There is a huge Manchester derby coming up on the weekend in the Premier League and that will produce an epic battle between the current top two in the division. Will the Red Devils be able to do enough to be the ones to stop the winning streak that their rivals Manchester City are currently on in the top flight? That would mean a lot to Jose Mourinho’s men and their fans.
The Red Devils go into the Old Trafford clash eight points behind the league leaders so this is at least a chance for them to close the gap and perhaps put a little bit of pressure on Pep Guardiola’s men going into the busy December fixture list. The Red Devils themselves are on a four-match winning streak in the top flight and impressed last weekend by getting on the front foot in a road game at Arsenal, taking down the Gunners 3-1.
However, they did give up a wealth of chances at the back and only the brilliance of David de Gea kept them in the game at times. Manchester City, who have netted an average of over three goals per game in the top flight, of course, need no invitation to stick the ball in the back of the net with the talent that they have. They will be defending a 100% record out on the road this season in the Premier League.
You won’t see this kind of price often, but Manchester United are 12/5 to win a home game, with the Citizens going as 11/10 favourites at Paddy Power to pick up yet another win and take a massive step forward in the Premier League title race. There is some scoring talent on show in this one from United’s Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus for Man City.
