Phil Neville believes Manchester United could sneak a win against Manchester City at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils will welcome the Premier League leaders to the Theatre of Dreams as Jose Mourinhio’s men look to halt Manchester City’s winning run.

The Citizens are looking to record their 14th successive Premier League win following a 2-1 win against West Ham United at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Manchester City are unbeaten in the Premier League this term and Pep Guardiola’s men can set a new record if the Citizens beat Manchester United.

Mourinho’s side will be hoping to end Manchester City’s impressive run and move to within five points of the runaway leaders to gain some ground in the title race.

Manchester United were brilliant 3-1 winners against title rivals Arsenal last weekend thanks to goals from Antonio Valencia and Jesse Lingard.

Former Red Devils defender Neville is backing Manchester United to “sneak a win” against Manchester City at Old Trafford this weekend.

“I’ve got a sneaky feeling for Man United. I really have. I don’t know why,” Neville told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“I think this could be the game where Man City drop points. I have a sneaky feeling Man United could get a draw or sneak a win.”

Manchester United lost 2-1 to Guardiola’s Manchester City side in their last derby meeting at Old Trafford last season.
