Team Overview

Manchester City Looking to Keep At the Heels of Liverpool in the Fight for the Premier League Title

Pep Guardiola’s charges, on a run of four wins and a draw in their last five rounds of fixtures in the Premier League, will look to complete the double over their neighbors when they clash on Sunday lunchtime.

After a run of three lean 1-0 wins in the Premier League, lean by their loft standards, Manchester City roared back to 2-6 win at Kenilworth Road against Luton Town. 

The free-scoring ease with which they dispatched the relegation-threatened minnows shows that Guardiola’s men are recapturing their goalscoring mojo at the right time ahead of the derby, adding to their dominance of football predictions.

A point behind Liverpool on the Premier League table and a point ahead of the pursuing Arsenal, Manchester City will look for the win they need to keep within striking distance of the Reds and keep the Gunners at bay.

Manchester United Looking to Return to Winning Ways in the Premier League in the Derby

After a run of four consecutive wins in the Premier League and five matches unbeaten, Manchester United were brought back to earth when they lost 1-2 at home to Fulham last Saturday.

Erik Ten Hag’s side missed the composure, runs, and line-leading of Rasmus Hojlund when they faced Fulham. His replacement, Marcus Rashford, failed to provide the presence and intelligence the summer signing provides, leading Manchester United to drop three precious points. 

Football bet predictions show Manchester United as the overwhelming underdogs as they visit their neighbors on Sunday. Erik Ten Hag will hope that his charges can step up their match and motivation for the derby and pull off something spectacular.

Player Focus

Expert soccer predictions show that this is likely to be attack versus defense, with Manchester City dominating possession and Manchester United adopting a pragmatic approach.

Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland

The devastating double-act were at their best in the 2-6 deconstruction of Luton Town at Kenilworth Road. Haaland’s clever runs, speed, power, movement, and position, coupled with De Bruyne’s playmaking abilities and goal threat, make them the football pick to impact this match.

Casemiro and Mainoo

Manchester United’s midfield will be pivotal to containing Manchester City’s play. Disrupting the passes and the rhythm will allow Manchester United the reprieve they need to get into the match and pose an attacking threat.

Football prediction analysis shows that Mainoo and Casemiro, at the base of the Manchester United midfield, will be pivotal for the Reds.

Tactical Analysis

Manchester City will line up in their typical 4-3-3 designed to dominate the middle of the pack and suffocate the opposition. 

Manchester United will adopt a 4-2-3-1 formation geared toward compactness and pace in transition attacks.

Manchester City vs. Manchester United Expert Analysis

Manchester City have shown significant dominance in this fixture. Their ball-keeping abilities, positional and tactical superiority, and the individual qualities of the manager and the players make them odds-on favorites.

Although Manchester United have shown signs of a revival, the players have not shown tactical maturity in big matches. This being the hardest fixture on the calendar, most football predictions are not backing the Red Devils.

22bet’s pre-match predictions shows Manchester City as healthy favorites (1.25) to Manchester United’s long odds (10). A draw is available at sizable odds of 6.4. 22bet will also offer live prediction football on the site after kickoff on Sunday.
