One of the most interesting matches of the 27th round of the English Premier League will take place on Sunday at Etihad.
Manchester City will face Manchester United
Fans are eagerly awaiting the thrilling and spectacular 185th Manchester derby. Although it is often difficult to name a favorite in this pair, it is clear that Pep Guardiola’s team is in wonderful shape and it will be difficult for the Red Devils to play with his team. The City is unbeaten in 28 games in a row and have won all of their last 21 games, including 15 in the Premier League.
Manchester United have not been looking very well in recent matches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have draws in their last three games – against Real Sociedad in the Europa League and against Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the Premier League. Overall, the Red Asses have drawn 4 of their last 5 Premier League games and won only one. The team of the Norwegian specialist team looks good in the away championship matches. The Mankunians have not lost 21 away matches.
Position of MU and City coaches
“I do not worry. I can control what is happening here at Manchester United. We want to close the gap with the City and get closer. They have a fantastic streak. They won 21 games in a row. We didn’t lose. 21 away matches. So, one of the records cannot be broken.
Guardiola added that “They have strong players in every position. They have Bruno Fernandez who is the best player. This is Manchester United, always a top-class team. My goal is to do what we have been doing lately and introduce myself.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been unbeaten in their last ten games, and in all of their last 20 matches in all competitions, the Red Devils have lost just two games – 1-2 Sheffield United and 0-2 Manchester City. Although the team of Norwegian specialists often lose points, as you can see, it is not an easy task to defeat them.
