The Manchester Derby, City vs United.
Last game played by Manchester City was a total disaster, Liverpool managed to trash the over-rated City squad, and they – Liverpool are half-way to the semi-final of the Champions League. Before they actually get there, the re-match needs to be played, again on the Etihad stadium.
Is this match of importance for Manchester City – We don’t think so.
Only a local derby.
Let’s check out their forms, h2h stats and the latest team news, and finally make an assumption of what the outcome might be.

Current form Manchester United
Manchester United have been brilliant lately. They have 4 wins and 1 lost game in the last 5 games in all competitions or 2 points per game.
Manchester United away form isn’t as brilliant as they overall form, 2 wins and 2 draws, or 1.6 points per game. Their away Premier League form is bit better then the overall away form with 3 wins and 2 lost games and 1.8 points per game on average.
Head to Head
They have a quite a history…
In their last 5 games both teams have 2 wins, and a draw, or 1.4 points per game for the two teams. Interesting stat.
Both managers seems to have the full squad at their disposal, except for two players for each of the teams.
Manchester City will be missing Aguero (their leading striker) and Mendy.
Manchester United will be missing Blind, and Romero, none of them of significant importance for the team.
Possible outcome from the Match of the Day, Match Preview: Manchester City vs Manchester United
The missing of Aguero was definitely felt in their last Champions League game, having in mind that they have the re-match on Wednesday, it’s to be believed that Guardiola will rest most of the key players in this match and will try some other tactical combinations against United.
Mourinho will use this opportunity and try to win this game and secure themselves on the second Premier League position. Thus said, Manchester United will most likely win this game.
