Manchester City v Manchester United Preview, Premiership, Sunday 20th March 2016

Manchester City head into this game with 9 games of the season left to try and catch Leicester City who currently lead the way at the top of the league table and if they are to keep those hopes alive then this is a must win game on Sunday afternoon against arch rivals Manchester United.

Manchester United head into the game still in contention of securing a Champions league place as they are only 4pts behind Manchester City who currently occupy the final Champions league spot. A victory in this game would move United to within just 1pt of City and that really does make this game a mouth watering affair with both sides desperately needing to win to keep different dreams alive.

Manchester City Team News:

Vincent Kompany will be out for a number of weeks having picked up a calf problem, so he definitely misses out of this important match along with fellow central defender Nicolas Otamendi (dead leg) who is a doubt.

Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne (knee), Fabian Delph (Achilles) and Samir Nasri (thigh) are close to a return and could see some friendly action during the forthcoming international break.

Manchester United Team News:

Ander Herrera is a doubt for United with the groin issue that forced him to sit out Thursday’s Europa League fixture. Ashley Young and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson could come back into contention having returned to training, while Adnan Januzaj and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are available having been ineligible against Liverpool.

Wayne Rooney (knee), Luke Shaw (leg) and Will Keane (groin) remain absent, while Phil Jones is also out of contention.

Manchester City v Manchester United Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday afternoon’s fixture from the Etihad Stadium will become the 147th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Manchester City have managed to secure 43 victories overall with 25 of these having come with home advantage, where as Manchester United have managed 57 victories overall with 26 of those having came away from home.

Our head to head statistics table below shows the last five matches played between the two clubs and as we can see Manchester City have a clear advantage heading into this game having won three times, compared to Manchester United having won just the once and the remaining game having finished all square.

25/10/15 PRL Manchester United – Manchester City 4 : 1
12/04/15 PRL Manchester United – Manchester City
4 : 2
02/11/14 PRL Manchester City – Manchester United 1 : 0
25/03/14 PRL Manchester United – Manchester City
0 : 3
22/09/13 PRL Manchester City – Manchester United 4 : 1

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

412 Goals have been scored in the previous 146 matches played between the two clubs over the years, which provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.82.

205 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 74 matches played between the two clubs at the Etihad Stadium which generates us an average goals per game statistic of 2.77.

Both sets of statistics seem to suggest that this game should see at least a few Goals scored on Sunday afternoon and betting markets such as Both Teams to Score, Total Match Goals 2 or 3 and Over 2.5 Goals all look good betting options for this match.

Manchester City v Manchester United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Manchester City know that any mistakes from their last 9 matches of the season will definitely cost them any chance they might of had of catching Leicester City in the race for the Premiership title and this game is certainly a banana skin as United would love nothing more than to put a huge dent in City’s title ambitions.

However, until United get back their key players who have been out injured for a few weeks now I just can’t see them being strong enough to win this game and as the previous few games show, Manchester City have been far the more dominant side in recent years.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this match is going to be for Manchester City to Win as they do look great value with the online bookmakers and with home advantage and this being a must win game, I fully expect the hosts to come through.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be the assassin who is Sergio Aguero as I really like the way he goes about his work up front and with him not having had a great season so far by his standards, he will definitely want to finish stongly.
