Manchester City vs Manchester United Preview

Manchester City vs Manchester United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Etihad Stadium

Date: 11th November 2018

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

The City of Manchester as a whole has so much to be happy about after the midweek Champions League results.

Manchester City enjoyed a dominant 6-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk at home, while Manchester United left it late but still came from behind to record a stunning 2-1 win away at Juventus.

However, domestically, these two teams are far apart and this may be the game that changes everything for them.

Defending champions Manchester City are unbeaten in the league this season and they are 2 points clear at the top, while Manchester United 7th in the league table after a poor spell of form early on.

The Cityzens entertain their neighbors off the back of an 11 games unbeaten run, with ten wins and 1 draw since losing to Olympique Lyon in the Champions League earlier in the season.

The leaders last home defeat in the league was their 3-2 comeback loss to Manchester United, so even though they have won their 6 league games at home this season, they should be careful not to underrate Manchester United.

Manchester United are enjoying some form of resurgence at the moment after a poor start to the season.

They have won 3 and drawn 1 of their last 4 league games, scoring 9 goals in the process.

The Red Devils have an all-too-familiar defencive problem that has seen them keep just 1 clean sheet in the league all season.

United have already conceded 18 goals so far, and they will be facing a Manchester City attack that has already scored 33 goals in just 11 league games.

Bookmakers have made Man City extremely strong favourites to come out on top (1.40) while Manchester United have been priced up as if they have very little chance (8.5).

Goal markets point to an extremely open game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading at (1.44).
