Manchester United Preview – Can United recover from CL exit?

A midweek 3-2 defeat away from home at German Bundesliga outfit, RB Leipzig, resulted in Manchester United’s exit from the Champions League and the Red Devils will now have to make do with further participation in the Europa League instead.

A previous 3-1 loss at home to French champions PSG contributed to United’s downfall on the European front, but attentions will now turn to this upcoming local derby against their ‘noisy neighbours’, Manchester City, at Old Trafford as United look to bounce back and make it five wins on the trot in the Premier League.

Recent victories over Everton, West Brom, Southampton and West Ham – the latter two both being away from home, should still give the hosts confidence here although United have managed to pick up just one win out of their last seven matches at Old Trafford.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Manchester City Preview – Can City leapfrog hosts?

While Manchester United were being bundled out of the Champions League, their crosstown rivals, City, were enjoying a 3-0 romp at home over French side, Marseille, at the Etihad Stadium as they confirmed their place in the knockout rounds of the elite European competition.

Manchester City have also been in impressive form despite what you may hear from the media as Pep Guardiola’s side have suffered just the one defeat out of their last 15 matches in all competitions as the visitors have quietly gone about their business.

City finished top of Group C of the Champions League in a group that consisted of Porto, Olympiakos and Marseille, while on the domestic front, the visitors have won their last two matches on the trot with wins against Burnley and Fulham, winning 5-0 and 2-0 and have lost just one of their last seven on the road.
