After going through tough challenges in Turin with a dramatic win, Manchester United were in very high confidence, because in the previous two matches in the Premier League event, they also won. However, everything is proud of these results must be forgotten by the Red Devils and only leaves motivation and high confidence, because this weekend they will be faced with their rival clubs, Manchester City in the Premier League continued.
The Manchester Derby match will take place on the following Monday morning, 12 November 2018 at Etihad Stadium.
Although, Manchester United won a series of satisfying results in the past two weeks, but the rival club is statistically far superior, because of the fact they have recorded good results since the beginning of the season until now. Pep Guardiola’s team maintain an unbeaten record in the Premier League from 11 matches that have been going on consistently. While in the last five games in all competitions, Citizen won 5 consecutive wins, including when finishing Shakhtar Donetsk through a landslide score 6-0 in the European Champions League last midweek.
Playing at home may be an advantage for the defending champions, plus, most of their flagship players are in fit condition. However, Manchester United were also never underestimated. As we said, they were able to pack 3 consecutive wins in their last 3 matches, including when they dramatically won at Juventus headquarters in the middle of last week.
