Manchester United vs. Manchester City Preview

Manchester United

The Red Devils won the past four EPL games, which brought them to the UEFA Champions League zone. Erik Ten Hag’s unit looks stable right now, but there are some glitches in their performances, particularly in the back like, where they often make some pretty unexpected mistakes.

When looking at all the competitions, United is on fire at home, with eight consecutive victories and ten matches without a defeat. All the lines in the team are very good, with the defense posting eight clean sheets, and the offense scoring two or more goals in seven of those events. 

We have to say that in certain situations, Ten Hag’s crew had lots of luck, but that can’t and won’t diminish an excellent stretch of performances at Old Trafford.

Manchester City

The Citizens blew away Chelsea in the FA Cup. The final result of this event was 4-0, but it could have ended much more tragically for the Blues, who weren’t in such an inferior situation for a long time. City was all over the place, looking routine and incredibly tough.

Just three days earlier, Haaland and the boys beat the same rivals, only it happened at Stamford Bridge, with a minimal result, 0-1. The most recent defeat Citizens suffered was before the World cup, losing to Brentford at home, 1-2. 

Yet after that, Guardiola’s crew has risen, winning five games and posting one draw, which was at home to Everton, 1-1. City won three straight EPL games on the road, allowing just one goal during that span.
