Both Teams will be Desperate to Secure all 3pts on Saturday
Man Utd continued their good form in the Premier League with an away win at another of the league's in-form sides, West Ham. United found themselves behind at the break following a 38th-minute effort from Soucek but managed to turn the game in their favour. Pogba found the back of the net in the 65th-minute, in a rare appearance for the French international, to make it 1-1. Young talent Mason Greenwood put the visitors 2-1 up just 3-minutes later and with 12-minutes left to play, Rashford netted a third goal to ensure that all 3pts would return to Old Trafford.
Man City would have been expecting a comfortable home win when Fulham came to town and in the end, they claimed a 2-0 victory, but it could and should have been more. When Sterling netted after just 5-minutes Fulham must have feared they were in for a hammering. The visitors gave away a penalty shortly before the half-hour mark which De Bruyne coolly despatched to make it 2-0. However, this was where the scoring stopped. City didn't make any substitutions during the 90-minutes but certainly could have done with some fresh legs in the second half.
Man Utd head into this weekend's big match as the clear form favourites. The hosts have won five of their last six games in all competitions, losing just once against PSG in the Champions League. United have beaten Everton, West Brom, Southampton, West Ham and Basaksehir during that period.
Man City have picked up three wins from their last six outings against Fulham, Burnley and Olympiakos, but were held to draws by Liverpool and Porto, and lost away at Tottenham. Still, only 1pts separates the two clubs and each will fancy their chances of winning and moving further up the table on Saturday.
Head to Head Record
The hosts have certainly enjoyed recent Manchester Derbies more than Man City, with United claiming three wins from the duo's last five encounters in league and cup. United have won each of the last two Premier League meetings between the pair, with the scoreline ending 2-0 in their favour at Old Trafford back in March. Of their last 159 encounters, Man Utd lead the head to head record with 64 wins, 47 draws, and 48 defeats.
Phil Jones remains sidelined with a knee injury, Anthony Martial isn't expected to return to action in time to face City and Edinson Cavani also misses out.
The visitor's only major injury concern is over Sergio Aguero who has been struggling with a knee injury this season and surely won't be rushed back for Saturday's clash.

Double Chance: Man Utd or Draw
Man Utd have had the better over Man City over the last year or so, picking up three wins from the duo's last four meetings since December 2019. United have beaten their local rivals in each of the pair's last two league meetings and beat them in the away leg of their League Cup encounter, although, City won the tie on aggregate. The hosts have won five of their last six matches in all competitions and have really turned a corner since defeating Everton away in November. Man City have dropped points in three of their last six matches in league and cup and are yet to find their best form.
Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals
Three of the last six Manchester Derbies have ended with under 2.5 goals being scored, which includes the pair's last two encounters. despite beating Burnley 5-0 last month, Man City have been involved in plenty of low-scoring games of late with five of their last six matches in all competitions producing under 2.5 goals. Derbies tend to be tight and tense affairs at the best of times and with both teams failing to start the season as expected, Saturday's clash is bound to be a nervy affair for both sets of fans.
Anytime Goalscorer: Marcus Rashford
Marcus Rashford is enjoying a fine season in front of goal for the Red Devils. The Wythenshawe born striker has netted 3-goals in the Premier League, 1-goal in the League Cup and is the joint-top goalscorer in the Champions League with 6-goals. Rashford has scored 2-goals in his last four appearances against Man City and was on target in United's last Premier League game away at West Ham.
