It’s safe to say that both managers will tinker with their teams for the midweek Champions League engagements, with Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola already focusing on Sunday’s big match.

Manchester United will be without the suspended Paul Pogba this weekend and it’s irrefutable that this renders the Red Devils a good deal weaker, with the Frenchman having aided and abetted fantastic wins away to Watford and Arsenal.

However, we’re still talking about seven consecutive wins at Old Trafford for Mourinho’s men, scoring twenty goals and conceding just the one.

While Phil Jones continues to be absent, Victor Lindelof is finding his feet for United and the performance of David de Gea at the Emirates was arguably the most outstanding goalkeeping display in Premier League history.

Romelu Lukaku is thriving for the Red Devils despite his “goal drought”, with Jesse Lingard enjoying a breakthrough season and the performance levels of Ashley Young have been a big positive for this team.

Manchester City are favourites with the bookies free bets to win the game and they have a sizeable gap at the top of the Premier League although recent performances against Huddersfield, Southampton and West Ham have been disjointed.

While all of the above matches have resulted in 2-1 wins, it’s been a struggle getting past obstinate opponents and the home side will be focused on shutting down their high-flying opponents.

Mourinho executed a game plan that stopped Liverpool scoring at Anfield and then ensured his team beat Tottenham 1-0. Fresh from a 3-1 win at Arsenal, we think that United can inflict a first defeat of the season on Manchester City.
