Manchester United vs Manchester City Head to head

Manchester United vs Manchester City Prediction
Man United cannot afford to lose in front of their own fans against Man City after being humiliated by fierce rivals Liverpool the last time they played at Old Trafford.
The visitors are anticipated to enjoy more possession of the ball, but it might work in Man United’s favor, as they have plenty of speed up front and could catch Man City off guard.
Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, is likely to decide the outcome of this match. Over the last week, the United striker has returned to his greatest form, netting a brace in the Champions League against Atalanta to follow up his goal against Tottenham.
It would be unsurprising to see Ronaldo score on such a significant occasion, and betting on him to score at any point is a good bet here.

Manchester United vs Manchester City Team News :
United are still missing Paul Pogba, who is serving the second of a three-game domestic ban this weekend, while Raphael Varane, who suffered a hamstring injury in midweek, has been ruled out for a month.
Solskjaer may not be able to pitch the three-man rearguard that was so effective against Spurs due to Victor Lindelof’s injury, but the Swede is expected to recover.
This week, Fred, Cavani, and Mason Greenwood will all be in contention for first-team recalls, with Rashford perhaps losing out as Solskjaer makes room for the two veterans in the final third.
Meanwhile, City have already revealed that Ferran Torres will be out for at least another month, while Laporte will join Pogba on the naughty step after his red card against Palace, and Kyle Walker is a doubt due to a foot problem.
As a result, John Stones, who scored an own goal in midweek, is expected to join Ruben Dias in defense this week, while Kevin De Bruyne, who had a 15-minute cameo against Brugge, is expected to return to the starting XI.
With Sterling still without a goal against Man United after 23 outings, Foden should continue to be the main focus of City’s attack with Jesus and Jack Grealish.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Bailly, Lindelof, Maguire; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Shaw; Fernandes; Ronaldo, Cavani
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Jesus, Foden, Grealish
