How to watch Man United vs Man City: Stream the Manchester Derby and listen for free

Watch Man United vs Man City: The Manchester Derby kicks-off Saturday’s Premier League action as a resurgent United host champions City.

The Manchester rivalry has been a bit of a mismatch in recent years, with City enjoying a period of dominance while United embarked on multiple calamitous attempts to rebuild following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, the tide may be turning once more. United look to be regaining some of their former might under new boss Erik ten Hag. They’re much more solid at the back, they’re tough to beat, and England forward Marcus Rashford looks utterly rejuvenated.

It’s a different story at City, who look to be experiencing a rare off-year. The reigning champs are five points behind Arsenal at the top of the Premier League, while Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering team suffered a shock loss in the EFL Cup at Southampton in midweek.

It’s all set up for a really intriguing Manchester Derby at Old Trafford with United keen to gain a measure of revenge for a 6-3 humbling at the Etihad earlier in the season. United have only lost once since that game and will fancy their chances of keeping that run going.

All in all, it’s set up to be an intriguing Manchester Derby on Saturday lunchtime. Here’s how to watch Fulham vs Chelsea on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
