Manchester United vs Manchester City 14.01.2023
Red-hot Manchester will look to continue their newfound success on the pitch when they welcome cross-town rivals Manchester City to Old Trafford in what could be their most important fixture to date so far as their title ambitions are concerned. The Red Devils are on a 6-game winning streak across all competitions and a 4-match winning streak in the Premier League that has seen them storm into the top four after the World Cup break, with just 4 points separating them and their 2nd placed rivals. They are also in the running for both domestic cup competitions.
Champions Manchester City suffered a shocking upset in the quarterfinal of the League Cup in midweek after they lost 2-0 away at Southampton who have proven to be one of their kryptonite in recent seasons. Pep Guardiola will demand a response from his charges with the race for the title expected to get really tight and explosive in the next few weeks with the top 4 teams playing each other literally back-to-back.
With so much on the line in this derby, we can expect an overly physical encounter here with potential for cynical challenges. Stuart Atwell the centre referee is likely to have his hands full trying to control emotions in this game. We are backing the game to have at least 4 bookings.
Main tip: Over 3.5 Bookings (go to tip details)
