Manchester City vs Manchester United Match Preview

Manchester United gained a huge fillip from their midweek win against Tottenham, but it is unlikely to save them from defeat against their big local rivals.

As we predicted, the Red Devils edged a narrow victory at home to Spurs as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed the last laugh at the expense of his predecessor as manager, Jose Mourinho.

However, United’s away record over the last nine months (see stats above) is simply too poor to think they can repeat their remarkable come-from-behind success at the Etihad in April 2018 inspired by Paul Pogba – whose return from an injury lay-off lasting more than two months was originally targeted for this match.

Whether the Frenchman will recover in time remains to be seen, but with or without him United look unlikely to stop a City side who have nevertheless suffered a recent wobble that has left them trailing 11 points behind runaway leaders Liverpool in the Premier League table.

The reigning champions are set to still be without injured Sergio Aguero here, but the striker’s deputy Gabriel Jesus is a more than capable stand-in who netted twice in Tuesday’s 4-1 victory at Burnley that got City back on track with only their second win in six games.

We expect Pep Guardiola’s side to hit top gear again soon to keep alive any lingering hope of retaining their title, so they are fancied to register another derby triumph – although their current inability to record a clean sheet means there could be something for United fans to cheer.
