The Manchester derby, Jose Mourinho vs. Pep Guardiola, arrives on Thursday afternoon. Manchester United visits city rival Manchester City in a big-time Premier League clash, with both eyeing a top-four spot.
Here’s everything to know and how to watch:
Player to watch: Marcus Rashford for United. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic done for the season with a knee injury, the young Englishman is going to be counted on heavily to help lead the Red Devils’ attack for the rest of the campaign. He should have his chances against an inconsistent City defense.
What’s on the line: Plenty. Three massive points in the league race as both battle for a top-four spot. City is fourth with 64 points, while United is one spot and one point behind. A United win will greatly boost its chances of a top-four finish, while a win for City will give it a little breathing room.
City to win – 17/20
Draw – 11/4
Man. United – 16/5
When: Thursday at 3 p.m. ET
Where: Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England

Prediction: United without Zlatan isn’t the same. City gets all three points with a fantastic showing from Kevin de Bruyne. City 2, United 0.
