Manchester City News and Form – Can the Citizens beat rivals United?

Last weekend Manchester City dropped a couple of points in a draw at Newcastle. But they stayed out on the road in midweek and went up a few gears to tear Burnley apart in a 4-1 success at Turf Moor. They looked more like their usual selves in that away game. It is a W5 D1 L1 record that the reigning champions have posted at home this season and they are on a three-match sequence of wins on home soil in the top flight as well. Their most recent one was a 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

Kevin de Bruyne/Man City Score/Win Double


That is an average of exactly three goals per home game that the Citizens have returned this season. They have conceded just the 6 goals in their 7 home fixtures with a clean sheet having been taken in 43% of home games. They don’t look great at the back particularly but have all that enviable scoring power. 8 of City’s 10 league wins this season have been by a margin of at least two goals. In total, Manchester City have opened the scoring in 10 of 15 league games this season and have netted at least two goals in each of their last three at the Etihad.

Key-Facts – Manchester City vs Manchester United

  • City have won their last three league home games
  • The Citizens have scored at least 2 goals in their last 4 matches against Man Utd in all competitions.
  • Man Utd have failed to win 10 of their last 11 away matches


Manchester United News and Form – Can the Red Devils raise their game at the Etihad?

After tame performance after uninspiring performance this season, Manchester United proved in midweek that they can play. They put in a great show of pace and creativity to collect three points at home over Tottenham. The win extended their undefeated streak of league form to four and it means that they have only lost one of their last seven league outings (W3 D3). They do still look a very unconvincing side across the back line and punters will wonder why they aren’t playing with the intensity that they showed against Spurs, more often.

It has been a poor W1 D3 L3 away record this season from the Red Devils and that lone away win happened at the relegation threatened Norwich. That’s their only away win in their last eleven. It’s not away form to get excited about, that’s for sure. This will be United’s first away game this season against one of the other so-called big six in the top flight. The Red Devils have produced 8 goals in their 7 road games this season, so how is that poor scoring record going to stack up against City’s threat? The Red Devils have not scored an away clean sheet in this campaign either.

Manchester City vs Manchester United Predictions

Man City to win: Manchester City haven’t hit their highest level often enough this season, but they should have enough quality on the ball to open up what is a poor Manchester United defence. On their day, City are still totally unplayable. United have very poor away form by their standards. Home win.
