Man City Vs Man United: Premier League Betting Prediction

On Saturday, the two great rivals meet again but by now, the script has completely flipped.

No longer are Manchester United the proud favorites turning their noses up at the lowly “noisy neighbors”, no longer do they have the legendary coach who gives them an edge against all opposition.

Now, Manchester City are the dominant force in England and Manchester while the former lords of the manor have to scrap for a place in the top four.

The road to this point has been a long and painful one to fans of the Red Devils and after the embarrassment at Old Trafford, will be hoping to restore some pride with a win in this game.

Manchester City Vs Manchester United Team News
The Manchester City squad is mostly fit, with the lone exception the disgraced Benjamin Mendy who was arrested last year. Pep Guardiola has a rare opportunity to choose from a fully healthy squad, expect him to make the most of it.

Over on the red side of Manchester, Edison Cavani is still out injured while Mason Greenwood has not been allowed to rejoin the squad yet. Scott McTominay was out injured in their last match and is likely to miss the Manchester Derby as well.

Expect Cristiano Ronaldo to make the Manchester United line up, supported by Sancho, Elanga, Pogba, Fred and Bruno Fernandes. Further back, Dalot, Varane, McGuire and Shaw will protect David de Gea in goal.

Manchester City Vs Manchester United Prediction
Before the season started, Cristiano Ronaldo looked certain to join City until the Red Devils stepped in and stole a march on their rivals. Given their current standing in the table, it’s safe to say the Portuguese superstar must wish he’d chosen Pep’s side.

City’s squad is only rivaled by Liverpool’s and boasts quality players in every position. De Bruyne, Laporte, Foden and Cancelo have been outstanding as usual this season and we can expect the match to turn on the exploits of these players. Expect them all to make the Manchester City lineup.

Our pick: Manchester City to win!
