Manchester City vs Manchester United 02.10.2022
The Premier League resumes this weekend with one of the most mouth-watering fixtures thus far – the first Manchester derby of the season. Man City will welcome their cross-town rivals to the Etihad this Sunday afternoon. They remain undefeated to start the season and their new signing Erling Haaland has quickly adjusted to life in the Premier League like fish in water. The Blues are second on the table, just a point behind Arsenal and this will be their first real test of the season.
United had a woeful start to the season with back-to-back losses including a 4-0 loss at home to Brentford which had many questioning the summer hiring of Ajax’s former coach Eric Ten Haag. They however got their act together and have since railed off four consecutive impressive wins including over rivals Liverpool and Arsenal and they are firmly back in the title race.
This fixture is never short of drama. Both teams are in great form and have been clicking particularly well upfront. With the quality of attackers on both sides, we fancy an open-ended encounter that could possibly yield quite a few goals both ways.
