Manchester United will face their neighbor, Manchester City, in the Week 31 Premier League match at Old Trafford on Thursday (04/25/2019) early morning hrs. Both teams both want to win in order to realize their respective targets in the rest of the season.
Manchester United need a victory to revive their hopes of finishing in the last four. Meanwhile, the victory will take Manchester City to the top of the table with a one-point lead over Liverpool with three games remaining.
The Red Devils really need extra points because they are competing with Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal for the remaining two places in the top four. It’s just that, if it is able to tackle Manchester City, that means Manchester United United will smooth Liverpool’s move towards their first Premier League title.
United are at the crossroads, will they ‘let’ city rivals to the top position or ‘help’ their eternal rivals establish their position at the top of the standings?
But, actually what to think about, can United win this derby? Although playing at home, it’s not a guarantee Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops will win three points.
Manchester United and Manchester City were both eliminated from Europe. The Red Devils were tackled by Barcelona, while foster children Josep Guardiola were defeated by Tottenham. However, they showed a different response.
United fell at home to Everton four goals without reply. Meanwhile, City won 1-0 over Tottenham, the same team that had previously ended their move in Europe.
United lost six times and only won twice in their last eight matches in all competitions. City have always won in their last 10 matches in the Premier League and have only lost once in the last 18 matches in all competitions. If you see that performance, City deserves to be a favorite in the derby later.
At the first meeting at home to Manchester City this season, Manchester United gave up 1-3. United scored one goal through Anthony Martial’s penalty, while Manchester City scored three goals through David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Ilkay Gundogan.
