There will be fireworks as Man Utd and Man City head to head in the Manchester derby on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils quickly bounced back from a thrashing 5-0 loss to Liverpool, with the team beating Tottenham 3-0 in their last league outing.
Thanks to the win, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saved his job as Man Utd manager, with the team regaining much-needed confidence. As usual, the player to watch for in the home team is Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored in the 3-0 win over Spurs, while Paul Pogba remains sidelined through suspension.
The Citizens, on the other hand, suffered a humiliating 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in front of the home crowd.
Pep Guardiola's men aim to get back to winning ways as soon as possible, and seeing that they will also be on the way to victory at the Old Trafford clash, both teams to score betting options should be considered. Ilkay Gundogan pushed to start, while Ferran Torres remained in the recovery room.

Illustrating their bias towards fruitful matches, we have seen 20 goals in the previous 6 matches in which Manchester City have taken to the pitch, making it an average of 3.33 goals per game.

In the pool of available players, there is only one fitness issue that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has to pay attention to. Ferran Torres (Leg Injury) is out for this match.
