Manchester City versus Manchester United Preview

Over the past 10 years, the two big Manchester teams colliding on the pitch has been quite the exciting prospect. Manchester City has risen to prominence in the Premier League, and the likelihood is that they will be intending to keep that strong lead when they meet Manchester United on Sunday, March 7 at 16:30. United will, of course, be looking to halt the advance of the top team, which has secured wins in its previous 20 games.

 

Even prior to that, City ended up with a 1-1 draw against West Brom on December 15, 2020, and United and City met up on December 12 for their own 0-0 draw. In all head-to-heads that the two teams have met in, City has scored 9 wins while United have claimed 8. However, City has claimed the most away wins in these games. The latest result from these two teams came in the EFL Cup semi-final on January 6, which saw City come away with the 2-0 victory.

 

Before United reach the game against City, the team will get to see how they stand when they face Crystal Palace on Wednesday, March 3. City, on the other hand, will take on the Wolves on Tuesday, March 2 to get their footing for the upcoming Sunday match.

 

The previous Man City game saw them take on West Ham for a 2-1 victory. Goals were scored by Dias at the 30-minute mark and Stones at 68 minutes. City had possession of the ball 64% of the time during that game and had 10 shots at the goal, with three being on target. Meanwhile, United’s previous outing saw them in a 0-0 finish against Chelsea. United took 18 shots at scoring, with six of those being on target, but made 11 fouls during gameplay.
