Manchester City v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 3/3/2024

Manchester City v Manchester United betting tips

Premier League high-fliers Man City welcome their city rivals Man United to the Etihad on Sunday, so we’ve previewed it in our free Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Tips 3/3/2024. The Citizens continue to impress in their incredible unbeaten run that now stretches back to mid-December. Man United have shown plenty of improvements in all competitions recently. But Erik Ten Hag’s side lacks the consistency to challenge for the title. Both sides have something to play for in the Manchester derby, with City gunning for the title and United aiming for the top four. This clash kicks off at 4:30 p.m. It will be shown live on Sky Sports.

Form and Team News

Man City come into this rivalry match unbeaten in 21 consecutive matches and has won 19. Pep Guardiola’s side bounced back from a 1-1 home draw with Chelsea to win their following three matches. Victories came over Brentford and Bournemouth (1-0) in the Premier League, before a 6-2 victory at Luton in the FA Cup. Man United were undefeated in seven, winning six, before a shock 2-1 home defeat to Fulham on Saturday. Ten Hag’s side hit back in mid-week though with a 1-0 FA Cup triumph at Nottingham Forest.

The pre-match team news shows that City will be without Jack Grealish, while Josko Gvardiol is doubtful. Man United have a few more injury concerns in their ranks. Rasmus Hojlund, Anthony Martial, Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount, Lisandro Martínez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw are out.

Match Winner Bet Tips

Even though Man City and Man United head into this Manchester derby in solid form, one side is heavily backed by the bookmakers. Ultimately, United continue to show weakness, as they did in the defeat to Fulham last weekend. In addition, the Red Devils have lost their last three games at the Etihad, conceding 12. Things are looking bleak for Ten Hag’s side again at the Etihad, and the odds reflect United’s underdog status. At 10/1, Betfred has the best odds for an away success. However, a draw for the Red Devils could be a better selection, as the visitors have won their last six away. Also, City did drop points at home to Chelsea recently, and Guardiola’s side weren’t at their best in that contest. A stalemate could be a better value pick, and William Hill is offering 11/2 for a Manchester derby draw. Our tip this weekend though is to stick with rampant Man City. The Citizens don’t appear to be slowing down, as 14 wins from 15 shows. City are also near full strength with their squad and another home win is expected at the Etihad. Currently, bet365 has the best odds for a fourth consecutive City win at 2/7. 

Over 3.5 Goals Betting

If previous Manchester derbies are anything to go by, then goals are likely to come on Sunday. The last five clashes between these rivals have produced 23 goals – more than four per game. City were also in full swing at Luton in mid-week, putting six past the Hatters. United have also been amongst the goals lately, as six of their last seven in all competitions have produced three or more total goals. Our pick in the goals market is to go high and back over 3.5 goals in the Manchester derby. At evens, BetUK has decent potential returns for over 3.5. 

Anytime Goal Scorer Betting Tips

Goals could be frequent in Manchester this Sunday, and picking a goalscorer from each side could produce additional value. Firstly, a decent outside bet is to go for United’s Scott McTominay. The Scottish international has scored twice in his last three Premier League away matches and has seven league goals for the season. With bet365 offering 8/1 odds for a McTominay anytime strike, there could be good value to come on the Scot. The clear goalscorer choice this weekend is City’s Erling Haaland. Against Luton, the towering Norwegian was back to his absolute best, netting five goals. The City striker now has eight goals in seven since his return from injury. As a result, we are tipping more Haaland strikes against United and bet365 is offering 8/13 odds here.
