Both teams come into the contest on the back of progression to the FA Cup quarter-finals, as the Citizens beate Luton Town 6-2 before the Red Devils claimed a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest.

Man City sit second in the standings with a four-point gap to make to Liverpool after the Reds beat Nottingham Forest this Saturday, and after having their 11-game successful run snapped against Chelsea, Pep Guardiola’s side have responded with successive 1-0 league victories over Brentford and Bournemouth.

The Citizens’ unbeaten run across all competitions has now extended to 18 matches, and should Man City find the back of the net at least once in Sunday’s derby, they will equal their club record of scoring in an outrageous 55 home games running – a feat they previously achieved between January 2012 and January 2014.

While Man City will do their utmost to equal a club record on Sunday, Man United are out to avoid losing three successive Etihad matches for the first time in the Premier League era, having been humbled on their adversaries’ territory in 2021-22 and 2022-23.

Still on a collision course to potentially meet Man City in a repeat of the 2022-23 FA Cup final, beating Nottingham Forest was the perfect tonic to last weekend’s chastening 2-1 home defeat to Fulham in the league, where Alex Iwobi’s injury-time winner condemned the Red Devils to their 10th top-flight loss of the season after a steady period of progress.

Sixth place in the table belongs to Erik ten Hag’s side after 26 matches, but Aston Villa currently boast a healthy eight-point lead over Man United in the fourth and final Champions League spot and will momentarily increase their advantage to 11 should they beat Luton on Saturday night.

Man City vs. Man U Head to head

In the 168 previous meetings between these two teams, Man City have claimed 54 victories while Man United have won 66, and they have drawn in 48. Man United have scored 233 goals and conceded 239 in the process.

Mason Mount (calf), Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Anthony Martial (all knee), Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire (both unspecified) and Luke Shaw (muscle) will sit out this one.

Ten Hag is hopeful that Raphael Varane will be fine for this match after ‘fighting’ to play the full 90 in the FA Cup, and a recall in midfield should be on the cards for Kobbie Mainoo.
