Premier League: Manchester United vs Manchester City live
The Manchester derby will begin at 14:30 (SAST) with two of the six big Premier League clubs facing off. After a good victory against Tottenham last weekend, Manchester United will welcome Manchester City at Old Trafford today. Manchester United have won two of their past four derbies, and the game today will be tough for both clubs. Though United have had a difficult season, losing at home to Liverpool, the Red Devils have won most of their derbies against the Citizens. Michael Oliver has been named as the official referee for today’s 185th Manchester derby.
Manchester United bounced back from a devastating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool with a 3-0 win over Tottenham last weekend. They will play Manchester City in a Premier League derby today, and Ole and his team are expected to win, as a victory today would put them in the top four of the league table. Cavani and Varane have been left out of the team for today’s match against Manchester City.
Manchester City will need to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Palace at the Etihad last weekend in the Premier League, as dropping points today could put them in danger of sliding to sixth place in the table. The visitors are anticipated to win today because they have lost two of their last four derbies against the host team and need to make amends. City are presently five points behind league leaders, Chelsea, and a loss today will put them in a difficult position if they want to win the league this season.
The 185th Manchester Derby between the two Premier League teams will take place today. In their last five meetings across all competitions, Manchester United have won three, while Manchester City have only won one, with one tie for both teams. Their last encounter ended in a 2-0 win for Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester United have dominated their rivals in the last five derbies, but both teams have faced setbacks in their performances this season. Both teams are capable of winning all three points, and so expect a tough game today which is likely to end in a tie.
