When Manchester United lost 2-0 at home to Burnley on Wednesday 22 January, the knives were out for the Red Devils and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The defeat came hard on the heels of a 2-0 defeat at Anfield and it apparently illustrated how the mighty had fallen.

However, the north-west giant have since embarked on an eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions and there have been five victories including triumphs at the Etihad Stadium and Stamford Bridge.

Admittedly, the victory over Manchester City wasn’t enough for United to overturn a 3-1 first leg deficit although it should be noted that Solskjaer’s team have now beaten the Citizens on two occasions this season.

The January acquisition of Bruno Fernandes has clearly boosted the squad and the Portuguese has hit the ground running since arriving from Sporting for nearly £50 million, with the midfielder having found the net in his past three matches.

Not that the Portuguese international has been hired principally for his scoring ability and he should add some cut and thrust in midfield, with the visitors sure to keep tabs on him throughout the ninety minutes.

Manchester City make the short journey to Old Trafford after a busy week which saw them play the EFL Cup final before an FA Cup clash against Sheffield Wednesday, while there’s a Champions League second leg tie against Real Madrid looming large on the horizon.

However, Pep Guardiola will field a strong team for the derby and understands the significance of this fixture. Having lost the reverse game at the Etihad Stadium, there will be plenty of focus despite the fact that City have no motivation left to win the title.

Aside from that blank drawn against United in the EFL Cup match, you have to go back to 6 October to find the last time that Manchester City failed to score a goal and we’ll therefore go down the “Yes” route at a tasty price here.
