LAST TIME OUT

City booked our place in the FA Cup quarter-finals with a hard-fought 2-0 fifth-round victory away to Peterborough United.

The Posh belied their standing at the foot of the Championship to prove tough and resourceful opponents before second half goals from Riyad Mahrez and Jack Grealish sealed our ticket through to the last eight.

FORM GUIDE

That London Road success extended the impressive record of Pep Guardiola’s side to 21 wins from our last 24 matches in all competitions.

United were held to a goalless draw at home to Watford in their last encounter and currently sit fourth in the Premier League table.

However, United have an impressive recent record at the Etihad, having won on their last three visits here.

PREVIOUS MEETING

An Eric Bailly own goal and a Bernardo Silva strike rounded off a superb all-round display as City secured what was a dominant 2-0 derby win at Old Trafford back in November.

Guardiola's men were at their imperious best that day and arguably could have won by an even greater margin of victory.
