Live in-play betting – 

This may be the most important Manchester derby in recent times, with a top four place at stake this time.

Manchester City will come into this fixture with some pains after losing their FA Cup semifinal fixture to Arsenal.

Losing this game could see them lose ground in their bid to end the season in the top four.

They are currently on a good run of form domestically, which has seen them win their last 2 league games.

Their home form is even more impressive – they have won 3 of their last five home games in all competitions, drawing the remaining 2, and scoring at least 3 goals in those victories.

Manchester showed that there is life without Ibrahimovic when they defeated Burnley 0-2 away the last time out – the Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 6 matches and have won their last 3 league games.

Away from home, Manchester United have won 3 of their last 3 games, scoring at least 2 goals in each of those away wins.

As a matter of fact they seem to play better when they are away from Old Trafford, and they could set the Etihad stadium on fire in this fixture.

A win for Man City will see them topple Liverpool by 1 point, a win for Manchester United will see them draw level with Liverpool, however both teams would have played one game less than the Reds.
