Man United vs Man City match preview

It’s time for one of the highlights of the Premier League calendar, as Manchester City make the short trip to Old Trafford to take on local rivals Manchester United. It’s a critical game for both teams, who’re a little off the pace in the race for the Premier League title. A win gets one team right back into the mix among early pace-setters Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea.

With one of these teams seemingly winning or fighting for the title every year for the last three decades, United and City enter the Manchester Derby outside of the Champions League places, albeit having played one game fewer than the other top sides.

United perhaps have the greater need following their Champions League exit in midweek, while City have marched on to the knockout stages as group winners. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to fend off criticism, while doing just about enough to remain in the job. However, a heavy defeat to bitter rivals City might be the end of the road for the former United striker. City have Sergio Aguero back in attack, having been uncharacteristically goal-shy during this campaign.

We’re going out on a limb and predicting a United win, with the likes of Greenwood, Rashford and Martial putting on a counter-attacking clinic against a fragile City back line.
