Plenty will host opinion on whether United, with Pogba now out of the game due to his questionable sending off against Arsenal on Saturday evening, can beat the rampant City, although they have had a few wobbles themselves recently, needing very late goals to see off West Ham, Southampton and Huddersfield.

But, as always, UK bookmakers will give plenty of guide and insight into the game, as they look to tempt punters of all footballing persuasions to have a little vested interest in what is sure to be a fascinating game.

Such has been the dominance and power of Manchester United at Old Trafford, that it is quite startling to note that the Manchester-City 5/2 currently on offer to win Sunday’s huge game is the biggest price that any bookmaker has gone on a United victory at home in the Premier League since they were on offer at 12/5 back in 2005, when they took on the record breaking Chelsea team who arrived at the Theatre of Dreams on the back of an unbeaten 40 match league run.

For the record, Manchester United won that game 1-0.

City are made favourites for the fixture, though are also odds against (on average being offered at 23/20) to take three points from their nearest and bitterest rivals.

For the faithful Red Devils fans who remain convinced their team will rise to the occasion and hand City their first bitter pill of defeat to swallow on Sunday evening, never have you had a better time to put your money where your heart is and get over 2 to 1 on your stake for seeing your side win at home.
