Manchester City 3-2 @ 22/1

Reason For Manchester City vs Manchester United Predictions

  • Both City and United come into the derby on the back off confidence building mid-week wins.
  • City’s Premier League matches have averaged 4.0 goals per 90 minutes this season.
  • Man Utd’s last six fixtures averaged 3.6 goals per game.
  • The last four Manchester Derbies averaged 3.5 goals per contest.

Derby day looms

City and United are gearing up to contest the 179th Manchester Derby at the Etihad Stadium in Saturday evening’s televised offering, and both local rivals have multiple incentives to win.

Fresh from a comfortable 4-1 win at Burnley in mid-week, the Citizens know that near perfect results will be required from here on in if they are to close the sizeable gap between them and Premier League leaders Liverpool.

After their hard-fought but ultimately deserved 2-1 win over Tottenham in mid-week, United are simply searching for momentum and consistency, as they hunt for their first back-to-back league victories since March.

Excitement guaranteed in Manchester Derbies

City had the upper hand over their neighbours and antagonists United last season, beating their Manchester counterparts home and away in the Premier League by an aggregate score of 5-1, though their latest tussle promises to be less one-sided.

The Manchester Derby rarely fails to thrill, and the last four encounters between City and United returned an average of 3.5 goals per 90 minutes. Everything points to their latest skirmish on Saturday evening hitting the same heights.

With 43 goals in 15 games so far, the Citizens are comfortably the division’s leading scorers this term, though United will find some encouragement from the fact that City conceded at least once in each of their last five Premier League outings.

In total, City’s league fixtures have averaged a whopping 4.0 goals per game since the summer, with over 2.5 goals registered and both teams scoring in nine of those contests.

United’s recent domestic endeavours have been a match for City’s in terms of excitement at least, with an average of 3.6 goals hitting the net across their last sextet of games.

More goals expected at the Etihad

Over 2.5 goals were scored and both teams hit the net in 83% (five) of those games, and it’s in that combination market that we think the best value lies for Saturday’s game.

City’s frontline continues to sparkle, though the Citizens still look far from convincing in defence. Similarly, while United and Marcus Rashford in particular have been making great strides in the final third in recent weeks, the problems at the back that saw them concede in each of their last ten games don’t look like rectifying themselves any time soon.

With that mix of factors acknowledged goals should be expected at the Etihad this week, though we’re tipping City’s superior quality to eventually tell.

City’s record from their last 26 Premier League games at the Etihad reads an imperious 24 wins, one draw and just two defeats, and despite United’s confidence building win over Spurs at Old Trafford in mid-week, the Red Devils away results still read just one win from seven this season.

Pep Guardiola’s free scoring City hit the net three or more times in 16 of those aforementioned 26 EPL home matches, and we’re backing them to notch three more in a 3-2 win on Saturday.
