The champion Manchester City hosts Manchester United in the great derby of Manchester on Saturday.

The champion Manchester City hosts Manchester United in the great derby of Manchester on Saturday. These two great rivals will go toe to toe at the Etihad Stadium. Let’s discuss this clash.

Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola admitted that for his team it would be impossible to win the title this season. At this moment the Cityzens are third in the Premier League standings, trailing on 11 points behind the leader Liverpool. Given the fact that Liverpool are almost flawless since the start of the season, it would be very difficult for Man City to defend their title.

During the week Manchester City had a visit to Burnley at the Turf Moor, which they won convincingly with 4-1. Gabriel Jesus scored a brace for the champions, while Rodri and Riyad Mahrez also scored for the visitors.

Against Manchester United the Cityzens will be without the suspended Ilkay Gundogan and the injured Sergio Aguero, Aymeric Laporte and Leroy Sane. Once again Guardiola will have to make some adjustments to his line-up, but he’s pretty good at it.

After beating Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham during the week, Manchester United approach this derby with a high confidence. The win against Spurs allowed United to climb up to 6th place in the standings, just two points behind the 5th Wolves.

Against Tottenham Manchester United celebrated a 2-1 win. Marcus Rashford scored both goals for the hosts, who enjoyed beating their former manager Mourinho. For the Special One this was a first defeat since his appointment at Spurs.

On Saturday Manchester United will be without Anthony Martial, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah who are sidelined with injuries.

We can make the conclusion that Manchester City and Manchester United both have nothing to lose on Saturday. We believe that we will see another great derby between these two great rivals in the Premier League.
