Manchester Derby Betting Tips
On Saturday 6th of November, one of the most anticipated games in not only English football but world football takes place at Old Trafford.
Lets have a look at some of our Manchester Derby Betting Tips.
Manchester City will make the short trip to play the Red side of Manchester.
This fixture to many fans is more than just a game, for the 90 minutes friendships will be put to the side and forgotten about.
Pep Guardiola takes his side to Old Trafford off the back of suffering a 2-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace under the guidance of Premier League great Patrick Viera.
Despite the defeat, Man City sit in 3rd position trailing the leaders Chelsea by 5 points and are the bookie’s favourites for this tie at around 5/7
This defeat was the first time City had lost a League game since the opening day of the season when they travelled to Tottenham.
On the other hand, the positive start from City this hasn’t been the case for the Reds.
Man United are 8 points off the top spot and 3 behind Saturday’s opponents and are around 18/5 with 888 Sport.
United’s previous Premier League match saw them gain victory comfortably against a poor Tottenham side, resulting in Nuno Espírito Santo losing his job as manager of Spurs.
Despite claiming 3 points last time out, this wasn’t the case when United last played at home.
Liverpool went to Old Trafford and put on a masterclass performance leaving at 5-0 winners. If you think City might do the same and put 5 past United you can get it at 60/1 here.
Ole and his men will be hoping for a massive improvement when they step out onto the pitch at lunchtime on Saturday.
In previous meetings between the 2 sides, it could be argued that United have come out on top.
Man City are without a win in their last 4 meetings with United in the league, their last victory against the Red Devils came back in April of 2019 when they won by 2 goals to 0 at Old Trafford.
In the most recent game between these two giant football teams, Manchester United claimed all 3 points after winning 2-0 at The Etihad.
Surprisingly, when the two managers have met previously Solskjaer has got the better over Pep.
The Norwegian has managed to guide his Manchester United side to victory 4 times in the 8 times in which the 3 have met.
Guardiola has beaten United 3 times when managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and will be hoping to level the head to head between the pair with victory on Saturday.
United are without French Midfielder Paul Pogba for Saturday’s fixture.
Pogba serves the second game of a 3 match ban after seeing red in the humiliating defeat to Liverpool.
Solskjaer is also unable to select summer arrival Raphael Varane, the Frenchmen was forced off the field on Tuesday in Italy after suffering with a tight hamstring.
It has since been confirmed United will be without Varane for one month due to the severity of the injury.
However, Solskjaer has got options when it comes to selection for Saturday’s game.
Fred started on the bench in midweek for the trip to Atalanta but is in contention to partner Scott McTominay in the heart of midfield on Saturday.
Also impressive performances from substitutes Jadon Sancho and Donny Van De Beek in Italy showed Solskjaer what both are capable of when called upon.
City themselves face selection issues for Saturday’s fixture.
The main absence for Guardiola is Ferran Torres who remains sidelined after picking up a foot injury while away on international break with Spain.
City are expected to make a late call on the fitness of Kyle Walker.
The Englishman played 80 minutes on Wednesday against Club Brugge before being forced off after what Guardiola went on to call a ‘big kick on the foot’
Laporte is unavailable for selection for Saturday’s match after receiving a red card against Crystal Palace.
This may pave the way for Englishman John Stones or Nathan Ake to come into the side to replace Laporte in the heart of defense.
It is well known that Manchester City often respond to defeats by following up with an impressive performance in the following fixture.
Guardiola and his staff will be hoping this is the case on Saturday and can kick on and close the gap to Thomas Tuchels side.
Manchester United will be hoping this isn’t the case and will be hoping for a big performance of their own.
A player who loves the big occasion is Cristiano Ronaldo.
Since his arrival back to Manchester Ronaldo has scored many important goals when they’ve been needed.
Games such as both games against Atalanta and Villarreal at home are just some examples of when Man United have been saved by a big goal from Cristiano.
In the summer Manchester City signed Jack Grealish from his boyhood club Aston Villa for a record breaking £100m.
But many have been questioning Man City’s need for Grealish.
Since his arrival to Manchester Grealish has managed to get 1 goal and 2 assists.
This record has not shown Jack’s full potential with many questioning if Grealish was a needed addition to an already world class Man City squad.
What do you think? Will Grealish succeed at Manchester City?
