Nani to score at any time against City – 5/2

The Portuguese winger will be hoping to repeat his Community Shield heroics, when he scored twice to help United come from behind to win 3-2 in August. Nani was also instrumental in United’s 2-1 victory in this fixture last season, scoring the Red Devils’ first and setting up Wayne Rooney to score that bicycle kick. He has netted five times so far this season and will be eager to continue his good form on Sunday.

Over 2.5 goals in Manchester United v Manchester City – 7/10

The Tipster has a good feeling about this one. Since City’s expensive transformation, their clashes with United at Old Trafford have been full of goals. United’s spectacular 4-3 victory courtesy of Michael Owen’s last-gasp winner springs to mind – and the two sides’ last five meetings at the Theatre of Dreams have averaged 3.8 goals. All that makes over 2.5 on Sunday a more than a solid call.

Less than 5.5 cards at Old Trafford – 8/13

Mark Clattenburg will be the man in black for this one, and the Tipster reckons he’s largely likely to keep his cards in his pocket. The Durham referee dished out a paltry 3.1 cards per game last season – significantly less than the league average. And the last time he took charge of this fixture he showed four yellows during a 1-0 win for city in 2007.

Both Man Utd and Man City to score – 4/7

City are the league’s top scorers with 27 goals in eight games, while United have scored just two less than their Noisy Neighbours. There have been no goalless draws in these two side’s last five meetings – and United have scored in every match, managing just one clean-sheet. The Tipster is backing neither to keep one on Sunday.

The long shot: Manchester United to win from a losing position – 7/1

United have a habit of coming from behind and nicking the win, as they did in this season’s Community Shield. So today’s audacious attempted lob from the half-way line is for the Red Devils to win from a losing position on Sunday. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are famous for their never-say-die attitude and have no issues coming from behind on the big occasions – and City’s impressive strike force means they will always threaten to the lead at Old Trafford.
