Julien Laurens and Ian Darke question if Manchester United can pull off an upset at the Etihad. (1:35)

EPL Round 16 - Manchester City v Manchester United (Sunday 4:30am AEDT)

It's another edition of the Manchester Derby and this one is set to throw up a bit of value.

Although there are 11 points separating the sides, the gulf between the sides has been much bigger than that over the past few seasons.

City, the two-time defending champions, haven't had the best of starts to their campaign and surprisingly have dropped points at home on two occasions from seven outings so far.

They were held to a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United last Saturday, but Pep Guardiola's side got back on track with a comfortable win at Burnley midweek.

United, for the most part, have been shocking. But they struck back in a big way with a 2-1 win over former manager Jose Mourinho and Tottenham midweek.

City have won three of the past four clashes between the sides. However, their defence is a concern and with some bright young attackers led by Marcus Rashford, I can honestly see the Red Devils giving City a real test.

There won't be much between them at the finish and I can see there being a stalemate at the end of 90 minutes simply because City are not the side they were last season and United's recent win over Spurs will have given them a genuine boost.
