Jack Grealish, Erling Haaland and Phil Foden netted one goal each to help the Cityzens continue their unbeaten streak.

On the other hand, Manchester United are currently on a four-match winning run in the Premier League since suffering a 1-2 defeat to Brighton and a 0-4 loss at the hands of Brentford in their opening two fixtures this season.

Led by new manager Erik ten Hag, Manchester United are currently placed fifth in the standings with 12 points from six games. 

The Red Devils will come into the derby on the back of a 2-0 win against Sheriff in their Group E fixture in the UEFA Europa League earlier in September.
