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.

Prediction

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.
