Manchester United, after ten rounds, takes fifth place in the Premier League standings. At the moment, the Red Devils have 17 points. Manchester United had a very difficult October. The climax was a home defeat to Liverpool with a score of 0:5. It’s hard to say how after that, the club owners found the strength not to fire Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer. In addition to this game, Manchester United had a lot of frankly weak matches. But the Norwegian was still left.
However, the team responded well to the humiliating fiasco. Last week Manchester United defeated Tottenham. Interestingly, the management of Tottenham immediately said goodbye to Nuno Espirito Santo, who was replaced by Antonio Conte a few days later. The Italian was considered one of the main contenders for the Manchester United head coach post in the event of Solskjaer’s dismissal.
Manchester United played a draw game with Atalanta in the Champions League in the middle of the week. The saving goal in the last minutes was scored by Cristiano Ronaldo, who found the net twice in that game. Manchester United have won only two wins in their previous six games at Old Trafford.
“Manchester city”. Manchester City is in third place, three points ahead of Manchester United. The gap from the first line is five points. Man City unexpectedly lost at home in the previous round to Crystal Palace (0:2). The Citizens conceded the first goal shortly after the starting whistle, and shortly before the break, Aymeric Laporte received a red card. Surprising fact: Man City have already played six games this season without scoring a single goal. For the Guardiola team, this is an abnormally high number.

In the derby of Manchester, there has always been a clear favourite for years. This is definitely Man City. However, in reality, it turns out every time that Manchester United is not such an underdog in this contest. Suffice to say that only one of the five previous matches between these teams ended in favour of Man City. In three more cases, Manchester United won. And amazingly, in four games, City have never scored at all. In general, the bet on the victory of Man City can hardly be called the best option. Solskjaer knows how to play against Guardiola. Moreover, it happens that the Norwegian almost always surprises Pep.
The bet is a victory for Manchester United or a draw for 2.25. It seems that Solskjaer can prepare something special for the City with Ronaldo in the squad.
