Manchester City vs Manchester United Betting Tips: Form Guide

City’s Six-Shooters Flying High

It’s always unwise to assume that Manchester City are going to be at anything other than full power, and earlier in the season when they drew with Wolves and lost at home to Lyon there was a sense that normal service would be resumed very soon. Their recent form has indicated that, if anything, they’re better this season than they were last. Having lost Kevin de Bruyne for two months, they didn’t miss a beat – which is good news because, two games after getting back to fitness, he sustained another injury which could keep him out until 2019.

In recent games, their fearsome attack has carried the Citizens to excellent results. Last weekend, they thrashed Southampton 6-1, two goals and two assists from Raheem Sterling aiding Guardiola’s men to a fourth tally of 5+ goals this season. They would have to wait until Wednesday to achieve a fifth, again hitting six as Shakhtar Donetsk were crushed 6-0. A hat-trick from Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus sent the Ukrainian side to the kind of defeat that will leave a mark. Having already won 3-0 in the away leg of that double-header, City have found their stride on the continent as well as domestically.

Perhaps the most worrying bit of news for fans of any other side reading Manchester City vs Manchester United match previews is that the reigning champions have found the ability to win tight, battling games as well as the high-scoring contests. A visit to Wembley to take on Tottenham did not turn into the shoot-out it might have, and despite leading from the sixth minute, City couldn’t extend the margin. Nonetheless, they held off a Spurs side growing in confidence to win 1-0.

Mourinho Finds His Formula, Possibly

In an ordinary season, three consecutive 2-1 wins would not be seen as cause for celebration by Manchester United fans, but given the abysmal start to the season the Red Devils turned in they’ll definitely take it. Everton’s visit to Old Trafford threatened to become another poor home show for the hosts, but a Paul Pogba-inspired two-goal salvo (scored one, assisted Anthony Martial for another), offered assurance that even when Gylfi Sigurdsson slotted a penalty, United could hold on for three points.

Last weekend, a tricky visit to the Vitality Stadium looked problematic when Bournemouth led early through Callum Wilson. Martial was on the mark again to level things, and just as it looked like the game would peter out to a draw, Marcus Rashford secured all three points for United. Then came the big one – a meeting with Juventus in Turin. Juve took a 1-0 lead early in the second half through Ronaldo, which looked as though it would be enough to take them to the final whistle. Two free kicks from Juan Mata (one that went right into the net, another which went in off a Juve defender) would secure three points, and provide a real shot in the arm for United’s season.

Of course, as good as Juventus are, they are not United’s local rivals, and they don’t have the attacking riches that City can call upon. Despite a fine run of form for Mourinho’s men, there’s good reason that the hosts are out in front when it comes to Manchester United vs Manchester City betting tips for today. If Jose can pull out a win here, then there’s real reason to believe United are back.

Manchester City vs Manchester United Preview: Recent Meetings

The standout recent meeting between these sides came in April, with City knowing that a home win against their rivals would ensure them the Premier League title. All the first-half signs were that they would get it, too, when they raced into a 2-0 lead after half an hour, and while they passed up several chances to add to that lead, United’s first-half performance indicated that it wouldn’t be a problem. It was.

Paul Pogba, who was in rank poor form going into the game and had been the subject of rumours that he’d been offered to City earlier in the season, showed why he might have been welcome at the Etihad, scoring in the 53rd and 55th minute. With twenty minutes left, Chris Smalling touched home a free-kick to put United ahead, and despite all-out attack and a legitimate penalty claim for the hosts, City would have to wait to hoist the Premier League title. Of course, they still did, but Mourinho will have taken pleasure in delaying the celebrations.

Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction: Spectacular Home Win

There is little doubt that United have got themselves back into something resembling form – Juventus don’t lose at home often, and almost never when they’ve taken the lead. However, there have been false dawns in this season for United, and genuine title challengers will come to the Etihad and lose this season. Manchester United are not, as things stand, title challengers. They’ll come into this game hungry to get one over on their rivals, but questions have to be asked as to whether that will be enough. It was last season, but that may be all the more reason to expect City to be on their game here.

Our sense here is that the only sensible Manchester City vs Manchester United prediction has to be a home win. This game will be an almighty test for United’s renewed optimism, and the fact that they’ve grabbed last-minute winners in consecutive games indicates that they’re still playing for the manager. Can they make it four wins in a row? They’ll probably need to score late again to do it, and while it’s not out of the question we have to go with the logical prediction here. Manchester City to win a thrilling game, perhaps by a few goals.
