With 14 goals to his name already, Erling Haaland is the man that keeps Premier League defenders up at night. However, the prospect of being overshadowed by a 22-year-old may just bring out the best of United's own goal machine, Cristiano Ronaldo, who now has 699 career club goals to his name. Will he reach the 700 mark against United's noisy neighbors today? Read on to find out how to watch a Man City vs Man Utd live stream and catch the Premier League online, no matter where you are.

With John Stones injured, and Rúben Dias and Aymeric Laporte only fit enough for the bench, the City backline has a slightly makeshift look to it. New signing Manuel Akanji partners Nathan Aké in central defense, which means Kyle Walker and João Cancelo may need to play more conservatively than usual. Jack Grealish and Phil Foden flank Haaland up top.

Premier League player of the month Marcus Rashford starts as Man United's lone striker, which means Ronaldo is once again on the bench. Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho are in the playmaking roles, with Christian Eriksen pulling the strings behind them. Despite impressing during the international break, Luke Shaw is still behind Tyrell Malacia in the pecking order.

Having recorded wins over Liverpool and Arsenal, Erik ten Hag has already got the better of two of Man Utd's fiercest rivals. Make it three from three and fans might just start to dream again.

Ronaldo is back in the goals, Antony is getting fans on their feet, and Rashford and Sancho have finally rediscovered their form. Meanwhile, Shaw and Diogo Dalot both excelled during on international duty, which should further boost a backline that has been brilliant with Raphaël Varane and Lisandro Martínez at its heart.

But even if they manage to shackle Haaland, Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Foden will be among those ready to pounce. Since being held by Aston Villa at the start of last month, City have scored nine and conceded just one across three victories. Not bad for a side that's probably yet to reach its full potential.
