United vs City Match Preview

Manchester United turned in a rare good performance in mid-week, beating Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham 2-1 at Old Trafford. United were dominant in the first half but only clinched the final result thanks to a penalty tucked away by Marcus Rashford. The young striker scored both of the Red Devils’ goals.

Meanwhile, City beat Burnley 4-1 at Turf Moor on Tuesday. However, City fans were frustrated by November draws with Newcastle United and Shakhtar Donetsk, as well as a crushing 3-1 loss to rivals Liverpool. The blues haven’t been at their most consistent but look in fine fettle compared to Ole’s United side.

There are chinks in the armour of Pep Guardiola’s team then but, other than their Wednesday night performance, United have looked incapable of exploiting them. Following Wednesday night, however, United fans will have some shreds of hope to cling to going into a competitive derby fixture.

Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford’s performances were pivotal in United’s mid-week win and they will need to perform again if United is to bag any points at the Etihad. However, the Reds’ away form remains a concern.

The Manchester derby has created plenty of historic moments over the years and even though both sides aren’t at their absolute best, Saturday’s game is bound to be a fantastic spectacle.
