Man City vs Manchester United: Kick off time | prediction | TV | live stream | team news | h2h – preview today
Today is Manchester derby day, with Manchester City hosting Manchester United at Etihad Stadium.
City looked in good shape heading into the international break, while United has four wins in a row after overcoming a poor start but is still five points behind their local rivals.
Last season’s Manchester derbies were forgettable for United, with a 2-0 home defeat followed by a 4-1 thrashing at the Etihad, and City will be confident of another commanding performance, especially with the seemingly unstoppable Erling Haaland up top.

Man City vs Manchester United team news
John Stones will miss the derby after sustaining what seemed to be a hamstring injury earlier this week when playing for England against Germany.
Meanwhile, Aymeric Laporte has returned to training after knee surgery in the summer, albeit this weekend’s game is likely too soon. Kyle Walker is back in action for City, while Nathan Ake is the favorite to pair Ruben Dias in center defense ahead of Manuel Akanji.
Harry Maguire will undoubtedly miss out for United, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are racing against the clock to be fit for the trip to the Etihad.
In recent weeks, Donny van de Beek (knee), Martin Dubravka (thigh), and Brandon Williams have all been in the treatment room.
Man City vs Manchester United prediction
Manchester City appear to be in full swing this season, though who knows if an international break may interfere. Manchester United has recovered from a poor start, however their performances in the Europa League have been far from impressive.
Erling Haaland has scored in every but one game this season, and you wouldn’t bet against him adding to his tally in what will be his first Manchester derby on Sunday. The hosts have more than enough to put United to shame, but I expect it to be a competitive game.
Man City will triumph 3-1.
