Manchester United and Manchester City will exchange pleasantries once more this Saturday in what is by far the biggest match this weekend in the Premier League.
It is hard to think of a line like this being posted between these two just a few years ago, but the -350 price on Manchester City is likely justified based on the direction these two teams are going in.
Despite the odds, this is still a massive game between these two as Manchester City is still chasing Liverpool for the title and if United could pull out a victory over their hated rival many of this year’s poor performances will be forgiven among the fans.
Things are looking a little better in the red half of Manchester this weekend, as this team came up with a big time performance to beat The Spurs in midweek action. United now holds onto 6th place in the table and will now look to build on that momentum this weekend against The Citizens.
Marus Rashford scored a brace in that last game and he has been, without a doubt, United’s best player in the offensive third this year with 9 goals and 4 assists in 15 games. He will need to come up with another big performance in this one if United is going to have a chance to come away with a result, but he certainly has the talent to produce on the big stage.
Once again look for United to lineup with a 4-2-3-1 formation with Rashford on the wing and Lingard pulling the strings in the center of midfield.
Manchester City were utterly dominant midweek against Burnley, as they held 76% possession and ended up winning the game with a score of 4-1. Gabriel Jesus has not had a great season this year, but he did pick up a brace in that last game, and with Sergio Aguero down injured, City certainly could use Jesus back on his game.
After that win Manchester City now sits in third place 11 points adrift of Liverpool in what seems like a lost cause for the title, but we have seen crazier things happen before and this City team does have the talent to string a ton of wins together.
Manchester City has been bitten by the injury bug this year, but they do have a deep enough squad to deal with that and I expect them to be playing their A squad here as their Champions League group is all but wrapped up.
Free Manchester United vs Manchester City EPL Prediction:
If this game was at Old Trafford I would love the under, but I do not think Manchester United will last very long if they try to defend with 11 men behind the ball in this one. I expect City to open up the scoring and for that to force United into playing a more open style which leads to more chances and goals at both ends.
The over 3.5 is at +120 here which seems decent given the attacking firepower in this one, specifically on the City side.
