In what is one of the closest and most exciting battles for Champions League places in recent seasons, both Manchester clubs can still finish in a top four place. This adds extra importance to Thursday night’s rearranged fixture at the Etihad Stadium, with neither team being able to afford a defeat.

With Chelsea four points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the title, it is a clear fight between City, United, Liverpool and Arsenal to reach the continent’s elite competition for next season. Of those clubs, it is Manchester’s red club that has two chances, as they are in the last four of the Europa League and rated as favourites with Tipbet to win the trophy for the first time.

Jose Mourinho’s side also showed in their 2-0 win over Chelsea on Easter Sunday that they can compete with the league’s best; their Portuguese manager reminded everybody that he still has one of the best tactical brains in the game after deploying Marcus Rashford centrally at the expense of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede has scored 28 times this season but is unlikely to play for the club again after he and Marcos Rojo picked up major knee ligament injuries against Anderlecht – his initial one-year contract ends this summer and he has long been linked with a move to the MLS. That adds more pressure onto his 19-year-old deputy, though the English striker has shown off his clinical finishing in recent weeks.

City, meanwhile, have been in strong recent form – their 2-1 loss to Chelsea their only since January in the Premier League, while they have scored six goals in their past two games, with convincing victories over Hull City and Southampton.

As the football odds with Tipbet show, it is Manchester City’s home record that sees them as favourites. They are at 1.85 to get three points, though this would be just United’s fourth defeat of the campaign. The Reds can be backed at 4.20 to get a win, though they would likely consider a draw (3.75) a good result considering their injury problems and the fact that Liverpool lost last week.
