Match Preview: Man City vs. Man Utd
Despite Man City's dominance over the past few years the Manchester derby has remained hard to call. If you look at the last five meetings between these two above you can see that Man City have won two, Man Utd have won two and there was one draw and in neither of these games did either team win by more than one goal.
You just need to re-watch the highlights of their last game, in a topsy turvy match in which Man City threw away a 2-0 lead eventually losing 3-2 to understand how unpredictable this fixture can be.
Man Utd's Lukaku will be a big name that could be missing from the team sheet after the Belgian has slipped down the pecking order at Old Trafford. Something that ex-Man Utd midfielder Darren Fletcher says has been a positive for Man Utd
"I think there is more fluidity and a lot more movement with that front three"
Martial has been on fire recently, scoring five goals in five games and Rashford has become somewhat of a super-sub, with Mourinho using his pace and direct play against tired defences. We think though that Man Utd will need his energy from the start against their City rivals.
Man City hit six against Southampton, but despite the rout Guardiola was unhappy with some of the defending saying
"We played so well with the ball but not without the ball. We were not stable behind"
Man City's defence will need to be in top form against a Man Utd side who are starting to find their goalscoring rhythm again.
Both teams will play in the Champions League this week, with Man City hosting Shakhtar Donetsk and Man Utd travelling to Turin to face Juventus.
