Manchester City FC – Manchester United FC betting tip & odds comparison 02.10.2022

Manchester City will be looking to continue their terrific start to the season when they host bitter cross-town rivals Manchester United in the first Manchester derby of the season.

City are undefeated in 7 matches to start the season and sit just in 2nd place just a point behind leaders Arsenal. United on their part have recovered from a slow start to rack up 4 straight league wins that has propelled them into the top 5.

We fancy a fiery encounter here given the context of the game. We will explore our betting tips for this clash from Parimatch and Betwinner.

MANCHESTER CITY

The biggest story coming out of the blue half of Manchester has of course been Erling Haaland’s terrific start as a Manchester City plater. The son of former City midfielder Alfe Inge has scored an incredible 14 goals in his first 10 appearances for the Blues. He has certainly unlocked Pep Guardiola’s offence giving it a dimension they have previously not really had during his tenure at the Etihad.

The defending champions are off to a great start to the season and they look even more formidable to go on another title run this term. They sit a point behind Arsenal in 2nd place after their 3-0 win over Wolves before the break.

As he is wont to do, Pep will rotate his squad here but he will still put his faith in midfielder Kevin De Bruyne to continue pulling the strings like he has been doing like a maestro conducting a Concerto. His two assists at Wolves put him at par with Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard with 92 Premier League assists. With Haaland at the other end, they will be quite a handful for the United defence here.

MANCHESTER UNITED

Manchester United lost back-to-back games to start the season – the second one being an embarrassing 4-0 loss at home to Brentford. They however recovered well from this poor start and proceeded to put together an impressive run of four straight Premier League wins, claiming some big scalps including Liverpool and Arsenal while at it!

Erik ten Hag who took charge of United in the summer has had the unenviable task of blending new signings with the old guard in United. He has done a commendable job thus far though. New signings Lisandro Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Antony and Tyrell Malacia have all made their mark in their starting roles and last summer’s signings Varane and Sancho appear to have settled down well in their sophomore seasons.

Keeping City at bay is always a tough ask for any team, especially in their backyard where they have been scoring goals for fun. United though have shown they have the tactical nuance under Ten Haag to trouble even the best of teams

MAN CITY VS MAN UNITED PREDICTIONS

This is a significant clash for both of these teams. We expect them to both have a go at it and with the quality of attacking players we have on both sides, this is likely to be a high-scoring affair. City average over 4 goals a game at the Etihad this season and Haaland is on pace to score a third successive hat-trick at home. United have looked great in attack on their way to 4 successive Premier League victories. For our opening betting tip today, we are therefore going for Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.42 with Parimatch.

The opening goal of this game is likely to have a significant imprint on how the game will play out. United will be keen to break the deadlock as that will force City to play into their hands as opposed to the other way round which will certainly see De Bruyne control the possession and have United chasing shadows. With a significant number of players on both sides having been involved in the international games, this game could afford United a great opportunity to catch City cold with their counterattacking play. It is worth noting that the Blues have trailed here to Crystal Palace and Dortmund this season. We are therefore picking the Reds to open the scoring @ 3.48 with Betwinner Bonus as our last call for this game.
