Premier League


Man City v Man United Past Meetings

The corresponding fixture at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign saw the Citizens run out 2-1 victors, although United gained a degree of revenge with a 1-0 triumph in the League Cup – a trophy they went on to win.

City’s league victory in September was their only win over United in their last five attempts, but that was preceded by winning four in a row.


Man City v Man United Stats

Pep Guardiola’s men have won only one of their twelve clashes against English top seven rivals in all competitions since September’s victory over Mourinho’s team, while seven of those fixtures (Chelsea x2, Arsenal, Everton, United, Liverpool, Tottenham) have been lost.

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 23 league matches, dating back to October’s 4-0 loss at Chelsea – the longest unbeaten league streak in Europe’s major leagues and one game away from equaling their streak of 24 in the 2010/11 campaign.


Man City v Man United Team News

Man City have concerns over David Silva (hamstring), Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho, John Stones (all muscular), but Gabriel Jesus (metatarsal fracture) may be fit. Ilkay Gundogan and Bacary Sagna will both definitely miss out.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo (both knee), Juan Mata (groin), Phil Jones (toe) and Chris Smalling (knee) will all miss out for United, but Paul Pogba is expected to feature.



Reason for Man City v Man United Bets

This game is very close to call – City’s marginal one-point advantage over their city neighbours in the league shows they are generally very evenly matched.

Both have underperformed in terms of results this season, although United could yet clinch a Europa League trophy to add to their League Cup crown which would undoubtedly make Mourinho’s first season at Old Trafford a success, while Guardiola will definitely end the campaign trophyless.

The safe prediction for the encounter is a tie – the teams couldn’t be separated by more than one goal in any of their last four meetings and Thursday’s game will likely be similarly tight.

Ten of United’s last 23 league outings have ended in draws, and none in defeat but home advantage for the Light Blues means odds of 14/5 for the stalemate are tempting.

Marcus Rashford has netted in each of his last two starts for the Red Devils and settled the tie at the Etihad last campaign.

City’s defence has been notoriously flakey all season and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo may not be the man to instill confidence, with the in-form teenage striking sensation poised to lead the attack for the visitors, 27/10 odds are extremely good value.
