Manchester United vs Manchester City Match Preview
Manchester City recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Tottenham at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Wednesday’s local derby against Manchester United. The Citizens have been producing splendid displays in the 2018/2019 Premier League season, but they have yet to cement top position in the standings. Key attacker Kun Aguero picked up a minor injury against Spurs, but he is likely to lead the line for the visitors against Man Utd in the Manchester derby.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, are eyeing a place in the Champions League and they will be looking to bounce back from an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Everton when they welcome Man City at their Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the defeat to the Toffees and given the importance of Wednesday’s clash for the league leaders, away win should be considered.
