Man City v Man Utd: Preview

The first Manchester Derby of the 2018/19 Premier League season takes place this Sunday, when Man City welcome local rivals Man Utd to The Etihad Stadium.

Our Man City v Man Utd betting preview checks out which bookmakers offer the best odds, how each team is performing, and the player injuries that could cause concern for both managers.

Man City have had a fantastic start to their campaign, and it’s no surprise that bookmakers offer the hosts as the favourites to win one of the most anticipated matches of the season so far!

If you’re planning on having a punt on the Manchester Derby, make sure that you take advantage of some of the brilliant betting offers that are up for grabs on this epic clash!

These 2 teams have played each other a total of 42 times in the Premier League, with Man Utd wining 21 of these clashes while City secured 13 victories, and the other 8 ended in draws.

Although Man Utd have won more fixtures historically, it’s been more of a mixed bag in recent times, with 2 wins for each side and 2 draws coming out of the last 6 Premier League fixtures.

Without a doubt Man City look much stronger this season, and given they haven’t lost a match so far, Pep Guardiola will be determined not to lose to their Manchester adversaries.

The current Premier League champions are having an absolute stellar season, winning 9 of their 11 matches and keeping 7 clean sheets so far.

Pep Guardiola’s side come into the Manchester Derby sitting in the top spot on 29 points after a spectacular 6-1 victory against Bournemouth in their last outing, and a win against Man Utd would be the icing on the cake.

Not only would it be great for to beat their Manchester rivals, but a win could also extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table even further.

It would also open the gap between Chelsea and Liverpool, who only trail them by 2 points.

Man City have scored on average 3 goals per match this season, with Sergio Aguero scoring 7, while Raheem Sterling has also added 6 to their total of 33 so far.

If they can keep up this performance they could easily break their scoring record!

Given that Man City face West Ham, Bournemouth and Watford after the Man Utd match, there are plenty of opportunities to add to their points and goal tally.

Unfortunately Man City will be missing Kevin De Bruyne for the Derby after he suffered a second knee-ligament injury against Fulham. Bravo and Mangala are also set to miss this clash, while Gundogan and Otamendi are also a doubt.

Man Utd head to the Etihad stadium sitting in 7th place on the league table, and 9 points behind Man City, after taking 6 points from a possible 6 from their last 2 matches.

A 2-1 victory against Everton was followed up by another 2-1 win against Bournemouth last weekend, and it looks as if Man Utd are starting to regain their form.

It hasn’t been a great campaign so far for José Mourinho’s men, and Saturday’s clash against Man City is pretty much their most important match of the season to date.

Although Man Utd won the last Premier League match against City at The Etihad Stadium, it will be a very big ask for Utd to come away with all 3 points on this occasion.

Mourinho could be without Lukaku who is still in doubt, while Fellaini will miss the Manchester Derby due to a groin injury, and Dalot and Valencia have also been ruled out.

Man Utd came 2nd to Man City last season in the race for the Premier League title, and really don’t look as if they have the confidence to beat them away from home on Sunday.

In saying that, there is a lot to play for and with such intense rivalry between these sides, Man Utd won’t go down without a fight - especially with Mourinho in the dug out.
