The Manchester City vs. Manchester United match will be played on Saturday, at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester. Manchester City is currently first with 84 points, while Manchester United is second with 68 points at the moment. If Manchester City win this game, they will secure the title six games before the end of the competitions.


  • Manchester City was defeated twice in the last five games. Both of their defeats came in Champions League, while they lost only one game in Premier League so far.
  • Manchester United won five out of their last six games in all competitions. In their last two games they recorded 2:0 victories.


In their previous ten meetings, Manchester City won five games, Manchester United had three victories, while two games ended in a draw.


Manchester City suffered a tough defeat against Liverpool in the Champions League. Since they are practically secured the title in Premier League, that defeat was shocking and unexpected, although Liverpool already defeated them by 4:3 this season, and that was their only defeat in Premier League. However, in the first part of the season, Manchester City celebrated a 5:0 victory against them on Etihad, so they won't fly a white flag in the rematch. Because of that, we don't know how they'll approach the match against Manchester United. This is a derby match, which can secure the title against the biggest rival, but their self confidence level is probably on the lowest point in the season.

Manchester United wants to stay second and delay the celebration of Pep Guardiola and his team. Mourinho will probably send a defensive lineup to the field, and rely on counter attacks. If they stay undefeated, Manchester City won't secure the title in the upcoming game.
