Manchester City v Manchester United Match Preview & Trends

Will Manchester be blue or red on Sunday evening? It is certainly a shade of blue at present with City at their imperious best and undefeated in 19 matches. United’s recent slump is no doubt a concern for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as we approach the business end of the season. Manchester City are 14 points clear of Manchester United at the top of the table. The Cityzens won their last Premier League match 4-1 at home against Wolves whilst United drew 0-0 for the 3rd straight match when they travelled to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace. The Red Devils have done well in recent matches against their neighbours but will be worried about what awaits them at the Etihad on this occasion. City are the leagues top scorers and have the meanest defence too but United have not lost away from in the Premiership for over a year. Something has to give! Pep Gurdiola’s side have an impressive home record having scored in 100% of their home matches and netted the opening goal in 85% of their matches. The champions-elect have led at halftime in 63% of their matches but United have scored in 71% of their away matches so will be confident of equalising should they fall behind
