Manchester City vs Manchester United Betting Tips
Manchester City are losing the title race to Liverpool, although there’s still plenty of time for the Sky Blues to change that. The trouble is that this team hasn’t been playing too well lately. They’ve dropped points too many times when playing against teams much, much weaker than them. What this means is that if they wish to stay in the competition for the trophy, they need to win everything, including such tough games like the one against their city rivals.
This is a must-win game for Manchester City. Not beating Manchester Untied could mean that the Sky Blues would have to tell goodbye to the title. But, not just that, failing to beat the Red Devils could make them struggle even more to get to the second place.
And if they happen to lose to their city rivals at their own stadium, it would be a major blow for their players’ confidence. The question is how long would it take them to recover their morale. For all these reasons, Manchester City need to do all they can to win this game. What’s giving them confidence that they can do it is that have a pretty good record with Manchester United. Still, they did lose their previous two duels with the Red Devils at the Etihad Stadium.
The good news for City fans is that their biggest rivals have been pretty disappointing this year, despite the fact that they beat Mourinho-led Tottenham on Wednesday. Manchester United are struggling to find the right form and even when they win a big game, they tend to slip in the next few rounds. Another thing going in favor of Manchester City is that their arch-rivals are very poor when playing away from home.
Although they don’t have to travel much to the Emirates Stadium, this is still an away game for the Red Devils. And they’re just terrible when playing away. In fact, this season, they’ve won only one game on the road. And that victory came against the recently-promoted Norwich. They don’t seem capable of getting their second away win this weekend.

Manchester City Form and Latest News
Their form is not bad for a regular Premier League team. But, this is Man City we’re talking about, a team that wants to win as many titles as possible. And to do that, they need to make their form fantastic ASAP. And that means that they need to destroy their city rivals. It won’t be easy as they’re still without Aguero and a few other important players, but they definitely have the players to manage it.
Manchester United Form and Latest News
Now that Arsenal have sacked Unai Emeri, Manchester United’s manager Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer is one of the top candidates for losing the job (together with Everton manager Marco Silva). The win over Tottenham probably did relieve the tension, but there’s still a lot of pressure on the Norwegian manager, no matter what. And that can have an adverse effect on him and the team in general.
