Man City – Manchester United: Little match coming up this weekend. The Manchester derby? Yeah, you might’ve heard of it (start time 11:30am ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
It’s a Pep Guardiola and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rubber match between the top team in the league and their second-place chasers, United 14 points back of City with 11 matches left this season.
The bosses have matched up seven times so far, including a scoreless draw in December at Old Trafford and City’s 2-0 win in the same venue during the League Cup semifinal on Jan. 6.
But United had won three-of-five meetings with City at the outset of Solskjaer’s tenure as Red Devils boss.
If City wins, they’ll hold a 17-point lead with only 30 more points left for United to claim this season.

Is this where the massive City winning streak ends? Maybe, but the unbeaten run would seem a bridge too far for United. It’s a little bit of straw grasping, but City’s incredible defense has allowed a goal in three of its last five matches. So maybe Dean Henderson stands on his head, Harry Maguire put his on a set piece, and United collects a point. But also probably not, unless Paul Pogba is ready to go. Man City 2-1 Manchester United.
