When Manchester United hosts treble-winning Manchester City on Sunday October 29th, their run of 3 consecutive victories is going to be at stake. Despite Man Utd’s little improvement in performance, which includes victories over Sheffield United and Brentford in the league and a thrilling Champions League victory over Copenhagen, fans still lack genuine confidence ahead of the team’s opening Manchester derby of the year. The reigning Premier League winners City may have lately faltered with losses to Wolves and Arsenal, but they have bounced back with victories over Brighton and Young Boys in the Champions League.
Both Manchester clubs arrive here fresh off victories in the Champions League midweek and the Premier League the previous weekend, both by a score of 2-1. Andre Onana’s last-second penalty save versus Copenhagen in midweek gave United a small break in their quest for a European spot. With less than fifteen minutes remaining, Diogo Dalot scored the game-winning goal against Sheffield United just a few days prior, extending the streak of victories to 3 matches. Last week, City defeated Brighton, and in the middle of the week, they overcame Young Boys in Switzerland. Despite starting the weekend in 2nd place, Pep’s team may fall even further behind if Spurs prevail in their Friday evening matchup. Guardiola must be thinking about this as well because they have now gone 6 matches without a clean sheet, and things don’t appear to be getting better.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, will not be able to use players like Amad Diallo, Lisandro Martínez, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, and Kobbie Mainoo who are all injured.
At the moment, Man City’s injury report seems quite decent, with Zack Steffen and Kevin De Bruyne being the only prominent players sidelined. Although De Bruyne is certainly a major loss, Pep Guardiola still has a wealth of offensive options.
