Manchester City vs Manchester United Match Preview
Manchester City can win the Premier League title and break a number of records as they welcome bitter rivals Manchester United. This Manchester City vs Manchester United fixture will be played at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, April 7, so check out our Manchester City vs Manchester United prediction and betting tips.
Pep Guardiola’s side have been dominant all through the season and it is only a mere formality that they win the title. Should they win this Manchester City vs Manchester United fixture, they will win the title and make history in many aspects. This will be the earliest title win in terms of both games played and in the calendar. They are a number of records waiting in the wings for Guardiola’s side – total points, goals scored, least goals conceded etc. However, they will have one eye on the upcoming Champions League quarter-final second leg against Liverpool. After being thrashed in the first leg (3-0), City will be desperate to make the second leg count. But, considering the squad at his disposal, Pep may not be pushed for many changes. Moreover, the entire team understands the great kick they can get out of this unique opportunity of sealing the league title with a win over bitter rivals!
That should make it slightly uneasy for the visiting Jose Mourinho’s side. United are in second place behind City, but understand the problem of falling behind Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, who are breathing down their necks for quite some time now. The United fans are already bitterly disappointed with their season, which has fizzled out in all aspects and a loss in this Manchester City vs Manchester United will further rile them. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have shown the way to beat City in the midweek, but Mourinho’s park-the-bus United are too stagnant to repeat the dose. Coming against a side that is rampantly scoring goals for fun, United know that their task is cut out and beyond their capabilities.

Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction
Whatever Liverpool did to City looks the only way to get them out of their comfort zone – hustle, bustle, and press high for possession eventually getting them out of their comfort zone. However, United do not have the same capability as Liverpool to execute the blueprint and City look good to get back to their winning ways. We are backing a win for City and are also looking at Sane finding the back of the net.
