Manchester United and Manchester City have not had their best season this time but have still managed to maintain their position in the Top 8. Anyhow, this game is much more than the importance of the points table. This is the Manchester Derby and it’s never easy for the players to play under such pressure. Each of them will have to give their best to ensure a win for their team. Manchester City qualified for the Round of 16 this week in UCL after finishing at the top of the points table. On the other hand, Manchester United got knocked out by RB Leipzig after finishing in 3rd place at the points table. As a result, they have been relegated to the UEFA Europa League.
However, talking about the Premier League, Manchester United have won their last 4 games. Contrarily, Manchester City have only won their last 2 games in the league. Apart from that, the last time the teams went up against each other was in March 2020. At that time, Manchester City defeated Pep Guardiola’s men by a score of 2-0. So, it is definitely not going to be easy for either of them to bag the 3 points from a victory against the other one. Anyhow, let us see how the managers of both teams might line up for the Manchester Derby.
Manchester United Playing 11:
De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes; Greenwood, Martial, and Rashford.
