The Red Devils haven't managed a derby double over their noisy neighbours since the 2009/10 season - but can they do it today? We'll help you discover where to watch a Man United vs Man City live stream from all over the world.

Man United ran out as 2-1 winners at the Etihad in December the last time these two teams met in the Premier League, with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial getting the goals for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side and Nicolas Otamendi on target for City.

That result dealt a significant blow to Pep Guardiola's side's hopes of retaining the title this season and will no doubt be keen to avenge that damaging defeat.

Man United vs Man City live stream - where and when

Today's game takes place at Old Trafford, with kick-off scheduled for 4.30pm GMT in the UK. After the clocks change in the US, that means a 12.30pm ET / 9.30am PT start this Sunday for soccer fans in America. Premier League followers in Australia will have to stay up to 3.30am AEDT on Monday morning to watch United vs City live.

Both teams come into today's match in arguably their best form of the season. 

Manchester United extended their recent good run of form with a professional job in the FA Cup, comfortably beating Derby 3-0 on Thursday. Before that, the Red Devils drew at Everton in the league to pile the pressure on Chelsea in the battle for fourth place.

City have fared even better of late, grabbing their first piece of domestic silverware of the season with a hard-fought win over Aston Villa in the League Cup Final on Sunday. They followed that up with a 1-0 win over a stubborn Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup on Wednesday.

And don't forget that a VPN isn't just for football. There's loads you can do with these clever bits of software.

Man United vs Man City: latest news and predictions

City have been historically excellent in March under Guardiola - they're unbeaten in all 10 of their Premier League fixtures in the month since the Spaniard took charge at the Etihad and have won each of the last seven in a row.

Guardiola has also won all three of his Premier League trips to Man United (no away manager has won more at Old Trafford), and there's further incentive for the Sky Blues if the win on Sunday. City can become the first top-flight side to win four fixtures in a row at Old Trafford since the Citizens themselves managed a run of five successive victories between 1968 and 1972.

Phil Foden is being tipped to earn a start for City following  his impressive Carabao Cup final performance amid doubts over Kevin De Bruyne's fitness, while Daniel James and Aaaron Wan-Bissaka could both be in contention for the home side.
