Manchester United vs Manchester City Predictions
Manchester United to Win or Draw @ 1.91 (10/11)
Looking at what Erik Ten Hag has done with Manchester United in the last few months, it’s hard to look past the Red Devils in this tie. They have won their last six games in all competitions and haven’t dropped points since the restart. Manchester United’s performance in their winning streak is very impressive. They have scored fifteen goals in six games and have conceded just once in six games, keeping five clean sheets.
Manchester City has faced three teams this year, and they have won just one of those teams – Chelsea. The Citizens have often failed to replicate their form in the first half of the season and have been complacent. They were criticized heavily by their head coach in the defeat against Southampton. In the last few months, Man Utd has picked up more points than City, and they’re very likely to avoid defeat in this game. A bet on Man United to win or draw is a very valuable offer.
Both Teams to Score @ 1.67 (4/6)
The Manchester derby features two of the top teams in league with world-class players. Manchester City has the record for most goals in the league this season and is averaging over two goals per game. The hosts have also been productive up front, scoring in 14 consecutive games. Both teams met twice last year in the league, and each side was on the scoresheet in both games.
Marcus Rashford to Score Anytime @ 3.75 (11/4)
Marcus Rashford is one of the best strikers in the league currently. He has been in sensational form since December, scoring in six consecutive games. The English forward has scored seven goals in his last six games in all competitions, and Man Utd would be betting on his goals once again. Backing Marcus Rashford to score is of great value in this fixture.
