With the Red Devils in dire straits, Al Hain-Cole expects Guardiola's high-flying team to take control of the title race with an emphatic victory

Manchester City can take a massive step towards retaining their Premier League title when they travel to Old Trafford to take on neighbours Manchester United on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola’s men are two points adrift of leaders Liverpool with a game in hand, meaning victory here would put them in firm control of the title race with just three matches left to play.

Latest odds

Having won each of their last 10 successive league games, they are priced at just 4/9 (1.44) with bet365 to move top of the table by coming out on top in their local rivals’ back yard.

The Red Devils have lost six of their last eight fixtures in all competitions, and are hefty 13/2 (7.50) outsiders to strike a major blow to their guests’ title bid with a shock win, or 4/1 (5.00) to even hold them to a draw.

Team news

Luke Shaw is available once again following suspension, while Ander Herrera could also be in contention after returning to training following injury.

Kevin De Bruyne is unlikely to feature after coming off injured in Saturday’s victory over Tottenham, with Claudio Bravo the only other injury absentee for the guests.

Superior City

While this clash may previously have been pinpointed as the most likely stumbling block standing between the Citizens and the title, it is hard to see them failing to collect maximum points on current form.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men come into this match on the back of a 4-0 thrashing by Everton at the weekend, the latest in a string of disappointing performances that has seen them concede 16 goals and score just six over the last eight games.

Predictions

Having run out convincing 3-1 winners in the reverse encounter back in November, odds of 11/10 (2.10) seem generous on City winning by at least two goals against a beleaguered United.

All odds correct at time of publish. Please gamble responsibly.
