It has been a challenging start to the 2023-24 season for Man United, as the Red Devils have suffered six defeats across matches in the Champions League and Premier League. However, things are beginning to look up for the Red Devils, as they have won each of their last three across all competitions.
Man City currently sits second in the league standings, but they have landed seven victories from their opening nine matches this term. Pep Guardiola’s side ended a three-game losing run in domestic matches last weekend, as they gained a hard-fought success at the Etihad against Brighton.
United will take confidence from the fact that they came from behind to win the derby at Old Trafford last season. However, they haven’t landed back-to-back home wins against City since winning three on the bounce in the Premier League between 2008 and 2011. It will take a season-best performance to gain maximum points on Sunday.
No side has landed more Premier League victories at Old Trafford than Man City, with seven of their eight wins coming on their previous 12 visits. In fact, since the start of the 2011-12 season, City have landed victories in 13 of their 24 league matches against United, which is more than any other side over that period.

Emotions will be high at Old Trafford, as the Theatre of Dreams will honor Sir Bobby Charlton on Sunday. United’s performances have improved in recent weeks, and a huge chance could be taken on the Red Devils to land maximum points against their rivals this weekend.
