It has certainly been the joy of six for Manchester City as of late, their last two outings have seen them score a half dozen goals in each game as both Southampton and Shakthar Donetsk have been put to the sword.

This Sunday Pep Guardiola’s men will be looking to continue their rampant goalscoring form as of late, although you do have to wonder if the goals will be as free flowing due to the level of opposition that they will be up against.

And it is opposition that comes in the form of Manchester United as the two giants of the English game square off in another bid to earn local supremacy and hopefully the maximum Premier League points that will come with a win.

For United they have been the kings of the late show, their past two outings have seen them snatch victory in the dying seconds of the game. Not only that, but they have had to come from behind in which to do so.

Last weekend they travelled to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth and it needed a Marcus Rashford goal to break the Cherries hearts as they returned to Old Trafford with a cruel but arguably deserved victory.

While Wednesday night saw them travel to Turin to face Juventus in the Champions League, former Red Devil Cristiano Ronaldo may well have taken all the spotlight going into the game and it looked as if he would earn it afterwards.

The reason being that he scored a sensational volley in the second half to put Juventus ahead, a goal that looked as if it would further solidify the Italian giants standing at the top of their Champions League group.

And if Juventus had then taken the chances afforded to them to kill the game off, that would have definitely been the case. However, those spurned opportunities gave United increased belief as the minutes ticked away.

First Juan Mata scored an excellent free kick with four minutes remaining to restore parity and then in the last few seconds after a number of ricochets, the ball finally found its way in the net via the chest of Juventus defender Alex Sandro.

United won’t care how they earned a win in Turin, but they will be delighted as it continues their recent run of positive results. The question now is whether they can extend the run even further come this Sunday.

Last season United ruined what was meant to be their neighbours Premier League winning party, something that shows that even If they do go into this game as relative underdogs they certainly cannot be ruled out.

At the same time though City are showing just how ruthless they can be as of late and will have no doubts that they can come out of this clash on top. It may not be another six goals that they make on Sunday, but at the same time all the signs do point to the defending champions coming out on top.
