Man Utd v Man City predicted lineups and match preview

Manchester United and Manchester City meet in the Premier League at Old Trafford this weekend.

To be played on Sunday 12th April 2015 at 16:00. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Odds: Man Utd 17/10, Draw 11/5, Man City 15/8

The Manchester derby is upon us once again as Manchester United and Manchester City lock horns at Old Trafford.

The previous meeting between the two teams ended in a 1-0 win for City back in October, with Sergio Aguero snatching a second half winner against ten man United.

Whilst United were patchy under Louis van Gaal back then, the Red Devils have now hit their stride with the Dutchman in charge.

Five wins in a row for a resurgent United have seen them leapfrog City into third place, with the form of midfielder Ander Herrera a big factor in their recent performances.

City have lost three of their last five Premier League games, and their poor run of form has piled the pressure on manager Manuel Pellegrini.

With their title challenge effectively over, City will want to claim bragging rights over their rivals with a win at Old Trafford.

Vincent Kompany faces a late fitness test, whilst Wilfried Bony is expected to miss the game through injury, which could leave Sergio Aguero to lead the line on his own.
