Manchester United are up to 4th on the table after 4 successive victories, they beat Bournemouth 3-0 at home last time out and since returning to action after the World Cup break have scored 7 goals without conceding.
They have now won 6 and drawn 1 of their 8 home matches including winning their last 4 in succession and looking at Manchester United goal stats at Old Trafford 5 of the 8 matches have had 3 goals or more in them.
Defending Champions and current favourites Manchester City are currently 2nd on the log, 5 points behind leaders, Arsenal going into this weekend’s fixtures.
City beat Chelsea 1-0 on the road last time out and away from home they have only lost 1 of their 8 matches, drawing 2 and winning 5. Manchester City away games have been low scoring by their standards with only 3 of the 8 matches delivering profits for over 2.5 goal backers.
City have dominated the Derby in recent times and they won 6-3 at home earlier in the season. Last season they did the double winning 4-1 at home and 2-0 on the road and you have to go back to March 2020 for the last time Manchester United beat Manchester City at home in the League, a 2-0 victory.

Manchester United 3/1
Manchester City 17/20
Suggested Bet: Manchester United win at 3/1
United are playing some good football at the moment and I can’t recall them going into a Derby in this sort of form over the last few seasons. Manchester City are getting the job done, but they have had a few shock defeats this season and I have a feeling that the red side of Manchester could be the one cheering at the end of this game.
Suggested Bet: Rashford, First Goal at 15/2
There are of course plenty of other markets on offer and I am going to have a stab at the in-form Marcus Rashford scoring the first goal at odds of 15/2.
