Manchester City will be looking to equal an 89-year-old derby record against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester City will be looking to equal an 89-year-old derby record against Manchester United when they face their bitter rivals in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Pep Guardiola's side again fell 25 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool on Saturday and although the title appears to be beyond them this season, they will be determined to triumph at Old Trafford.

United have actually lost their last three home games against City in all competitions, twice in the Premier League, in addition to a 3-1 reverse in the EFL Cup earlier this season.

Only on one previous occasion have the Citizens won four successive matches at Old Trafford, which occurred between January 1926 and February 1931.

Saturday's results have seen United drop into seventh position in the Premier League table, 15 points behind their rivals heading into Sunday's contest.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have already beaten City twice this season, though, winning 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League before a 1-0 victory in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final.
