#PickYourPunt @ 9/1

Double chance – Man Utd win or draw

As a United fan, perhaps this is too optimistic, but with City being 4/6 outright to win the game, I think there’s decent value in siding with United – double chance here.

Although the Red Devils’ performances this term are hard to ignore, they have enjoyed some success in this fixture recently, and won the Manchester derby at Old Trafford 2-1 last season. In addition, the home side in this fixture has won the last four league meetings between the sides.

United tend to play their best football when they play on the counter-attack, which they will surely do here as City will no doubt dominate possession. Guardiola’s side returned to winning ways against Brighton but their away form has been shaky recently, tasting defeat against Wolves and Arsenal, as well as losing away to Newcastle in the Carabao Cup.

Erling Haaland to score anytime

The Norwegian superstar has scored 11 goals in 14 games across all competitions so far this campaign, including nine in nine in the Premier League.

He scored a hat-trick against United last season at the Etihad, and with the defensive problems Erik ten Hag’s side are currently experiencing, it seems silly not to tip the former Borussia Dortmund man to score on Sunday.

It feels like his goalscoring prowess has slipped under the radar this season (or perhaps taken for granted), but he’ll probably end up with 50-odd goals across all competitions come the end of the campaign.

Bruno Fernandes to be carded

The Manchester United captain tends to wear his heart on his sleeve, and currently leads the caution column for the Red Devils, picking up three so far in the Premier League.

The Portuguese midfielder was awarded 12 cards in all competitions for the Red Devils last season, and is no stranger to receiving the yellow card, with many of them being awarded for dissent.

Throw a Manchester derby into the mix and it’s easy to see why Fernandes could find himself in the referee’s book on Sunday, as City will look to frustrate him and stifle his creative output.
