If they thất bại this game, it’ll be the first time since November năm trước that they have lost four successive Premier League Manchester derbies.

Erik ten Hag is looking khổng lồ avoid becoming the first Man Utd manager to thất bại his first two matches against Manchester thành phố since David Moyes in 2013-14, but his adversary Pep Guardiola has never defeated a Manchester United manager twice in the same league season – both of his previous league doubles came against two different United coaches: versus José Mourinho & Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2018-19 and versus Solskjaer và Ralf Rangnick in 2021-22.

Previous Meeting

Manchester đô thị 6-3 Manchester United: 2 October 2022 (Premier League)

This derby match has a lot to live up to, following one of the all-time classic Manchester derbies earlier this season. The 6-3 win for Man thành phố at the Etihad Stadium on 2 October was the all-time highest scoring competitive Manchester derby match (nine goals).


This was the first time that Manchester đô thị scored six goals in a trang chủ game against Manchester United in all competitions, while the previous two instances of đô thị scoring six versus United came away from trang chủ (6-1 in January 1926 & 6-1 in October 2011).

Man Utd conceded six goals in a Premier League match for just the fourth time, with this the second time against Man đô thị (also 6-1 at Old Trafford in October 2011). Four of those goals came before half-time – the fourth time that they have conceded four first-half goals in a Premier League match since October 2020 (also versus Spurs in October 2020, Liverpool in October 2021 và Brentford in August 2022).


Quite ridiculously, this was the third successive Premier League trang chủ match that Erling Haaland had scored a hat-trick for Manchester City, becoming the first player to bởi vì this in the competition for any club.

Haaland wasn’t the only player khổng lồ score a hat-trick in this derby, with City’s Phil Foden also helping himself lớn three goals in the 6-3 win. These two hat-tricks doubled the number of Man thành phố trebles by players against Man Utd, after only previously scoring two of them via Francis Lee in December 1970 và Horace Barnes in October 1921.

Haaland and Foden’s hat-tricks saw Man city become just the third team lớn have two hat-trick scorers in the same Premier League match, after Arsenal vs. Southampton in May 2003 (Jermaine Pennant and Robert Pires) and Leicester city away at Southampton in their 9-0 win in October 2019 (Ayoze Pérez & Jamie Vardy).

Should thành phố repeat their success in this match, it’ll be the sixth time that they have completed the home win/away win double in the Premier League against United. This would be a new record for the most Premier League ‘doubles’ over the Red Devils since the introduction of the competition in 1992, beating Liverpool’s tally of five, which they currently share.

With city scoring six goals in this previous Premier League meeting with United, they could possibly break some records with another three goals in this match. Should they score at least three in this fixture, they’d break their own club record of most league goals scored against Man Utd in a single season (currently eight in 1954-55 – 3-2 at home, 5-0 away), while they’d also equal the Premier League record for most goals scored in a single season against the Red Devils (nine), set by Liverpool in 2021-22.

Anthony Martial scored two of United’s goals in this 6-3 defeat after coming off the bench as a substitute. Overall he’s scored five goals against Man city in the Premier League, his joint-record tally against a single club in the competition.

Recent Form

Manchester United enter this derby in great form. Since và including their win over Liverpool on 22 August, no team has won more points in the Premier League than Manchester United (35). They have won 11 of their 15 games in this time (D2 L2), which is a drastic change of fortune considering they’d lost their four league games before this.

In all competitions, United are on an eight-match winning streak, which is their best run since January 2019 in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first eight games in charge of the club (as caretaker, at that time). They haven’t won nine in a row since January 2017 under José Mourinho. The eight teams that United have defeated in this run – Aston Villa, Fulham, Burnley, Nottingham Forest, Wolves, Bournemouth, Everton and Charlton – aren’t quite of the calibre of Manchester City, however.

Erik ten Hag’s side have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League. The Red Devils haven’t kept four in a row since March 2021, but the last time that they kept four clean sheets và won every game was back in August 2017.

Ten Hag is on his second sequence of four successive Premier League wins as Manchester United boss, having also done so between August & September earlier this season. Ralf Rangnick never managed a four-game winning run in league competition as Man Utd boss, with their last winning run as long as this coming in April 2021 (five in a row) under Solskjær.

With 19 points from 21 available in their last seven Premier League matches at Old Trafford (W6 D1 L0), Man Utd enter this derby with their best home league size over a seven-game period since November 2017 (21/21 points).

Should Manchester City thua kém this match, they’ll already have equalled their tally of Premier League defeats from last season (three). They have dropped eight points in their last eight Premier League games (W5 D1 L2) – as many as they had given up in their previous 16 league matches before this run (W13 D3 L0).

Man Utd have scored in each of their last eight league matches, which is the best current run of any team in the 2022-23 Premier League. They last failed to score in their 0-0 draw at home to Newcastle United on 16 October and have since scored 14 times in their eight league games, while conceding just five.

The early Saturday lunchtime kick-off slot (12.30pm GMT) often springs surprise results, and Manchester City’s last such fixture was no different. Before the 2022 World Cup, they suffered a shock 2-1 trang chủ defeat to Brentford thanks to an Ivan Toney brace on the early Saturday timeslot, but before this game they did win their last nine consecutive 12:30pm Saturday fixtures.

This will be United’s third match in this specific timeslot on a matchday this season in the Premier League – the previous two have ended with 1-0 wins, against Southampton and Wolves respectively.

Players to lớn Watch

Manchester United: Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford poses the greatest threat to lớn Manchester City’s backline in this derby. He’s scored in each of his last six competitive appearances for Man Utd (seven goals – three in the Premier League, one in the FA Cup and three in the League Cup – including a brace in midweek versus Charlton Athletic), which is already his best-ever scoring run for United in all competitions. The is the first time that Rashford’s scored as many as seven goals over a six-game period for United in all competitions.
