What Trueform says for Man City vs Man Utd
Manchester City were in irrepressible form when thrashing Southampton and Shakhtar and have to be fancied to enjoy derby delight on that evidence.
However, neighbours United have done well in the Premier League of late, put in a brave display when coming from behind to beat Juventus and have a fine recent record at Etihad Stadium, so they should have their moments.
We reckon everything points towards a home win and both teams to score at 31/20 being a rock-solid Man City vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City haven’t always reached the dizzy heights of last season this term but they were outstanding when crushing the Saints 6-1 and Shakhtar 6-0.
After an early own goal opened the floodgates against the Saints, Sergio Aguero netted his 150th Premier League goal and David Silva also struck to make it 3-0 inside 20 minutes.
Southampton pulled one back from the penalty spot, but then a Raheem Sterling double and Leroy Sane’s late effort emphasised the Blues’ superiority.
“It was a great team performance,” said Sterling. “The boys started really well and we were fantastic without the ball, not just with the ball.
“We needed to capitalise on Liverpool dropping points and I thought we were brilliant at times.”
In midweek, Gabriel Jesus hogged the headlines with a hat-trick, but fellow scorers Silva, Sterling and Riyad Mahrez were also excellent.
Last Man City EPL line-up: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Mendy, Sane, B Silva, D Silva, Fernandinho, Sterling, Aguero.
Playmaker Kevin De Bruyne (knee) and second-choice goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) are City’s only major absentees.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
United have put together a good run of results in this competition, dropping just two points in four top-flight fixtures – and that was when drawing at Chelsea.
The Red Devils added to recent wins over Newcastle and Everton by coming from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 on the road.
Anthony Martial maintained his hot streak with a well-taken equaliser and Marcus Rashford later bundled in a dramatic winner in stoppage time.
“We’re showing that attitude, never giving in,” declared Chris Smalling. “It’s a great feeling and it’s bringing us closer together.”
Wednesday’s 2-1 triumph at Juventus, courtesy of Juan Mata’s 86th-minute free-kick and a last-gasp own-goal, can only have enhanced that spirit.
The visitors can also take heart from April’s Paul Pogba-inspired comeback at Etihad Stadium, when recovering from 2-0 down at the break to triumph 3-2.
However, despite deserving credit for the character shown back then and more recently, United were worryingly outplayed by both the Magpies and the Cherries before rallying.
The Red Devils could be run ragged by City’s high-tempo tactics if they don’t hit the ground running here.
Let’s add 10/1 for a 3-1 home win to our Man City vs Man Utd betting tips.
Last Man Utd EPL line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Smalling, Young, Shaw, Pogba, Mata, Fred, Matic, Sanchez, Martial.
