Manchester United and Manchester City go head to head in a Manchester derby this weekend that takes on a very different flavour to the last meeting between the pair in October.

United had gone into that game off the back of a good string of results that included wins over Liverpool and Arsenal. But it was still the very early stages of the Erik ten Hag project and City were themselves unbeaten in the Premier League.

As it was, City ran riot at the Etihad Stadium. Erling Haaland and Phil Foden had each scored twice by half-time and United only came back into it once both had completed hat-tricks and it was 6-1.

But fast forward to now, United are perhaps in the best shape they have been in at any point since Sir Alex Ferguson retired 10 years ago. City, for all that they have beaten Chelsea twice in quick succession have had a few wobbles and were dreadfully poor against Southampton on Wednesday.

Man Utd vs Man City score prediction

Manchester United have lost four out of the last five derbies and have conceded 10 times in the last two alone. But something feels different about them now and it could be the perfect opportunity to come up against a Manchester City side going through something of a mini-crisis.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Man City
