Manchester City was hammered by injuries in this season and from the biggest favorite for the title, they are now on the verge of losing the position number 4. Also, they were eliminated by outsiders Monaco in the first knockout round of this year's Champions League, and Pep Guardiola is under immense pressure in his first season in Premier League. If the Spaniard fail to finish in the top 4 , that might have serious consequences. It is unlikely that he will be sacked, but Guardiola will have to step up and bring in some major trophies in the upcoming season.

Jose Mourinho also received severe criticism this year, but it seems that Manchester United is slowly gaining confidence and they are performing better than they did at the beginning of the season. However, everything that stands for Pep Guardiola stands for Jose Mourinho, too - they spent an insane amount of money on new players and yet they are sitting only at position number five currently. This derby match might decide the fate of both teams in this season.

Both teams will be cautious. They don't want to lose this match, and although the draw shouldn't be an option for either team, we might see a boring game without a single goal scored.
