Posted on by editor

The Manchester Derby takes center stage in this weekend’s Premiership serving, with Manchester United hosting Manchester City in a battle for top spot in the Premier League.

Manchester United vs. Manchester City Trends Analysis

Manchester United has dominated Manchester City in recent seasons, winning seven of the last ten matches between these two clubs. Manchester City has achieved two wins, both at home, while one match ended in a draw.

Man City’s last visit to Old Trafford ended in a 2-1 victory for the home side.

Manchester United has lost some momentum over recent weeks, drawing three of its last five matches and winning two. The club bounced back to winning ways this week, beating Oţelul Galaţi in the Champions League.

Man United has put away 9 goals in its past five matches. This healthy scoring rate has been somewhat undermined by an unusually weak defence, that has let in 5 goals in the same period.

Manchester City, meanwhile, has found focus despite the ongoing Tevez saga, taking four wins and just one loss from its last five matches to come within 2 points of Man United on the league table.

The club’s strike force is in peak form with 12 goals scored in the last five fixtures. Defence has let in 4 goals during the same period, but has not been under much pressure with the forwards doing their job up front.

Manchester United vs. Manchester City Betting Tips

This looks like the best Manchester City has had to put a win over its local rival. Manchester United is not at its peak, and City has far more momentum coming into this fixture.
