Manchester United play Manchester City away next and with the improved form The Red Devils have shown this season, the chances the team has of pulling off a result don't look too bad.

Erik Ten Hag's side have won their last four Premier League games, including home matches against fellow traditional top six sides Arsenal and Liverpool. This is despite having an incredibly poor start to the season, after losing to Brentford and Brighton.

A former defender for United, Paul Parker, said the following to BetfredTV about the derby, which kicks off at 2 pm UK time on Sunday:

“Yes, the fans would definitely take a draw but the main thing for Manchester United is the performance. Don’t be overwhelmed, don’t be overrun and don’t be embarrassed by Manchester City. Manchester United need to go there and try and get something. I’d love to see what happens if they get the first goal.

“The same back four has to start this match. If they want to go there and get something then they can’t keep messing around with the defence. Raphaël Varane is going to want to play every game now and (Lisandro) Martínez has been a revelation since he’s arrived. 

He finished: "For Varane, Martínez is the Sergio Ramos he had at Real Madrid. That warrior next to him.”
