Man City's 6-2 thrashing of Luton in the FA Cup on Tuesday night stretched the champions' unbeaten streak to 18 games in all competitions, with just four points dropped in a period that stretches back to the start of December. A goal for City today will equal the club's record of scoring in 55 consecutive home games, but considering Erling Haaland alone scored five against the Hatters in midweek you wouldn't bet against them finding the net more than once against their local rivals.

Man Utd have conceded a total of 10 goals in their last two visits to the Etihad, including a 6-3 drubbing in October 2022. If there's one stat that should encourage the red side of Manchester ahead of today's derby, however, it's that there's no fixture in the Premier League that's seen more away wins than this one. Will Erik ten Hag's side do Liverpool and Arsenal a favor in the race for the title?

Here's how the teams line up:

Man City XI: Ederson (GK); Walker, Stones, Dias, Ake; Rodrigo, De Bruyne; Bernardo, Foden, Doku; Haaland.

Man Utd XI: Onana (GK); Dalot, Varane, Evans, Lindelof; Mainoo, Casemiro; Fernandes, McTominay Garnacho; Rashford.
