Manchester City – Manchester United (Premier League)

The so awaited Manchester derby will take place this Saturday afternoon at the Eithad Stadium, with Manchester City and Manchester United going up against each other for the 33rd round of the Premier League. After being defeated against Liverpool in midweek for the Champions League, Manchester City will try to secure the Premier League title here. Manchester United, on their turn, will take this opportunity to spoil their biggest rival’s plans and, at least, delay their title celebrations.

Manchester City are in 1st place in the Premier League with 84 points, from 27 victories, 3 draws and 1 defeat, with 88 goals scored and 21 goals conceded. The Citizens lost 3-0 against Liverpool on Wednesday night, for the 1st leg of the Champions League quarter-finals, the second time they lost against the Reds this season, and need to get their confidence back as fast as possible for the return leg. However, it was the first time that City failed to hit a single shot on the opponent’s goal this season.

Still, this is a game where City can count with the support of their fans, and at home the team have won their last 14 Premier League consecutive matches, scoring 50 goals and conceding only 9 in the process. In the last three league games held here, Pep Guardiola’s men scored 9 goals, conceding only 1. This would be the ideal way to put Wednesday’s staggering defeat to Liverpool behind them and give them some added confidence ahead of next week’s return leg.

Probable Lineup: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Otamendi and Delph – Fernandinho, Gundogan and Bruyne – Sterling, Aguero and Sané.

premier-leagueManchester United, on their turn, are in 2nd place with 68 points, from 21 victories, 5 draws and 5 defeats, with 60 goals scored and 23 goals conceded. Manchester United come here at the back of two victories, against Brighton and Swansea City, but the fact that they were eliminated from the Champions League at Old Trafford against Sevilla is something still present in the heart of their supporters, and a victory in this derby would soften things up.

Away from home is how the Red Devils have lost more points this season, they have won 8 of their 15 away matches, losing 4 in the process. In their last 5 away league matches, Mourinho’s men were defeated twice, winning the remaining 3, with 6 goals scored and 5 goals conceded. Jose Mourinho loves to spoil a party and will be determined to at least delay City’s title celebrations here. However, United have failed to score in three of their four away league matches against their top-six rivals this season.

Probable Lineup: Gea – Valencia, Bailly, Smalling and Young – Matic – Pogba, Lingard, Mata and Sánchez – Lukaku.

Each team has won 3 of their previous 8 direct confrontations, with the remaining 2 ending in a tie.

City have surprisingly failed to score in their last two home matches against United but that isn’t expected to continue here. Pep Guardiola’s side haven’t failed to score in successive matches in all competitions this season, and a victory here, that would make them Premier League champions, is of the utmost importance for the team to regain confidence ahead of the next week’s return leg against Liverpool.
