Manchester City News and Form
Manchester City have won their last three Premier League games now, the most recent of which was a 6-1 home success over Southampton last weekend. They have come up with a total of twelve goals in their last three league games alone. Four times this season they have scored at least five goals in a league game. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:50 pm). There is certainly a trend there as there have been over 2.5 goals in 21 of Man City’s last 24 league games at the Etihad.
The Citizens have been winning at both half time and full time in all but one of their last seven league home games. They have come up with at least two goals in each of their last seven home games in the Premier League and that is the current winning streak (7) which they are on at the Etihad too. The Citizens have produced an average of four goals per game at home this season, while they have conceded just three. It has once again been impressive stuff from them.
Each of the three home goals they have conceded have all been in the first half of matches. In 73% of their league games home and away this season, City have been winning at half time. They have kept a clean sheet in 50% of their home fixtures this season. With that in mind Manchester City to win to nil is at 8/5 odds for the Manchester derby* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:50 pm). Kevin De Bruyne misses out through injury and Eliaquim Mangala is a doubt. Other than that, the reigning champions are at full strength.
Manchester City v Manchester United Head to Head
There was an away win for each in last season’s EPL fixtures
The head to head is even at two wins each and a draw in the last six league games
Three of the last four league meetings at the Etihad have gone under 1.5 goals
The Citizens are only D1 L2 in their last three home league games against United
Both teams have scored in just four of the last nine league meetings
Manchester United News and Form
United got a good 2-1 away win at the in-form Bournemouth last weekend as they hung on and rode their luck for the three points. That moved them on to a W3 D1 record in their last four league games now. They have had their issues at the back as they have conceded the first goal in four of their last five league games now. Looking at the away goals which they have conceded this season, 70% of them have been in the first half of games. The Red Devils have been trailing at halftime in half of their road games (W2D1).
Overall home and away this season Manchester United have produced just the one clean sheet, which was in a win at Burnley on September 2nd. Because they have scored at least two goals in each of their last four league games now, both teams to score is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 8th, 2018 at 3:50 pm). There have been over 2.5 goals in each of Manchester United’s last five league games as well.
Romelu Lukaku remains a doubt through injury after missing their last couple of games. Their overall away record in the top flight this term is W3 D1 L2 and they have collected just the one win in their last three (D1 L1). They have already met two of the current top four this season, losing against Spurs and drawing with Chelsea in those games. The Red Devils have scored exactly two goals in all but one of their away games this season. Only the current bottom five in the standings have conceded more league goals than Manchester United have done this season.
Who will win – Manchester City v Manchester United Predictions
The Citizens have the clear edge of the two clubs in the Manchester derby and it hard to look past them. There are a lot of things defensively wrong with the Red Devils and who better to exploit them then the best attack in the league? Home win.
