Six years ago Manchester City took a giant step towards the Premier League title with a 1-0 derby victory over Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium, in which Vincent Kompany scored the only goal. On Saturday they have the opportunity to secure the title itself if they can beat United at the Etihad and, as Kompany remarked, City’s determination to win will be matched by their neighbours’ determination to stop them.
It’s set up to be a remarkable occasion and it comes just five hours after the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. With a 16-point lead and only seven games left to play, Pep Guardiola’s side will win the title one way or another, but their supporters would dearly love it to be on Saturday evening. They are a best price of 8/13 with Bet365 and Betfred to get the three points they need, while United can be backed at 5/1 with BetVictor to spoil the party and become the first visiting team to win a league game at the Etihad this season.
