Manchester United vs Manchester City, EPL 12.12.2020

Manchester United and Manchester City lock go head to head at Old Trafford this Saturday’s Premiership action for their first derby of the season.

MANCHESTER UNITED

The Red Devils are having a bit of a mixed bag as their turns so far for this season are concerned. Despite starting poorly, they have steadily climbed up the EPL standings, primarily on the back of their historic performances on their travels in the league. They have won a club-record nine successive games on the road, including all five away league games this season, in which they incredibly mounted stirring comebacks in all of them.

Conversely, their home form is nothing worth writing home about. They’ve only won one of their five home games in the league this season. That win actually came last weekend as they edged a 1-0 win over West Brom, thanks to a retaken penalty.

MANCHESTER CITY

After finishing a distant second to Liverpool in the title race last season, many pundits predicted Man City would reclaim the title this season and they were expected to key in their intentions to do just that right from the get-go. That has not happened. Like their neighbours, they have also had a rather slow start to their season by their standards. They make the short trip across town sitting below them bitter rivals on the league table.

Defeats against Leicester and Tottenham and draws with Liverpool and West Ham have left them playing catch-up in the title race and have struggled to play to their potential for the most part.They have however shown some flashes of the brilliance they are known for in recent weeks. Victory at Fulham was their first back-to-back of the season.

Guardiola also has a virtually fully fit squad to choose from.

MAN UNITED V MAN CITY BETTING PREDICTIONS

Defeat in the Champions League means the spotlight is once again on United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. His Manchester United career has basically been a tale of him winning games exactly like this, in between poor results. It is worth noting that he did the league double over City last season. United have had lackadaisical starts to some of their these matches in which they’ve performed poorly this season and that’s the one area Solskjaer is likely looking to correct. To this end, we are expecting a close first half and we are backing Under 1.5 first-half goals @ 1.52 with Bet9ja as our first betting tip for this game.

Both teams have had a bit of a revival in their Premier League campaigns after enduring less than ideal starts. Man City scored 7 goals in their wins over Burney and Fulham. However, they seem to have a hard time keeping a clean sheet on their travels. United’s attack has been quite good, despite some of their poor results. They’ve scored in their last eight straight games. With the quality of attacking players on the pitch for both teams, we feel there is value in backing both teams to score @ 1.57 with Bet9ja betting app for our final betting tip of this clash.
