra.

A 1-0 away win against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup was their last result, extending their recent record to seven wins over the last nine competitive matches.

Yet, the visitors remain a shaky side, as was shown in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Fulham in the league last time out. They have also lost their last two away league games at this venue, conceding ten goals combined.

Man United Team News

The injury list at Man United is still lengthy, highlighted by the injury to striker Rasmus Hojlund. Harry Maguire missed the win at Forest due to injury and could be reassessed here.

What time does Man City vs Man United kick off?

This Man City vs Man United Premier League match is being played at the Etihad Stadium at 1:30 a.m. AEST Australia time on Monday, March 4.


Man City have had the edge over Man United in the recent past and have had many comfortable wins. Their recent form and table position suggest as much, and they would go all out for a win.

I am backing the teams to entertain, and over 2.5 goals remain my prime pick. Keep an eye on the aggregate market and look to combine Man City's win with the number of goals.
