Is Manchester United vs Man City on TV today? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Manchester City head to Old Trafford knowing victory over Manchester United will likely spell the end of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign.

The beleaguered head coach earned a short reprieve after United defeated Tottenham, leading to Antonio Conte succeeding Nuno Espirito Santo in north London.

However, familiar problems were plain to see once again as Cristiano Ronaldo rescued a draw against Atalanta in midweek, and United will have to contend with several issues in defence, too, with Raphael Varane ruled out, Harry Maguire out of form, and Victor Lindelof a doubt.

There were no such problems for Manchester during the week as they regained their momentum with a 4-1 victory over Club Brugge, ending a difficult run of their own after being stunned 2-0 at home by Crystal Palace in the league last weekend.

Predicted line-ups

United: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Rashford, Ronaldo.

City: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, Gundogan, Silva, Foden, De Bruyne, Grealish

What are the odds?

United – 15/4

Draw – 3/1

City – 4/6

Prediction

United will surely be galvanised by the occasion and their home fans but may struggle in defence, with City’s movement, Maguire’s loss of form and Varane’s injury. City’s quality should tell over the 90 minutes, even if Ronaldo could well take centre stage again. United 1-2 City.
