Pundit Mark Lawrenson has backed Manchester City to beat Manchester United when we host our city rivals in the Premier League for this season’s first Manchester derby.

Despite recording three consecutive wins in all competitions, Liverpool legend Lawrenson has backed Pep Guardiola’s side to win the Manchester derby 2-0.

Lawrenson wrote: “Manchester United won just about in the week and Harry Maguire scored the goal.

“I’m glad for him because he’s not suddenly become a bad player.

“Manchester City could have been three, four or five nil in the first half but it only ended up being 2-1 against Brighton. It was a comfortable win and I think they’ll repeat that at Old Trafford.”

Mark Lawrenson’s prediction: Manchester United 0 vs 2 Manchester City
