Man Utd vs Man City prediction, preview, lineups, TV

For the fourth time this season, Manchester United and Manchester City will block the horns in another delicious derby.

Despite City's dominance in recent years, it was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side that has had the most success in this blockbuster match lately, scoring two wins in the last three games.

The Norwegian will desperately try to make this campaign a hat-trick against the club's bitter rivals, but Pep Guardiola is a renowned perfectionist and doesn't show complacency when his stars travel to Old Trafford.

So can Solskjaer change the dynamics in the northwest and win three wins over City in one season? Or will Guardiola complete another tactical master class and reclaim the boastful rights?

To see one

Man Utd: Bruno Fernandes

The Portuguese had an immediate impact and is already essential for Solskjaer and the club's efforts this season. At first glance, Fernandes is an archetypal Guardiola player in almost every department, from his movement to his technique. But it's the red and black shirt that Fernandes wears, and he could prove the difference if these two teams meet each other this weekend. If so, we could see a further increase in Fernandes shares in the Football Index.

Bruno Fernandes Football Index Value March 2020: £ 7.47 (Sell) – – £ 8.03 (buy)

Key statistics: Fernandes was directly involved in five goals in his first six appearances at Man Utd.

Man City: Sergio Aguero

When City struggled to destroy Sheffield Wednesday's parked bus on Wednesday evening, it was Aguero who grabbed the game by the neck and broke the dead end. So many times the Argentine has been the man who came to the aid of City, and he's likely to play a leading role this weekend in Old Trafford, a stadium he's had success over the years.

Key statistics: In five games at Old Trafford throughout his career, Aguero has found the end point four times on the net.

Squawka prediction

Man Utd have been unbeaten for nine games, including a 1-0 win over City in the semi-finals of the League Cup. During this time, however, there were one or two nervous moments, especially against Club Brugge, Wolves and Everton. A city squad that will be confident after beating Real Madrid and the recent triumph at Wembley may find it difficult to keep up.

Scoreline forecast: Man Utd 1-3 Man City
