Man Utd vs Man City Lineups and Last Match

Man Utd

Man Utd narrowly beat winless Shef Utd last weekend at Bramall Lane. McTominay got the start he deserved and rewarded ten Hag with the opening goal of the game in the 28th minute. The Blades managed to equalise via a 34th-minute penalty but Man Utd got back in front with what turned out to be the winning goal through Dalot 13-minutes from the end. Martinez, Malacia, Shaw and Diallo look set to miss out this weekend through injury while there remains doubt over Wan-Biassaka and Casemiro as well.

Predicted Lineup – Onana (GK), Evans, Lindelöf, Maguire, Dalot, Fernandes, Amrabat, McTominay, Rashford, Antony & Højlund 

Man City

Man City also claimed a 2-1 victory in their last league game at home to Brighton. Alvarez opened the scoring as early as the 7th-minute and Haaland made it 2-0 in the 19th-minute. Brighton pulled a goal back in the second half and Man City had defender Akanji sent-off in stoppage-time for two bookable offenses but the hosts held to win the game Bruyne is still out and won't be expected back until the New Year and Akanji is suspended following that sending off against Brighton.

Predicted Lineup – Ederson (GK), Walker, Stones, Dias, Gvardiol, Silva, Rodri, Foden, Haaland, Doku & Álvarez

Player to Watch: Phil Foden

Foden played a massive part in Man City's 6-3 win over Man Utd last season, scoring a hat trick for his beloved club.

With De Bruyne out injured for the majority of the opening half of the season, Foden has had to step up and become even more creative for City. The England international has chipped in with 3-assists in the Premier League this season, only Alvarez can equal that in the City side.

We're expecting a big performance from Foden in a game he seemingly loves to play in and don't be surprised to see Foden either score or set up a goal for the visitors this weekend.
