The 188th competitive Manchester derby will take place at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday, with Manchester City looking for a win to close the gap between them and league leaders Arsenal to just two points, before the Gunners face their own derby against Spurs on Sunday.

The omens look good for Man City, with no side defeating Man Utd more often in the Premier League at Old Trafford than they have (eight wins), while a victory in this game for Pep Guardiola’s side will see them defeat United for a record 19th time in the competition since it began in 1992, overtaking both Chelsea and Liverpool’s records of 18 wins versus the Red Devils.

Man Utd’s recent head-to-head record against City is terrible, with three successive defeats in the Premier League in which they’ve conceded 12 goals in total – the same tally of goals conceded as in their previous 12 meetings with City combined. If they lose this game, it’ll be the first time since November 2014 that they have lost four successive Premier League Manchester derbies.

Erik ten Hag is looking to avoid becoming the first Man Utd manager to lose his first two matches against Manchester City since David Moyes in 2013-14, but his adversary Pep Guardiola has never defeated a Manchester United manager twice in the same league season Рboth of his previous league doubles came against two different United coaches: versus Jos̩ Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in 2018-19 and versus Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick in 2021-22.

This match will bring up a significant milestone for Guardiola, with it being his 500th top-flight league game as a manager.

This Manchester derby will be his 246th game in the Premier League with Man City, adding to 152 with Barcelona in La Liga and 102 in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich. To date, Guardiola has won 379 of his 499 top-flight league games as a manager (76%), with this being both the most wins and the best win ratio of any manager to take charge of at least 100 games across the big five European leagues since his first campaign in 2008-09 at Barca.
