EPL Man City United

The ‘noisy neighbours’ will be in the red half of the town as Manchester United welcome Manchester City to their Old Trafford stadium. This Manchester derby will be played on Sunday, October 25th which you can read about below as we offer up our soccer betting tip.

Very little separates these two teams at the moment. City leads the English Premier League (EPL) table by two points from Arsenal and United. The two Manchester teams also top possession stats which makes this fixture an exciting must-watch.

United have lost their edge to City in recent times but Louis Van Gaal is slowly trying to build that aura back. City have looked good this season but not entirely unbeatable. The solid performance of the back four is a comfort for the home side but their long trip to Russia mid-week is an unwanted distraction.
Manchester United are unbeaten at home this season in EPL. They won three of their four home games and have shown reasonable consistency letting only a single goal through. Van Gaal is close to settling on his best XI, though the injury to Luke Shaw is a setback.

For the home side, this is another chance to put it past their rich neighbours who have overtaken them in the recent past. After the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, the blue-half of Manchester has asserted its supremacy on the field. Another loss will not just be morale shattering for United but also detrimental to their hopes of mounting a title challenge.

Manchester City, on the other hand, have been the form side of the season so far. Their twin losses to West Ham and Tottenham Hotspurs dragged them back but the dominant wins against Newcastle United and Bournemouth at home got them back on track. The Citizens scored 11 goals in those matches conceding just two.
A derby win will put City ahead of their neighbours by five points. In a season in which they have high hopes to do well in Europe, a cushioning domestic lead will help them balance their priorities. The injury to Sergio Aguero is a huge blow but the form of Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne is a welcome boost for Manuel Pellegrini.

Derbies are always difficult to predict – wherever they are played in the world. United will be desperate to cling to their neighbours and not cede further ground. Expect both teams to battle out a draw at odds of $3.30 at CrownBet.
