Unfortunately, soccer fans are yet to see these two truly battle it out for a Premier League title. United had a run of dominance in the first two decades of the Premier League. This past decade is all about Manchester City. Yet, with both sides looking strong after six or seven games this season, this Manchester Derby comes at the right time.
Now, you can watch Manchester City and Manchester United in the United States in an early season battle with the following coverage details.

You can watch coverage of the Manchester Derby before and after the game. Peacock is the home of this game, so tune in there for Premier League Mornings with Rebecca Lowe, Robbie Mustoe and Robbie Earle. The trio will break down what to expect from the Etihad, while also touching on the results from Saturday. Also, there is one more game on Sunday, Leeds vs Aston Villa. Therefore, the crew will discuss that game as well.
After commentating the North London Derby on Saturday, NBC’s lead crew of Peter Drury and Graeme Le Saux travel north to the Etihad. For those interested in the Spanish-language broadcast, Peacock has a separate offering. Coverage of that game features the broadcast partnership of Andres Cantor and Manuel Sol. The Spanish broadcast, like that of its English counterpart, is exclusive to Peacock.
After the game, Premier League Live airs on both USA Network and Peacock. That Leeds-Aston Villa game is on USA Network about 30 minutes after the Manchester Derby ends.
As stated, Manchester United and Manchester City have individual eras of dominance in the Premier League. City’s extends into the modern era, with four EPL crowns in the last five seasons.
Manchester United, on the other hand, is trying to recapture its glory days under Sir Alex Ferguson. Erik ten Hag, manager at United, rattled off four straight wins in league play using a consistent formation. However, a trip to the Etihad is certainly his side’s toughest test of the season.
