Man United v Man City Betting Tips: Who will steal the bragging rights?
The Manchester derby is usually a fierce and frantic affair. The kings of the road versus the ‘noisy neighbours’. But there’s even more than usual riding on tonight.
We may get a city united with neither side wanting Liverpool to win the title. But United won’t want to see City lift the trophy again either.
If United win, then it could hand Liverpool the Premier League trophy. But lose and their top-four hopes look doomed, while City will be on course to triumph.
It’s a catch 22 that gears this one up to be one helluva ride and we’ve got a full rundown ahead of derby day.
The Red Devils got swept aside by Everton last weekend and regardless of the repercussions they will want a quick-start against their cross-city rivals.
You can find a United win at 11/2, which would throw the top-four race up in the air. But Man City know they can’t afford to slip up if they are to win back-to-back league titles.
A draw that would possibly be the worst result for both sides is at 10/3.
Man United will be pleased to welcome Luke Shaw back into the fold following suspension. Solskjaer could go with a back four including Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling.
Diogo Dalot’s versatility could see him rock up on either the right or left wing. Paul Pogba should be up for this one. Alexis Sanchez could even get a rare outing this evening.
As for City, they will miss the creativity of Kevin De Bruyne, but Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling have been a revelation this season.
Leroy Sane will hope to get more than a bit part role, while Fernandinho’s presence in the middle could be the difference.
Sterling has been a great shout for first goalscorer in recent weeks; the England man is 7/2 to break the deadlock.
The red half of the city has Romelu Lukaku at 15/2 to be the first man to strike. Marcus Rashford could play as the number nine and is at 3s to notch anytime.
