An historic occasion is upon us as Manchester City can clinch their third Premier League title against arch rivals Manchester United. The 176th Manchester derby takes place at the Etihad Stadium, and while it’s appeared to be only a matter of time for Pep Guardiola’s men to claim their third league title in six years, very little could be sweeter than to achieve that feat against the red side of Manchester.
Our Manchester City v Manchester United odds preview shows City are favourites to do just that. The Blues haven’t lost on home soil all season, and have won 14 of their 15 league games at the Etihad, scoring an incredible 51 goals in the process. There could be more value in looking at other markets for this one.

With the chance for City to win the league, though, it wouldn’t be wrong to expect a few cards in this one. The reverse fixture back in December saw City run out 2-1 winners, with six yellows shown, adding to the 16 and 1 red shown in the previous five meetings.
