Manchester United Prediction

Are Manchester United a team in crisis now? United have slumped to six defeats from their last eight matches in all competitions and perhaps are showing signs of a long, tough season as they’ve recently bowed out of the Champions League, losing 4-0 on aggregate to Barcelona.

In addition, United have suffered three defeats in the Premier League to the likes of Arsenal, Wolves and a crushing and humiliating 4-0 loss away at Everton on the weekend. Wolves also bundled them out of the FA Cup too, so all is not well in the Old Trafford camp ahead of this crucial clash with their fierce rivals, Manchester City.

However, that’s only part of the story; at home, Manchester United have lost just once in their last five matches in all competitions which was the 1-0 loss to Barcelona, but wins against Southampton, Watford and West Ham have kept the hosts in the hunt for a top four finish under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The last four meetings at Old Trafford have resulted in two wins (2-0 and 1-0) and two losses (1-2 and 1-2) for United, but the losses have been by a single goal margin.


Key-Facts – Manchester United v Manchester City

  • Manchester United have lost just 1 of their last 5 home matches in all competitions
  • Manchester City have won their last 10 matches on the trot in the EPL
  • United have not been beaten by more than 1 goal in their last 6 at Old Trafford


Manchester City Prediction

Manchester City were also bundled out of the Champions League recently by Tottenham recently but the visitors did exact a measure of revenge by returning the favour with a 1-0 home win at Etihad Stadium to maintain their challenge for domestic honours in their title race with Liverpool.

City once again find themselves two points behind Premier League leaders, Liverpool but they have a game in hand over The Reds, so Pep Guardiola’s side will go all out for the points here as they look to reclaim top spot.

Although it’s a local derby, City will be keen to exploit any weaknesses that their hosts may have developed in recent weeks as their recent poor results have been well publicised.

City bring a dominant 10-match winning streak in the Premier League into this encounter, while they also possess an excellent away record which stands at 11-2-3 31/10 which includes winning their last four on the trot with wins at Everton, Bournemouth, Fulham and Crystal Palace.

Betting Tips Verdict

Despite their problems, United can bounce back here and will be well motivated to do so – City should win but the margin of victory may be tighter than most imagine.
