Triggers of the rivalry were rental disputes between the two neighbors. The Old Trafford stadium was damaged in the war and the Red Devils had to move. Man United played four long years on Maine Road, the living room of the Blues. The rent for it should have been astronomical. Sporting hung United City in the following years.
Outstanding is the year 1968. About the Championship of City spoke no more, after United brought the European Cup of Champions into the city. When the Skyblues could celebrate promotion from third to second division in 1999, Man United won the Triple, consisting of championship, cup and Champions League.
It seemed as if both clubs would never meet on equal terms. But far from it. Not only Sir Alex Ferguson dismissed the at that time unsuccessful neighbor as “Noisy Neighbors”. Meanwhile, the picture has completely changed.
While Man City, with star coach Pep Guardiola, set records for the past two seasons, which did not even reach Sir Alex in his big time, the Reds are looking for their identity. The Citizens dream of winning the third consecutive championship and triumphing in the premier class, while United would be happy to finish the season in fourth place.

Manchester City – Statistics & Current Form
The last month had produced a number of disappointing results for Manchester City. They lost in Liverpool, drew only two draws in the Champions League and narrow home win over Chelsea when Pep Guardiola’s team had as little possession as never before in their coaching career, followed by a disappointing 2-2 draw in Newcastle.
The Dominator of the last two seasons suddenly seemed vulnerable. At Guardiola this small earnings crisis was not without a trace. The Catalans appeared very thin-skinned at the press conferences before the games. Suddenly his decisions were criticized.
In the 4: 1 also met the Brazilian Gabriel Jesus twice and represented the currently injured Sergio Agüero excellent. In the Premier League, only compatriots Roberto Firmino (52) and Philippe Coutinho (41) scored more often than Jesus (32 goals). About the little missing in Turf Moor Argentine Jesus said:
“Sergio Agüero is a legend in football. I have to meet when I play because Sergio always scores goals. “ However, Gabriel Jesus has not met in any of his last ten competitive appearances at Etihad Stadium. The last home goal was the Brazilian in March in the Champions League against Schalke. The youngest eleven booths were made by him all abroad.
The Skyblues won for the 36th time under Pep Guardiola a Premier League match with three or more goals difference and thus since the beginning of the season 2016/17 league-wide the most. In the Derby, Manchester City vs Manchester United is according to odds the sports bookmaker for a tip first contender for three points.
The Citizens have won 24 of the last 27 Premier League home games (24-1-2). The Skyblues scored 81 goals and remained only once without a goal. Guardiola won four of his six Premier League matches against Man United (4-1-1). In the first league history of Man City, only Les McDowall (seven wins, 24 games) and Joe Mercer (five / ten) won more games against the Red Devils.
A milestone reached Riyad Mahrez. As the ninth African he cracked the mark of 50 Premier League goals (39 for Leicester, eleven for Man City). David Silva is already out of the game on six assists this season. Thus, the Spaniard prepared only one goal less than in the 33 missions before. Leroy Sane, Aymeric Laporte, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Sergio Agüero are injured.

Manchester United – Statistics & Current Form
So far, Paderborn has been in Manchester United this season. The East Westphalian Bundesliga promoted always calls against the top teams in the league from the best performance.
While the Baumgart troupe will not win the top games despite great effort, Manchester United brings important points, especially in the prestigious duels against the other top six teams.
The most recent example was the game during the week against Tottenham (2: 1). In front of home fans, United have been unbeaten in nine competitive matches (5-4-0). Although Jose Mourinho is undoubtedly a better coach than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has the better players on paper, the Red Devils won the game. Rashford and Co. wanted to show it to the Portuguese ex.
It seemed as if Mourinho’s return would motivate the team more than their own coach. Three of the five wins were celebrated against Chelsea (4-0), Leicester (1-0) and Tottenham. In addition, Arsenal and Liverpool (1: 1) jumped out a draw. The record champions have been without defeat for five Premier League matches against the established top six teams (2-3-0).
Including the four games this season. In March 2016, with coach Louis van Gaal, United remained defeated for the last time six matches of this kind. The big question, however, is whether the Red Devils can show these achievements even in foreign countries. So far, the top games took place exclusively at home. The Old Trafford club could only win one of the last eleven league away games (1-4-6).
For twelve matches in a foreign country the Red Devils did not make it to zero game anymore. In April 1986 United had to wait even longer for a “clean sheet” (15 away games). So for the Mancunian Derby between Manchester City and Manchester United our prediction for a tip is “BTS”.
Under coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Man United won seven league games abroad. The average league position of each opponent, however, was only ranked 14. Tottenham was in January 2009, when then third in the table, the only club, which had been placed in a United away win in the top half of the table.
Outstanding at the recent success was Marcus Rashford. The attacker was directly involved in his last 13 competitive games for club and country at 14 goals (twelve goals, two assists). If you look only at the latest eleven matches for United (across all competitions), the 22-year-old will come up with eleven goals (9-2).
The national team will also be in the derby, especially if Anthony Martial should fail again. Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo, Paul Pogba and Diogo Dalot are all missing.
Best goalscorers in the Premier League:
🥇 9 goals: Marcus Rashford
🥈 3 goals: Anthony Martial
🥈 3 goals: Daniel James
Expected lineup of Manchester United:
➠ de Gea; Young, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Lingard, James; Greenwood
➠ Coach: Solskjaer
