Manchester City vs Manchester United: Prediction
Citizens are in great form and they are producing jaw-dropping football expertise on a weekly basis. Despite a defeat against the Red Devils in April, they should prove too much for Mourinho’s men for this home fixture. Moreover, Guardiola’s men are too ruthless. They will not relent to punish any mistakes and stand as the favorites to win this matchup.
The Red Devils will be looking for a third straight top-flight win as the head to the Etihad Stadium this Sunday. They will strive to come out of this daunting away fixture. Nevertheless, they will be facing a more fierce side. If they remain focused, they may pull off a fascinating stunt as they did earlier in April when they thrashed the citizens 2-3 at Etihad
