Manchester United v Manchester City Preview, EFL Cup 4th Round, Wednesday 26th October 2016

Manchester United head into this game with confidence extremely low after losing 4-0 away against arch rivals Chelsea over the weekend just gone.

That result has not only now resigned the fact that the premiership title could be beyond their reach, but also shows that despite the signing of both Ibrahimovic and Pogba and bringing in Jose Mourinho, the club continues to fall short of what is expected and that the glory days are well and truly behind them.

Manchester City head into this game having just about defended their top place in the premiership league table with a hard fought 1-1 draw at home against Southampton in their match that took place over the weekend just gone.

Southampton proved a tough nut for City to crack and were caught out at the back early on when Nathan Redmond pounced on a yet another school boy mistake by John Stones to fire his side in front.

That draw will have been difficult for the City players to accept as many people expected them to win that game quite comfortably and it will be interesting to see who both squads respond in this match on Wednesday night.

Manchester United Team News :

The hosts have no new reported injuries or suspensions but manager Jose Mourinho will probably make at least a couple of changes to the side that were beaten 4-0 by Chelsea over the weekend. Wayne Rooney and Martial both could benefit and look likely to start this one.

Manchester City Team News :

The visitors also have no reported injuries or suspensions and manager Pep Guardiola could also make some changes to his starting line up after his sides 1-1 draw at home against Southampton at the weekend.

Manchester United v Manchester City Head to Head Statistics:

Manchester City have managed to secure 44 victories overall with 19 of those having came away from home, but with Manchester City having beaten United at Old Trafford last season the visitors will definitely fancy their chances in this one.

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

United are once again having one of those season’s that has many people scratching their heads as to what is going wrong. The club spent a lot of money during the summer transfer window, bringing in both Ibrahimovic and Pogba to the squad, add to that the appointment of Jose Mourinho and it does seem quite odd to see Manchester United sitting a midtable position in the league table.

Manchester City however are having no such problems and sit proudly at the top of the premiership league table, their lead came under serious threat over the weekend, but with both Arsenal and Tottenham drawing their matches, the point secured at home against Southampton was just enough to keep them leading the way at the top.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as with United at home I am expecting them to score at least one goal during this game, add to that the attacking firepower that Manchester City have available in their squad with the likes of Aguero, Sterling and De Bruyne, it does seem almost an impossible scenario for this game not to see goals scored on Wednesday night.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip wil be for Raheem Sterling to Score 1st Goal of the Game, as with the United defence mainly focussed on De Bruyne and Aguero, this could leave the necessary space for Sterling to exploit and with his finishing looking as good as ever this season, he looks a great choice to be the one to open up the scoring in this match.
