January 14th 2023 - Manchester United vs Manchester City Prediction and Betting Tips

Manchester United will entertain arch-rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford in the 189th edition of the Manchester Derby on Saturday.

The hosts are on a four-game winning streak in the Premier League which has seen them climb to fourth place in the league table. In their previous outing, they overcame Bournemouth 3-0 at home thanks to goals from Casemiro, Luke Shaw, and Marcus Rashford.

Manchester City are unbeaten in their last three league outings and returned to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Chelsea last Friday.

The two teams endured contrasting fortunes in the EFL Cup as the hosts recorded a 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic and City fell to a shock 2-0 defeat to Southampton as they made an early exit from the competition.

This will be a crucial game in the title race and the top four race, thus both teams will be looking to put on a solid display.
