Manchester City Confident of Another Home Win

Manchester City is 18-5-3 this season in the Premier League, with a home record of 9-4-0. The Cityzens are undefeated on their turf, not just in the Prem, but in every competition they’re taking part in. The last time they lost a competitive game at Etihad Stadium was in November 2022.

They also have a fantastic home record against Manchester United, having won each of their last three duels at Etihad. They also beat the Red Devils on the road the last time they played. It happened last October when the final score at Old Trafford was 3-0 for the visitors.

Erling Haaland scored twice in that game and assisted Phil Foden for the third goal. The 23-year-old Norwegian hasn’t been in too great form since returning from an injury in January. In fact, he scored only three goals in total in his last seven games. But maybe the Manchester Derby is when he’ll get back to his old ways?

Manchester United to Go All-In on Sunday

The Red Devils are sitting in the No. 6 position in the Prem, but they still have Champions League ambitions. For that, they need to break into the Top 4, which wouldn’t be so difficult if their form hadn’t been so inconsistent.

This month, for example, we saw them win four EPL games in a row – including against EPL No. 4 Aston Villa – before losing to Fulham at home.

This is a team you never know what to expect from, but one thing is clear – Man United does have a pretty good roster in 2024. The problem is that some of the Red Devils’ key men are injured (e.g., Rasmus Hojlund), while some are completely out of form (e.g., Marcus Rashford).

Manchester City vs. Manchester United Prediction

Our Manchester City vs. Manchester United prediction is another win for the home team. The Cityzens have the motivation, skills, and fan support to beat their archrivals on Sunday.

In fact, we’re surprised that they’re not even bigger favorites with odds much shorter than -340. In our eyes, Guardiola’s men should be at least -500 favorites – that’s how sure we are that they’re going to win.
