Today’s Premier League betting tips will focus on one of the most infamous rivalries in the cosmos. The Manchester Derby is always a feisty affair, however, on paper, this year’s meeting looks like it will only go one way. Manchester City go into this one on an almighty unbeaten run and are 14 points clear of their opponents.

Recent form analysis

Despite this, derby games often do not follow the script. That is why you should read on, as PlayersBest’s galaxy leading football experts predict how the match might turn out. We consistently compile the best Premier League betting tips Canada has to offer and this week is no different.

City are the Best Team in Europe

No team in recent memory has looked better placed to win a quadruple at this stage of the season than City right now. They are already in the Carabao Cup final, and the last eight of the FA Cup. On the continent, they also look good. A dominant Champions League round of 16 first leg, means they are heavy favourites to progress at the expense of Borussia Monchengladbach. Finally, in the Premier League, they look nigh-on unbeatable. City have won their last 21 games in all competitions and barring the most dramatic collapse, they will lift the title at the end of the season.

United Lacking Goals

Even though they possess attacking talent such as Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial, United have been impotent in front of goal when taking on their ‘Big Six’ rivals this season. Recent games against Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have all ended 0-0. This was also the scoreline when the Manchester rivals met earlier this term. City are imperious defensively, meaning United will need to work extremely hard in order to end this scoreless run. If they do accomplish this, the returning Edinson Cavani could be vital.

Head to Head

The Manchester Derby is one of the most anticipated fixtures in the entire cosmos. The first game took place in 1891 and out of the many previous meetings, United have historically fared better. Overall, the pair have met 184 times, with United winning 76 and City coming out on top on 55 occasions. Meanwhile, 53 have ended in a draw. Although United have enjoyed a clear edge overall, in more recent times, things have been a lot closer. Out of the last 10 games, City have won five to United’s four, while just one has ended even.

Our Betting Tip for Today

We are backing a City win and Phil Foden to score anytime.

City Will Earn Bragging Rights

Look, we just can’t look past City for this one. Not only are they on a 21, yes 21, game winning streak, the mercilessness of their recent displays also suggests that there is no whiff of complacency slipping in.

United are also far off the best at the moment. Without a goal in their last two, they have particularly struggled to break down their top four rivals this season. We do not expect this to change against City, who have the best defensive record in England.

That is not the only thing we are backing though. We also think you should consider betting on Phil Foden to score anytime. The England international has been very good in the big games this season and after sitting out City’s last two matches, he will be raring to go this Sunday.

Those wanting to back our tip should head over to Unibet. They are offering odds of 27/10, on a City win, Foden goal double.
