This is the 191st Manchester derby of which United have won 77 matches to City’s 60.


The Manchester rivals first faced each other in the old Division Two in England in November 1894. United won 5-2 at City before sealing the double over their neighbours with a 4-1 win in the return fixture in January 1985.


City have had by far the better of the results of late including defeating United in the FA Cup final last season on the way to emulating the domestic treble only their rivals, in 1999, had previously achieved.


This fixture last season resulted in a humiliating 6-3 defeat, although United did win at Old Trafford. That was not the case this season though, with City claiming a 3-0 win in the reverse fixture in October.

City won’t give up their ascendancy without a fight

On top of claiming the domestic treble last season, Manchester City also added the European Super Cup and Club World Cup to their haul by the end of 2023.


City manager Pep Guardiola says he knows this era of dominance on the blue side of Manchester will end eventually, but he’s determined it won’t be any time soon.


“In the ’80s it was Liverpool, the ’90s, it was United – now we are this many years, winning seven Premier League titles in the last 11, 12 years,” he said.


“It has happened, but in 50 or 60 years, there has never in one country been a club that dominates and controls everything, so we can try to extend for as many years as possible what we are trying to do.”


What a welcome! 🩵#ManCity

‘We have done it before against City’

Although not feasting at the top table, Manchester United have their own battles to fight and Champions League qualification is top of their agenda.


A home defeat by Fulham last weekend ended a seven-game unbeaten run, but United manager Erik ten Hag remains in a defiant mood.


“We are also on a good run. The spirit is very good,” he said.


“We have done it before against City, also against Liverpool. We will prepare well. The players are looking forward to it. I can smell it. I’m excited.


“We need a great day. We like the challenge and we are looking forward to the challenge with them.


“We know we have to give everything and show a team performance if we want to get the result. But if you do it, it is possible.”

Breaching the City goal will not be easy

Not only are Manchester United without their first-choice striker in Rasmus Hojlund but they also have to breach one of the Premier League’s meanest defences.


Only Liverpool and Arsenal (25 and 23) have conceded fewer than City’s 26 goals in this season.


No team has a better shutout record at home than Pep Guardiola’s side with only 11 goals conceded in 13 games.


City keeper Ederson is also joint top of the list for most clean sheets in their Premier League this season with eight shutouts.


United stopper Andre Onana isn’t too far behind having registered seven matches without conceding in the league. Only the top three teams have conceded fewer games on the road that season than United’s 16 in 13 games.


Jordan Pickford, David Raya and Ederson are now all tied on eight clean sheets this season! 🧀

The Belgium has laid on 11 goals compared with the 10 provided by Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez.

Stat attack – City

Manchester City are one game short of their record unbeaten home run under Pep Guardiola.


It’s 35 home matches in all competitions since City suffered defeat at home – 30 wins have been registered in that time.


The current longest run was set between 2016 and 2018.


They can also match another club record of scoring in 55 consecutive games in all competitions at home. The last time they did that was between 2012 and 2014.


A solitary strike will be enough to seal 600 goals in all competitions since Guardiola took charge in 2016. This will be his 455th game as City manager, of which he has won 330 and lost only 62.

Stat attack – United

Manchester United have lost only one of their last nine in all competitions, but the defeat last Saturday would be doubly painful – it was at home and it was in the Premier League.


The Reds returned to winning ways at Nottingham Forest on Wednesday, to keep alive their hopes of lifting a trophy this season, but the pressure of the Champions League race increased with the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford to Fulham last weekend.


United have doubled their goal tally for the Premier League season in the last eight games by netting 18 times.


Their slow start to this campaign leaves them only two short of their highest number of defeats in a Premier League season, 12, which was recorded in 2013-14 and 2021-22.

Catch me if you can

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland is City’s leading scorer by some margin.


The Norwegian international has netted 27 goals, as well as laying on six assists, compared with the 16 and 15 from Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez, respectively.


Haaland has netted 17 times in the Premier League, where five of the assists have also been registered, but has Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah hot on his heels with 15 goals.

Hojlund will be a big miss

Manchester United will be without the services of their injured striker Rasmus Hojlund.


The Dane has been in the best form of his short United career since arriving from Atlanta last summer and now has 13 goals in all competitions. Five of those goals came in four Premier League games in February.


United midfielder Scott McTominay is second on the list with eight goals followed by Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho, who have both scored seven.


Marcus Rashford is set to lead the line in Hojlund’s absence but only has five goals to his name this season.


The Premier League itself enjoyed an incredible month in February averaging 3.8 goals per game. Let’s hope for another bountiful affair at the Etihad.

‘We work to live these moments’

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola’s pursuit of perfection is never ending.


The domestic treble was capped with the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup in 2024.


Following the United game, City face a tough run of games as they continue their search for more silverware.


In the coming weeks, Guardiola’s team face title rivals Liverpool and Arsenal in the league, along with their Champions League last 16-second leg with Copenhagen on Wednesday.


“I prefer that than the opposite,” Guardiola said, on the challenge he faces in all competitions. “We have 20 key players. We have had key players out injured and still done well.


“So nice to play the fixtures. They are the best. A chance to get to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, then Anfield, a chance against Newcastle United [in the FA Cup] – we work to arrive here to live these moments.”

🗓️ 6 Mar: Champions League round of 16

Rashford hits back at critics

Marcus Rashford has come in for intense criticism this season which was heightened by a late-night excursion in Belfast before missing a training session the next day in January.


Manchester United issued a statement, saying Rashford had “taken responsibility for his actions” after meeting with manager Erik ten Hag.


The forward has hit back at critics this week via The Players Tribune, a sport media company that “provides athletes with a platform to connect directly with fans”.


Rashford wrote: “When I make a mistake, I’ll be the first one to put my hand up and say that I need to do better.


“But if you ever question my commitment to Man United, that’s when I have to speak up.”


Resilience 👊

Form guide

Manchester City’s season has picked up pace since their Club World Cup triumph in December. Pep Guardiola’s side have won 14 of their last 15 games and are undefeated in their last 18 games.


United had been on a seven-game undefeated run until Fulham’s surprise win at Old Trafford in the Premier League last weekend. Erik ten Hag’s side returned to winning way in the FA Cup in midweek by overcoming Nottingham Forest 1-0.

Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta is also up for the award, and looks like Guardiola’s more likely challenger with four wins from four league games in February – which included beating Liverpool and netting 14 goals in that time.

Mind the gap

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says the Premier League champions are ready for rivals Manchester United to try to “close the gap” ahead of Sunday’s derby match at the Etihad Stadium.


The near neighbours are separated by 15 points in the league with City battling to defend their title while United are struggling to keep pace in the race for Champions League qualification.


New minority owner at Old Trafford, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, laid out his plans to return the 20-time English champions to the summit when he completed his acquisition of 27 percent of the club’s shares this month, including re-establishing the pecking order in the city.


Ahead of Sunday’s match, Guardiola admits the recent change at United is likely to change matters.


“Sir Jim and others know the diagnosis of the club. If Sir Jim said they need two or three years to be there, who am I to say the opposite?” the manager said.


“I’m sure they will work to close the gap.”
