In the big city derby in Premier League Manchester City host Manchester Utd.
Manchester City lost the last match against West Ham 2-1, while Chelsea took all three points this week against QPR 2-1 and now the difference between two main candidates for the title is 9 points, but City have one match less and if they managed to win this match the difference will be 6 points.
Man City is without win in their last three matches in all competitions. In the UEFA Champions League they failed to win CSKA in Moscow (2-2), than the last week they lost against West Ham (2-1) and finally Newcastle beat them in Capital One Cup few days ago (0-2).
This is very important match for home side and they have to win this one in order to stay in a race for the title. On Wednesday they will host CSKA Moscow in another very important match for them.
Touré (8/1 m) picked up the injury in the last match against Newcastle, but he will probably be in the first eleven, while two very important players Lampard (5/2 m) and Silva (9/2 m) are both out.
Manchester United didn’t make the good start of the season. In 9 matches this season in Premier League they have managed to win only three times (3-4-2). Last week in the derby match against Chelsea they took very important point (1-1) after Van Persie scored in the injury time.
Man United is playing very solid at home, but they are still without win away from home (0-3-1).
Jones (4/0 d), Evans (3/0 d), McNair (2/0 d), Young (4/0 m), Lingard (1/0 m) and Falcao (5/1 f) are all out.
Manchester City is a favorite to win this match, but it’s a derby match and everything is possible, so I will avoid to predict the final score. The better betting option could be to bet on more goals.
Both teams have great attackers, while on the other side their defences is pretty shaky.
Manchester City vs Manchester Utd Betting Tip: over 2.5 goals @ 1.60 (Bet365)
