Ian Wright is tipping Manchester City to beat Manchester United in their derby meeting at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s men have been in devastating form in the Premier League over the past few months.

The Citizens have won 13 successive Premier League games to build an impressive eight-point lead at the top of the table.

Manchester City were 5-0 winners against Liverpool FC at The Etihad before a 3-1 victory over Arsenal in front of their home supporters.

The Citizens have also proven their title credentials on the road with a 1-0 win against defending Premier League champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United have lost to Chelsea and Huddersfield Town in the Premier League this season, while the Red Devils have dropped points in stalemates with Liverpool and Stoke City.

But the Red Devils secured a morale-booster with a 3-1 win against title rivals Arsenal in north London last weekend.

However, former Arsenal midfielder Wright is backing Manchester City to beat Manchester United on current form.

“I’m going to go with Man City to win. The way they’re playing,” Wright told The Debate on Sky Sports on Tuesday night.

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when the Red Devils secured their 13th top-flight crown under Sir Alex Ferguson.
