Manchester United – Manchester City

Manchester United is in a record series of 40 meetings without losing the Old Trafford. The Red Devils are at 8 points from their top and rival in the Manchester derby and should aim for a victory to improve their title chances.

Manchester City soon took a comfortable position to win the league, but the shape of the team has fallen in recent times. In two of the last three rounds in England, the team lagged behind the record before earning late victories, and during the week, Guardiola’s boys received their first loss for the season by Shakhtar Donetsk.

Huge luck for the guests is the punishment of the best player in the composition of Mourinho Paul Pogba before the meeting. The Portuguese can not rely on Eric Bailey’s key defense, as well as veteran Michael Carrick. According to information from the press conference of United manager Nemanja Matic, Phil Jones and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are in line for the meeting.

At the same time, Pep Guardiola announced his most creative player for the healthy season – David Silva. Benjamin Mendi and John Stones are injured for the “Citizens” team, while Company and Delf are in question.

Manchester City is in an atypical position to enter the game after a loss. We are going to see what effect this will have on the players of the team. Meanwhile, the lack of the main driving force in the middle of the field for United will likely make Mourinho bet on the defensive style he is demonstrating during the long-term absence of Pogba earlier this season. At that time United did not beat his rivals and lost valuable points.
