🆚 Gameweek: 9 of 38

🗓 Date: Sunday, 2 Oct. 2022

Manchester United started the season with a nightmare, back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Brentford. However, Erik ten Hag’s men have shaken off that and are on a 4-match winning streak in the league.

The Red Devils beat Liverpool 2-1, Southampton 0-1, Leicester 0-1, and Arsenal 3-1.

United lost 0-2 at home before a 4-1 thumping at the Etihad in the derby last season. They will be up for the challenge and hope for a better result this time.

Elsewhere, the defending champions Manchester City started the season on the right foot, though they are not at the top of the table. They are 4 points off the top with a game in hand.

With Erling Haaland seemingly unstoppable, scoring 11 goals in 7 matches, the Citizens will be keen to secure all three points.

Man City drew 1-1 against Aston Villa before winning 0-3 against Wolves in their last two league games.

Manchester City vs Manchester United Prediction

The Red Devils are on a good run of form. They are on a 4-match winning streak in the league, beating the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, and Leicester.

However, it would be a difficult afternoon for Erik ten Hag’s men in the Etihad. With Erling Haaland in insane form, everyone would expect him to find the target.

The hosts have more than enough to put United to the sword, though we predict it will be a close contest.
