Manchester City will host Manchester United as the two clubs prepare for the Manchester derby. This is one of the biggest matches of the season for both teams so I am expecting a tremendous game.
Manchester United had an outstanding win in the Champions League as they defeated Juventus away from home to get their season back on track. It has been a difficult few months for the Red Devils but the team has now won its past 3 fixtures which is a very positive sign. This will be a massive test for Manchester United as their opponents are top of the table and playing tremendous football. Considering this match is being played at the Etihad Stadium, the team will need to be at its best if they wish to compete.
On the other side of the coin, Manchester City have continued their dominance over other teams as they won 6-0 in their Champions League match. It was an easy win for the Sky Blues as they controlled 62% of the possession and had 7 more shots when compared to their opponents. As it currently stands, Manchester City remains unbeaten and 2 points clear at the top of the Premier League ladder. With the likes of Gabriel Jesus, David Silva, and Sergio Aguero in exceptional form, it will be hard for any team to defeat Manchester City.
These two teams played twice last season with each side winning once. The most recent match played at the Etihad Stadium was won by Manchester United with the scoring being 3-2.
This should be a very exciting match as both teams are playing well and are filled with exceptional players. That being said, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. While Manchester United have turned their fortunes around, Manchester City seem to be playing at a different level. With this match being played at home, I see Manchester City leaving with all 3 points.
