Raheem Sterling to score first and Manchester City to beat Manchester United 5-2 at 1250/1

One punter has a fiver on!

  • There has never been a 5-2 result in a Manchester Derby. City beat United 5-1 in 1989, a result which Alex Ferguson described as the worst defensive performance of his managerial career so far.
  • The last time The Blues won 5-2 in the Premier League was in 2005, managed by Stuart Pearce. Andy Cole bagged two goals in front of a crowd of 25,289.
  • Sterling seems revitalized under Pep Guardiola, netting two goals in three appearances so far. He also scored the first goal in City’s last league match versus West Ham.

  • Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored exactly 7 goals so far this campaign, including four in their opening game against Arsenal.
  • The biggest defeat Leicester faced last season was at the hands of Arsene Wenger. They lost 2-5 on the 26th September, with a hat-trick from Alexis Sanchez.
