Manchester City will be looking to pile on the misery on their archrivals Manchester United following the Red Devils’ exit from the Champions League earlier this week.
With the Citizens having already qualified for the knockout stages, manager Pep Guardiola will rest his key players for the Marseille game ahead of the Manchester derby on Saturday evening.
In terms of team news, the only injury doubt for City is Sergio Aguero (knee), who could well be on the bench this weekend if he makes it through a fitness test.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Face United:
Ederson, Walker, Stones, Dias, Cancelo, Rodri, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to have Edinson Cavani (knock) and Anthony Martial (groin) back in contention for Saturday’s game, but Phil Jones (knee) remains unavailable.
Manchester United’s Predicted XI
Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Greenwood, Cavani, Rashford
The bookmakers have City as the favourites with Unibet pricing them at 4/5 for the win. A draw is 3/1 with William Hill while a United victory is currently 7/2 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 3-0 to City
