EFL Cup: Manchester United vs Manchester City

Manchester United vs Manchester City Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 1/8 finals of the EFL Cup, Manchester United host city rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester United vs Manchester City.

Manchester United v Manchester City - Premier League, Jose Mourinho vs Josep Guardiola

Manchester United eliminated Northampton in the 1/16 finals of EFL Cup and they host big city rivals Manchester City in the 1/8 final of this competition. Home side is in a very poor form and we all expected better performance from this club. Manchester United was humiliated against Chelsea on Sunday in the Premier League match, so their manager Jose Mourinho was really upset and he said to Antonio Conte not to ‘humiliate’ him. The match against Manchester City is very important for home side and they have to win this game upfront their supporters. They have already played against City in Premier League this season and Manchester City took all three points, beating them 1-2 at Old Trafford. Home team will have a chance to revenge them but it’s questionable are they capable to beat them. They have managed to win only one of their last six Premier League matches and it’s obvious that they are in crises.

Manchester City eliminated Swansea in the 1/16 finals of EFL Cup and they want to make another step forward and reach the 1/4 finals. It won’t be an easy job for them, because their opponent want the same. Visitors started this season amazing, but their recent performance is very poor. Manchester City failed to win in their last five matches in all competitions. For them, Premier League is priority, but every match against Manchester United is very important and they will be fully motivate to repeat their success and beat home side again. Their top scorer Sergio Aguero is in a very bad form and everyone in club expect that he could get in the good form and start hitting the net on this game. Visitors have many problems in the defence. In the last 7 matches in all competitions, Man City conceded on each game at least one goal.

Team News

Home side miss Bailly, Jones, Fellaini, Schneiderlin and Rooney. On the other side, visitors will be without de Bruyne, Sagna, Zabaleta and Delph.

Manchester United vs Manchester City Prediction

Both sides want to start playing better and win this game which can give them self confidence. In the matches like these it’s hard to predict the final score, but I expect open and attacking match between Manchester United vs Manchester City and goals in both nets.
