Manchester City host Manchester United for the first Manchester derby of the 2022/23 Premier League season on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's hosts and reigning champions haven't been blemish-free on their start to the campaign but remain unbeaten and boast the best goal tally in the division. Erik ten Hag has steered his Manchester United side of the slide which began their season, overseeing four consecutive top-flight victories before the Queen's death and funeral saw their last two league fixtures postponed.

Here's everything you need to know about the meeting between two in-form outfits ahead of the 188th Manchester derby.

Man City team news

Kalvin Phillips didn't join up with the England squad during the international break as he underwent surgery on his shoulder after repeatedly dislocating the joint, leaving his World Cup spot at risk. John Stones did turn out for Gareth Southgate's side but sustained a hamstring injury against Germany.

Aymeric Laporte returned to training before the international break but isn't expected to be tossed straight back into Premier League action after two months on the sidelines.

Man Utd team news

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have both trained ahead of the weekend and could yet be involved, despite earlier looking like major doubts. Harry Maguire returned from international duty with another blunder on his gaff-reel and a hamstring strain and won't be involved.

Backup goalkeeper Martin Dubravka also picked up a fitness concern while representing his country while Donny van de Beek was nursing a knock going into the club hiatus.

Man City vs Man Utd score prediction

City convincingly swatted aside their Manchester rivals home and away last term. However, Ten Hag has implemented a raft of changes to ensure his iteration of United isn't as amiable an opponent as Ralf Rangnick's.

At times this term, United have recalled the counter-attacking verve from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign, clinically slicing through Arsenal in their most recent Premier League outing with the transitional threat which has wounded Guardiola's City in the past.

Although, as Ten Hag himself is at pains to point out, 'there is a lot of room for improvement' at Manchester United. City themselves aren't entirely infallible, but do arrive as favourites for what could be an enthralling contest.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 Man Utd
