Robbie Savage makes bold Manchester Derby prediction – United fans won’t like it

Manchester United’s ‘noisy neighbours’ Man City will enjoy the bragging rights on Sunday night.

That’s the verdict from Mirror Football columnist Robbie Savage, who is backing Pep Guardiola’s side to continue their scoring streak with an emphatic victory at the Etihad Stadium.

Champions City have scored 12 goals in their last two games, sweeping aside Southampton and Shakhtar Donetsk in the past seven days.

And Savage reckons they’ll cruise to victory on home turf once again on Sunday with a bold 4-1 prediction.

Guardiola’s side are top of the Premier League table and yet to lose.

They were defeated in this fixture last season, however, when United came from behind to deny City the early chance of winning the title.

Mourinho’s side are currently enjoying a three match unbeaten streak following wins over Everton , Bournemouth and Juventus .

If they were to repeat last season’s feat at the Etihad, they would reduce the gap behind pacesetters City to six points and enter the international break on a high.

Our man Savage, who fronts BT Sport’s Saturday Sav show, has looked into his crystal ball to predict the rest of this weekend’s results too.

Cardiff are the first in action this Saturday when they host Brighton .


Neil Warnock’s men are struggling towards the foot of the table with just one win. But Savage is tipping them to draw with Chris Hughton’s side in the lunchtime kick-off.

Tottenham travel to London rivals Crystal Palace in the late Saturday evening clash and former Wales international Savage reckons Mauricio Pochettino’s team will come out on top.

Liverpool open the Super Sunday proceedings when they entertain basement boys Fulham .

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic is under serious pressure and if Savage’s prediction comes true, it could tip the Serb closer to the exit door.

Unbeaten Chelsea , meanwhile, take on Everton at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal complete the Premier League action heading into the international break as they come up against Wolves .
