The Red Devils are striving for their fifth consecutive league victory and have the capability to compete with Pep Guardiola’s team in front of their home crowd.

With Marcus Rashford’s recent success in scoring goals, the opposing defense will need to keep a close eye on him.

Jadon Sancho is still recovering from injury but is the only expected absence for the home team.

On the other side, City recently defeated Chelsea 4-0 in the FA Cup’s fourth round and are now looking to put pressure on the league-leading Arsenal.

With Erling Haland leading City’s attacking force, it’s worth considering the option of both teams scoring in the game.

Haland is back in the starting lineup, but Ruben Dias is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Manchester United will be motivated to seek revenge for their 6-2 loss to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in October, where Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick and added two assists.

Despite Manchester City’s four wins in the last five Manchester derbies. Manchester United is in better form and may be able to take advantage of City’s current issues.
