Manchester City vs Manchester United – Prediction (Premier League – 07.12.2019)




Preview and Teams Comparison.

Man Utd have only lost one of their last four away league games against Man City (W2 D1), though it was in this exact fixture last season (1-3). Only Chelsea (18) have won more Premier League games against Man Utd than Man City have (15), with 10 of those victories coming in the last eight years (67%).

Though victorious in both Manchester derbies last season, and heavy favourites again, Manchester City nevertheless need to be wary. They have won just one of the last four H2Hs against their city rivals on home turf (W1, D1, L2), despite winning by at least two goals in six of their eight competitive home wins this season. Though City have already given away more home points than they did all of last season in the Premier League (PL), the total goals output from matches involving the ‘Sky Blues’ is a league-high of 4.0 on average. An unmatched two-thirds of their outings have featured 4+ goals.

Players to watch: Bernardo Silva (MCI) has five PL goals and four assists this season, and scored one and assisted two against United last season. Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford (MUN) has been red-hot for the ‘Red Devils’, and eight of his nine PL goals have come via his right foot.

Stat attack: City have recorded 14 wins in their last 16 home PL matches, scoring two or more goals on 12 occasions. The last four H2Hs have averaged 5.25 yellow cards. United have conceded at least one goal in ten straight PL matches.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are on a high after beating Tottenham in midweek (2-1). It was their fifth straight competitive match where both teams have scored, and those five averaged a hefty 4.0 total goals. On the road, they are yet to keep a PL cleansheet this season (W1, D3, L3). On the bright side, Ole Gunnar Solkjær’s men are yet to lose against the 2018/19 top six this season (W2, D2). In all those matches, they scored the first goal of the match within the first half. However, their tally of four matches where they’ve dropped points following a first-half lead is joint-highest in the league.
