Manchester United is currently struggling a lot to get the 3 points after final whistle when Manchester City is playing a comfortable match against any team including Chelsea, Sevilla, Sunderland etc. On the other hand, Manchester United’s journey is consisted with so many ups and downs. They have won some critical matches when drawn some easy-to-get 3 points matches.
Manchester United VS Manchester City Match Preview
After a long time, Manchester United is going to play against Manchester City. Here is the match preview of Manchester United VS Manchester City. This is surely going to be a sensational match since both of the teams are struggling for holding the top position.
Current form of Manchester United
Currently Manchester United is playing better than the starting of Premier League 2015/16. With the help of Martial, United has got an extra power. However, the current No. 7 shirt holder, Depay is not up to the mark and Old Trafford boss, Louis van Gaal has already warned him. In the last Premier League match, the captain Rooney has removed the away goal draught by scoring a sensational goal, which was assisted by another goal scorer, Ander Herrera.
However, the last match of Champions League was much stressful for Manchester United since they have lost easy 3 points and rather than 3, they have got only 1 point by making the match draw against CSKA Moskva. The early 15 minutes goal of Doumbia made Manchester United promiscuous. However, the new signing, Martial equalized the goal on 65th minutes. According to LVG, their traditional 4-3-3 combination is working good and better than earlier.
Current form of Manchester City
This team is on fire with De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Sterling, Toure etc. Although, some brutal players like Silva, Nasri, Aguero etc. are out of the squad, yet, Citizens are playing the same game. Pellegrini has set such a great 4-4-2 formation with the new signings that is quite difficult to disintegrate. However, City was in trouble against Sevilla in Champions League match and that yields 1-1 before 90th minutes. Though, De Bruyne’s last minute goal helped Manchester City to grab the 3 points, yet that was much difficult. However, the form of City’s player can be an extra pressure for Manchester United. Manchester City has a great record in this derby. They have won 6 matches out of 8 derbies.
Expected starting lineup of Manchester United
Just like previous matches, Depay can be found on reserve bench. If that is true, the starting lineup should be looking like this,
De Gea; Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Rojo; Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin; Lingard, Herrera, Martial; Rooney.
Expected starting lineup of Manchester City
As of now, there is no news to get those brutal strikers back. Therefore, Manchester City’s starting lineup would be looking like this,
Hart; Zabaleta, Otamendi, Mangala, Sagna; Toure (c), Fernandinho; Navas, Sterling, De Bruyne; Bony.
