THIS Sunday sees arguably English football’s two biggest local rivalries… as Manchester United play Manchester City and Liverpool host Everton.
Ahead of the two massive derbies games in a truly “Super Sunday”, check out all of the vital statistics, thanks to research from Bookmakers.co.uk.
The main event of Sunday’s football feast will see the Premier League’s top two side go head-to-head in the Manchester Derby.
Either way, it’s guaranteed to be a cracker of a contest, with the two sides combining to score 76 league goals in just 14 games this season.
City will fancy their chances going into Sunday evening’s game as they have the better record in recent derby games.
They’ve in fact won five of the ten previous Manchester derbies in all competitions, with their last victory coming in the early stages of last season.
Goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho sealed a 2-1 win for City at Old Trafford.
Despite being favourites for Sunday’s contest, City are still a fair distance off United’s record for victories in the Manchester Derby.
City have 50 wins to their name in the 174 previous meetings, compared to United’s 72.
Sergio Aguero will be hoping to start ahead of Gabriel Jesus this weekend, as he looks to close in on
Wayne Rooney’s record as the top goal scorer in derby history.
The Argentinian has eight goals to Roo’s 11, and sits behind former City players Joe Hayes and Francis Lee, as well as United great, Sir Bobby Charlton.
Sunday’s earlier contest, the Merseyside derby, promises to be an intriguing encounter too, as rampant Liverpool aim to inflict further punishment under struggling Everton – now under new management.
Everton have recaptured a bit of form as of late under Sam Allardyce, but still face a monumental challenge to lead the Toffees to their first derby victory at Anfield in 18 years.
You have to go back seven years to Everton’s last derby win, where goals from Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta left their rivals with just six points from their first eight games.
Since then, there have been fourteen derbies, with Liverpool winning half of them.
Not only is there a big gulf in form, but there’s also a big difference in squad value – with Liverpool totalling £463million compared to Everton’s £302m.
Despite not being the highest valued player at Anfield, Liverpool will be looking to the in-form Mohamed Salah to spearhead them to victory Sunday.
His impressive tally of 17 goals in all competitions is over half of Everton’s total after 24 competitive matches.
In fact, Liverpool have scored almost double Everton’s tally in just 24 matches this season, and will be expected to win on Sunday.
