The Manchester Derby is on this weekend and after a few season, this will once again be the most anticipated game of the Premier League season. Both Manchester United and Manchester City are title contenders and they both have amazing managers so we are surely set for a great game.
Manchester City have a blow that Aguero is out of this game and that will really cause them problems in the goal scoring aspect of this context. Furthermore, the way that Mourinho plays these big games, it will be really tough for Manchester City to get goals here. That being said, the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Raheem Sterling all know how to finish so it is not all bad for Manchester City.
Manchester United will feel as if they are the better team here and the likes of Pogba and Ibrahamovic are really starting to fit into this team. This side is well balanced and at home this is a game that I feel that that they should win. With that in mind, this is a big game and Manchester City are a good side managed by Pep so it might not be an easy task to accomplish.
As far as betting is concerned, there are quite a few bets that are worth it in this game. We are getting a much better than usual price on Manchester City to win this game and at the price we are getting I think it is a great wager. In regards to the number of goals being scored, I think this will be a low scoring game. Mourinho likes to park the bus and with no Aguero for Manchester City, a 1-0 or 1-1 result is the most likely so I am going to go for the under 2.5 goals as my bet for this games.
