Man Utd v Man City: kick off and how to watch first Manchester derby of 2023 live on TV

Manchester will be divided into red and blue sides on Saturday as the Manchester derby takes place

One of the biggest dates in the Manchester footballing calendar is almost here. Manchester United welcome Manchester City in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

A game which is rarely short on drama, United head into the fixture at Old Trafford in good form. Erik ten Hag’s men sealed their place in the Carabao Cup semi-final with a convincing 3-0 win in midweek.

City, on the other hand, suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Southampton in the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Wednesday. Their league form is still good of late, however, and City have won their last three Premier League away games.

The first derby of the season took place back in October, and it was a thriller. Phil Foden and Erling Haaland each scored a hat-trick as City ran out 6-3 winners. Antony netted for United, in addition to an Anthony Martial brace. The match is the 12.30pm kick-off in the Premier League on Saturday 14 January and has been picked for live broadcast on BT Sport. Here’s what you need to know about how to watch the match live.
