Manchester United vs Manchester City: who will win the city derby?

The match that everyone has been waiting for and watching on the calendar since the beginning of the season has finally arrived. Matchday 20 will have one of the most attractive duels in the world between two old acquaintances like Manchester United and Manchester City who will meet again at Old Trafford with the aim of meeting the new king of the city. A duel of styles in which the intensity of United will seek to overcome the possession of the Ciudadanos.

On the one hand, Erik Ten Hag's Red Devils have improved their performance in recent days and want to dream of the bump of snatching the title from Arsenal against all sports odds. Indeed, the three points at home will allow them to maintain their position in the Champions League zone and incidentally, discount three points from a direct rival like the Ciudadanos.

For its part, Manchester City was irregular in some key moments of the Premier League and this situation kept them from fighting for the title, so they will be forced to add the three points as a visitor, thus preventing the Gunners from moving further away.

Although it may seem hard to believe, the departure of their franchise player Cristiano Ronaldo was the best boost for the Red Devils. From then on, the team entered into an emotional, moral and football uplift that allowed it to climb positions and leave the middle of the table.

Manchester United found its best version from the leadership of Bruno Fernándes, the saves of David De Gea and the goalscoring contribution of Marcus Rashford who constantly unbalances in attack. Indeed, the Red Devils remain in fourth place in the standings, occupying a place in the qualifying zone for the next edition of the Champions League, as the sports forecasts had anticipated .

Ten Hag's team reaped 35 points in 17 games played as a result of 11 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, scoring 27 goals in favor and conceding 20 goals in a somewhat high, although acceptable figure.

It is worth remembering the last duels of Manchester United in the Premier League where they fell 3-1 as a visitor against Aston Villa in a surprise result for sports betting , defeated Fulham 1- as a visitor, thrashed Nottingham Forest 3-0 at home, defeated 0 -1 as a visitor to Wolverhampton and thrashed Bournemouth 3-0 at home on the last day.

Pep Guardiola is not satisfied with what has been shown by his team so far this season. The Premier League is one of the most complex tournaments in the world where any team can defeat another and this is what the Citizens suffered in their own flesh.

Manchester City has the obligation to defend the title after being champion last season, although some adverse results and the overwhelming pace of leader Arsenal kept him from fighting for the title, leaving five units behind the Gunners as an escort.

Despite having the majority of sports bets in their favor, Manchester City did not show defensive solidity and in some days they were seen to be disjointed in attack to culminate with adverse results. So far, Guardiola's team remains as Arsenal's escort with 39 points in 17 games at stake after 12 wins, 3 draws and two losses, scoring 45 goals for and conceding 16 goals.

It is worth remembering the last games of the Citizens in the Premier League: they defeated Leicester City 0-1 as a visitor, they beat Fulham 2-1 at home, they lost 1-2 at home against Brentford in an unexpected result for the England League forecasts , they thrashed 1-3 as a visitor to Leeds United, drew 1-1 against Everton away from home and closed the last day with a 0-1 away win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
