Man United

Diogo Dalot:

preferred right back After missing both of the recent Old Trafford victories over Burnley and Nottingham Forest due to a hamstring injury, Diogo Dalot is still out of commission.

The defender missed United’s training sessions last week after suffering a hamstring strain on December 10 while representing Portugal at the World Cup.

Man City

Ruben Dias suffered a hamstring injury during Portugal’s World Cup quarterfinal loss to Morocco, and there are worries that the center-back might be sidelined for up to a month.

Man United vs Man City Score Prediction

  • Recent Momentum favors Man United
  • Man City is much stronger on the attack
  • Man City has the edge on Defense
  • Overall: Small Man City win or possibly a draw

When they last played, Manchester United and Manchester City put on a goal-scoring extravaganza in which nine goals were scored. When playing United at the Etihad, City was in cruise control. At Old Trafford, though, where United has been outstanding and has gone five games without losing, things are not anticipated to be the same. In the previous five games at Old Trafford, United has allowed just 1 goal. Man City has scored 8 goals and lets 5 goals while on the road, and their injury problems have prevented them from matching United’s home record. The performance of Marcus Rashford, who has looked on par with any forward in the world and was absent when these teams last faced off, is one of the additional factors that balance this match.

Score Prediction: In the most recent games, City has dominated Head-to-Head. The exponential improvement in Man United’s performance has evened out the playing field in this match. We predict a 2-2 tie between United and City.
