Manchester United are set to host Manchester City for a massive match in the English Premier League.

Manchester United enter this match in terrible form after the Red Devils were beaten 4-0 away from home by Everton. It was a terrible performance by Manchester United as the team had only 1 shot on target while allowing Everton to take 8 shots on Target. Manchester United have lost 5 of their last 7 fixtures and it seems like their chances of finishing in the top 4 are slipping away. The fans are not happy with the team and it is going to be extremely tough for the Red Devils to turn things around against Manchester City.

On the other side of the coin, Manchester City have looked very strong as they beat Tottenham 1-0 at home. The Sky Blues scored early and maintained 61% of the ball to ensure an easy win. As it currently stands, Manchester City are second on the Premier League table but if the team can win this fixture, they will be top. The likes of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva have been in outstanding form over the past few weeks. The Sky Blues are playing good football and they will be confident in their ability to win away from home.

Manchester City and Manchester United played earlier in the season at the Etihad Stadium. Manchester City won 3-1 on that occasion. David Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and Sergio Aguero all scored for Manchester City during that game. Anthony Martial was Manchester United’s goal scorer.

Looking at this fixture, I see Manchester City winning. The Red Devils have looked very poor over the past month and the team seems to lack confidence and chemistry. Manchester City, on the other hand, have been the top team in England and have been winning with ease against most opposition. Manchester City are the stronger side and I see them winning and moving closer to retaining the Premier League title.

Manchester City
