The legend of Manchester United, Bryan Robson, has predicted that Micheal Carrick would be the key in Manchester United vs Manchester City match at Old Trafford. As an formal interview before the Manchester derby, Robson has told the Red official that Micheal Carrick would rule the match and would prove himself that he is still an important asset of United.
Bryan Robson played nine derbies in his career at Old Trafford and he knows the club very well. Although, it’s been a long time since he left his club but still his prediction can be reality because of Carrick’s current form. At the same time, Citizens would be scared of Wayne Rooney since he is on his form in past few matches.
I feel that Michael, along with Wayne Rooney of course, will have to be right on form for us to win the game. When you look at City, they’ve got Sergio Aguero and Toure as their key men, so it’s very similar [to us with Rooney and Carrick] and very well balanced. For me, it’s who plays the best out of those four that could make the difference. – Robson
This English mid-fielder has been playing well in last few matches. Van Gaal implements this midfielder in big matches as he is perfect to play against any big team. Therefore, Van Gaal will certainly use this man in Manchester derby.
On the other hand, Yaya Toure of Manchester City is performing well and his statistics is pretty well. Therefore, it would be a great match on April 12 at Old Trafford.
Robson has told something on Toure as well,
Most of the time when Toure’s in their side he has an impact on City and their results. He’s a big-game player as well, that’s why I think it’s really important as to how Michael performs this weekend.
Only Bryan Robson, every Reds fan is looking at Carrick, Rooney, Juan Mata, Van Persie (Not sure whether he will be available for this derby or not.), Herrera and more others.
