Manchester City vs Manchester United: Prediction and Betting Tips
Manchester City on their way to claim the title
It can’t get any better for Pep Guardiola and The Citizens. While all other Premier League teams faltered and couldn’t hold on to the top spot, Manchester City not only rallied to the top spot after a relatively slow start to the season but they now have built a commanding 14 point lead.
Guardiola’s team appear to not put a foot wrong when they take the football pitch against any opponent. An incredible 21 matches winning streak in all competitions since mid-December, saw The Citizens fighting on four fronts, the Premier League, EFL Cup, FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League.
Stability in form, the best defense, the best attack, Guardiola has found chemistry in his team that is invincible so far. The Spaniard doesn’t rely on a certain goalscorer for the team’s goals, on the contrary, their top goalscorer is Gundogan a midfielder and five players have scored six goals or more.
Manchester United to fight the last battle
The Red Devils have lost their chance when they were at the top of the Premier League table and couldn’t cling on. Now they are 14 points behind their arch-rivals and go to the Etihad on Sunday with injuries to key players which will minimize their chances to get a result.
After two games with seven goals against Real Sociedad in the UCL and Newcastle in the Premier League, Ole Gunnar Soslkjaer’s team had three 0-0 draws in a row. Although it is a great record having three clean sheets in a row, Solskjaer needs to find a solution for his team’s lack of scoring efficiency.
In their last match against Crystal Palace, The Red Devils completely dominated the game with 63% of Possession and 600 completed passes but they couldn’t convert any of their 11 goal attempts to happy endings and claim three points.
- Man City have won their last eight home games
- Man City have scored in every home match this season
- Man City have scored in their last 16 matches
- Man United are unbeaten in the last 13 away matches
- Man United are unbeaten in the last five matches

Manchester City vs Manchester United Predcition
Guardiola’s team have proved to be unbeatable in 20 matches. Manchester United are in a position where they have a last chance to catch The Citizens and that is by beating them at the Etihad Stadium, something that only Leicester were capable of achieving back in September.
Three of the last five matches of Manchester City and Manchester United saw Both teams scoring. 43% of Manchester City matches saw over 2.5 goals and 57% of Manchester United matches saw over 2.5 goals.
Manchester City are on ire to say the least and it is hard to stop them especially by Manchester United with their recent form after drawing their last two games. We think Manchester City are capable of continuing their run, thus we predict a win for Manchester City.
