The Manchester derby is set to take place this weekend with Manchester City hosting Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester United produced a big win midweek as they defeated Tottenham 2-1 at home. It was a determined performance by Manchester United as the team defended well and capitalized on their chances. Marcus Rashford was the star performer for Manchester United as the English striker scored both goals for the club. Despite that result, Manchester United are still in a very tough position and a big result will be required from this match. That being said, this is expected to be a very tough fixture for Manchester United since they are playing away from home against an elite team.
Looking at Manchester City, the Sky Blues have fallen behind in the Premier League title race and it is going to be tough for them to catch Liverpool. That being said, Manchester City have been playing well and the team will enter this match with some confidence. In their previous outing, Manchester City defeated Burnley 4-1 away from home. It was a dominant performance by Manchester City as they controlled 76% of the possession and had 17 shots. Gabriel Jesus looked in good touch as the Brazilian striker scored twice for Manchester City. Rodri and Riyad Mahrez also contributed with goals. Manchester City are looking confident and they will be very tough to beat.
Manchester United and Manchester City last played each other in April. The match was played at Old Trafford with Manchester City winning 2-0 away from home. Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane scored goals for Manchester City.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Manchester City to win this match. Manchester City are the stronger side and they have the advantage of playing at home. I am expecting Manchester United to fight hard but I don’t see the Red Devils having enough to compete with the Sky Blues.
