Manchester City vs Manchester United Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City has a golden chance to cement their title race for the Premier League this weekend in the highly entertaining Manchester Derby as they welcome Manchester United. The match schedules for Sunday at Etihad Stadium with a kickoff at 7:30 pm.

Pep Guardiola’s men are currently on a 21 winning streak across all competitions and on top of the table. On the other hand, Ole Gunnar’s men are second on the table with 14 points adrift of leaders.

The Citizens continued their impressive run of form with a 4-1 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday night. Gabriel Jesus scored a brace, and Riyadh Mahrez equalized a late strike to continue their winning streak.

It is an impressive display from Guardiola with 15 wins in the Premier League, which leaves them in a comfortable position at the top of the division. A win this weekend in the Manchester Derby will prove game over for the title race, mathematically speaking.

Manchester United was once seen as favourites to lift the Premier League trophy. However, a poor run of form and a series of draws leaves the Red Devils second best. Their 0-0 draw to Crystal Palace was the last nail on the coffin for them in their title race bid. The last three matches for Ole Gunnar ended with a 0-0 goal line.
