The champions get their Premier League campaign back underway with a trip to the London Stadium on Saturday, though they are managing a number of injury problems going into the busy festive period.
City remain undefeated in the league this season, having only dropped four points from 12 matches, two points ahead of Liverpool, while United trail in 8th, with four losses to their name already.
The reigning champions are now on a seven-match winning streak in all competitions that would be 12 save for a goalless draw at Anfield during October.
City are two points clear at the top of the table and aiming to win back-to-back league crowns for the first time in their history.

Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has admitted that he has little interest in reading about his managerial rivals, joking that he "can't be f*****" with seeing Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp in the papers.
'Next season we will see how it changes and in two and three years.' Fellaini will return to United duty this weekend when Jose Mourinho's side welcome Crystal Palace to Manchester. Okay, they are very good, and they have good players but it's possible to beat them.
To no surprise, the blue half of Manchester hasn't let Fellaini off lightly for trying to undermine their formidable start to the 2018-19 season... "The way they play and created their own style is impressive", added Guardiola.
