Manchester City and Manchester United will meet in the Manchester Derby later today with more than pride at stake.

Both sides have made sluggish starts to the season although the ultra-competitive nature of the league means that after 9 games the clubs sit third and 8th respectively with just four points between them.

In fact United’s start, which sees them 10 points off leaders Chelsea, is there worst ever in a premier league season after 9 games, one less than what David Moyes managed last season at this stage.

Get Man City at 5/1 to win OR Man Utd at 14/1 below!

City have been the dominant force in this fixture in recent season and a win on Sunday would see them claim four successive wins over United for the first time since 1970. City have won five and lost just one of the last six Premier League Manchester derbies.

City have been dealt a huge blow ahead of the clash with the new that David Silva has been ruled out.

The Spanish playmaker has arguably been one of the most impressive City performers this season however he is expected to be out for 3 to 4 weeks after hurting his knee in the Capital One Cup loss to Newcastle midweek.

While Silva is out, Yaya Toure, a goal scorer in three of his last four Premier League appearances against United is expected to be fit to play.

United meanwhile will have Wayne Rooney back in contention.

The top scorer in Manchester derbies, both overall and in the Premier League with 8 goals, has been suspended for the last three games and did not play for his club in October.

Whether or not the club captain starts remains to be seen especially as Robin Van Persie scored a dramatic late equaliser against Chelsea last time out while Radamel Falcao, missing last weekend through injury but expected back, opened his account for the club in the recent win over Chelsea.
