How to pick up up to £200 in free bets on Manchester Utd (5/2) v Manchester City (6/5)
United will welcome Manchester City to Old Trafford looking to avenge their 4-1 defeat to their cross-city rivals earlier in the season.
Both sides will head into the game in good form with United following up their Champions league win over Olympiakos with a 2-0 win over West Ham while City showed they were back to their prolific best as they smashed five past struggling Fulham at the Etihad.
With both sides in decent form Tuesday’s clash promises to be an exciting affair, especially as the Red Devils will be out to dent the title hopes of their neighbours.
To do that they have to score without Robin Van Persie with the Dutchman set for another spell on the sidelines with the knee injury sustained against Olympiakos.
The absence of RVP means that Rooney will be pushed further upfront, just as he was in the weekend game against West Ham.
On that occasion Rooney scored two goals, the second a stunning volley from the half way line and the player admitted after the game that the team is growing in confidence.
“The win on Wednesday night against Olympiakos gave us all a big lift and you can see today the confidence is running through the team. It was a good victory and I’m really pleased with that” the England striker said.
“I think the Olympiakos result was massive for us in terms of picking the fans up, picking ourselves up after the defeat to Liverpool.
“Today we played some lovely football. We’re a bit disappointed not to take more chances to make the game a bit easier.
“Overall, we played some good stuff, we defended excellently and I thought Michael Carrick at the back, in such a difficult game, was outstanding for us, so there are lots of positives from today.”
Moyes could decide to add pace to his forward line with Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez, back after injury, possible additions to the side.
Patrice Evra is also in line to return after being rested at the weekend while Portuguese winger Nani is also ready to play.
Ryan Giggs come could in for 962nd United appearance following his superb showing in the Champions League while Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans will be assessed before the game.
City meanwhile are set to have their inspirational captain Vincent Kompany back after he missed the win over Fulham with one of Martin Demichelis and Joleon Lescott likely to make way.
Sergio Aguero will once miss out while Edin Dzeko will be in the squad after missing the weekend win though illness.
