Manchester City will be hoping to rediscover their cutting edge when they travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United in Saturday’s Premier League clash.
Pep Guardiola’s men have drawn a blank in the two most recent derby matches and come into this one with just three goals to their name in ther last four away league matches.

The manager has confirmed that Sergio Aguero is unfit to start despite coming off the bench to score against Marseille in midweek, yet remains bet365’s 7/2 (4.50) favourite to break the deadlock and 20/21 (1.95) to strike anytime.
Teammate Raheem Sterling is yet to score in 20 career appearances against the Red Devils but is priced just behind the Argentina international at 11/10 (2.10) to finally end that unwelcome record here.
Gabriel Jesus is available at 5/4 (2.25) to add to his three goals in all competitions this term as he deputises for Aguero, while Kevin De Bruyne represents potentially tempting value at 15/8 (2.88) after scoring last week against Fulham.
Attacking has been less of an issue than defending for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, who have failed to fire in just two of their 16 fixtures this campaign but kept only five clean sheets – scoring 13 goals and conceding 10 in the five most recent matches.
On target in three of his last five games, Marcus Rashford is on offer at 15/2 (8.50) to open the scoring against the local rivals and priced at a generous 11/5 (3.20) to merely add to his four career derby goals.
However, Bruno Fernandes looks an even better bet at that same 11/5 (3.20) anytime price considering he has struck 11 times from just 14 starts in all competitions this season – grabbing five goals in the last six fixtures.
United will be hoping Anthony Martial can pass a late fitness test given his productive record in recent derbies, with the Frenchman a 2/1 (3.00) shot after scoring three times in his last four starts against City.
Mason Greenwood has struggled to win Solskjaer’s confidence this season but is available at 3/1 (4.00) to make a big statement with a goal against the local rivals.
