The City Derby

Premier League champions Manchester City are seeking a third consecutive victory against their rivals, Manchester United, and Erik ten Hag will get his first taste of the Manchester derby. Manchester City is currently leading the Premier League.

Erling Haaland, who has scored 14 times in 10 games for Pep Guardiola’s team, will be counted on to lead the home team’s offensive attack this weekend. Although In the March matchup, City won 4-1 at home with braces from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez., Erling Haaland will be expected to provide the hosts’ weekend goal threat.

If United can win the bragging rights in their local derby, they will draw within two points of City in the standings. Following consecutive losses to Brighton and Brentford, the team coached by Ten Hag has shown remarkable resiliency by winning four Premier League matches since the beginning of the season.

While Manchester United has overcome a slow start to the season to win four games in a row, they are currently five points behind their city rivals. In contrast, City appeared to be in excellent shape as they headed into the international break.

The latest team news of Man City vs Man United.

After sustaining what initially appeared to be a hamstring injury when playing for England against Germany earlier this week, John Stones will not be able to participate in the derby.

Aymeric Laporte, on the other hand, has resumed training after undergoing knee surgery in the summer. Still, it seems possible that this weekend’s match will come too soon for him to participate. Aside from that, Kyle Walker is back to total health for City, while Nathan Ake is currently the favorite to pair Ruben Dias in the middle of the defense rather than Manuel Akanji.

For Manchester United, it is inevitable that Harry Maguire will be unable to play, and Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial face a frantic sprint against the clock to be fit for the trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Recent weeks have seen several patients in the treatment room, including Donny van de Beek (knock), Martin Dubravka (thigh), and Brandon Williams.

The expected starting XI for Man City vs Man United

The hamstring injury that John Stones sustained while playing for England against Germany on Monday will likely sideline him for ten to fourteen days. Aymeric Laporte is getting closer to recovering from knee surgery. Still, it is anticipated that Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji will continue to play essential roles in the City defense.

During the previous game, City defeated Wolves 3-0, and Jack Grealish made a strong impression by scoring his first goal of the season. Because he was not allowed to play in England’s most recent match, he can now return to club duty relatively refreshed.

  • Ederson (GK) — Walker, Akanji, Dias, Cancelo — De Bruyne, Rodri, Silva — Foden, Haaland, and Grealish — are expected to start for Man City in their planned (4-3-3) lineup.

In the victory for Arsenal, Marcus Rashford scored twice before leaving the game owing to an injury to his hamstring. However, England forward has returned to training, and if he is fit to play, that will mean that Cristiano Ronaldo will open the game on the bench rather than in the starting lineup. Anthony Martial, who has been sidelined by injury since the start of the 2022–2023 season despite having a successful preseason, is also participating in team training again.

After a successful international break with England, Luke Shaw will push for a starting position. Still, club captain Harry Maguire will not be playing because he sustained an injury late in the match when England drew 3-3 with Germany in the UEFA Nations League.

  • Rashford, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, McTominay, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes, and Sancho are the players who are anticipated to start for Man United in their 4-2-3-1 formation. De Gea will be in goal.

The betting odds for Man City vs Man United

Since the City has been in such good shape since Haaland’s arrival, they are, without a doubt, the bookmakers’ clear favorites. The Blues have a perfect record of four wins out of four at the Etihad Stadium and have played in every game this season and scored 16 goals there.

Before the difficulties of the previous season, United had an impressive recent record in this matchup. However, that record has now been ruined. In the four league matches during the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, the Red Devils won three, tied one, and lost just once.

Predictions for Man City vs Man United

Although Manchester City appears to be operating at peak efficiency so far this campaign, there is no telling whether or not an international break won’t throw off their rhythm. The poor start that Manchester United had to the season has been partially overcome, but their performances in the Europa League have been far from convincing.

You wouldn’t bet against Erling Haaland adding to his record-breaking form on Sunday in his first Manchester derby. He has scored in all but one of the games, and you wouldn’t want to bet against him. Even though I think it will be a competitive game, the hosts have more than enough to put United to the sword and win convincingly.

It will be a 2-0 triumph for Man City.
