Manchester United will look to pick up a derby win over Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend.

The two sides will meet on the 6th of November at 12:30 pm BST.

Manchester United bounced back from their three-match winless run in the league with a win over Tottenham last time out and they will be looking to build on that result here. The Red Devils are in fifth place right now and a team of their stature should be aiming higher. 

Manchester City crashed to a 2-0 defeat at home to Palace last time out and they will look to bounce back strongly with a win in the Manchester derby.

Manchester United vs Manchester City prediction

Manchester United have done reasonably well against City in recent seasons. They are unbeaten in five of their last six meetings against Pep Guardiola’s side and it will be interesting to see if they can extend that run this week.

The Red Devils are under pressure after the defeat to Liverpool and they cannot afford another embarrassing defeat at home to their rivals. The home team will be fully motivated and they could grind out a win here. 

Prediction: Manchester United win.
