Who Will Carry the Manchester Derby Bragging Rights?

The Manchester Derby will be the highlight of EPL week 11 that starts on Friday evening with the two arch-rivals facing off at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The two teams face off at a time when United are struggling in the league, despite last week’s 3-0 win over Spurs in London, many believe that the record league champions are not of the woods yet and will need another convincing win over the Cityzens to win the confidence of their fans back.

Manchester City on the other hand suffered a shocking 2-0 defeat in the hands of Crystal Palace last week. It is an outcome that many did not see coming but somehow Patrick Vieira’s side managed to pick a huge win at the Etihad, a result that was aided by Aymeric Laporte’s first-half red card.

Ahead of the derby, both teams will miss some crucial players. For United, Raphael Varane is out with an injury while Paul Pogba will be serving the second of his three-match suspension. For City, Laporte is suspended while Ferran Torres is out with a long-term injury.

Man City have not beaten United in a league match since 2019 and this goes to show the edge United have developed under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when taking on their City rivals.
