Manchester derby dissected: How United can delay's City's title celebrations

06 Avril 2018

Historically, the Reds have a strong record against our near neighbours heading into the 176th Manchester derby - winning 72 and drawing 52 of the previous 175 encounters.

"I don't watch them a lot because I watch Manchester City a lot - because they are great to watch". The Old Trafford club went unbeaten on their way to winning both the FA Cup and the Champions League, though they did draw an incredible six of 11 matches in Europe's premier club competition.

But why, you may be asking, does he never leave second gear?

It is, though, a chance for United and Mourinho to strike a psychological blow for next season, even if he only succeeds in delaying City's coronation. Wherever he went he won. Last weekend, United claimed a 2-0 home win over Swansea City.

At the same time, Man United will also be under pressure not to lose the second position on the table if they drop points in the game. [Marcus] Rashford wants to come in and is very good at it. Bale would just be another player who wants to be a centre-forward. Can United show that they can compete with City? "Continuing the freeze in match and season tickets for next season is driven by our belief in supporting fans attending our games", Manchester United's Group Managing Director Richard Arnold said. City could realize a dream scenario, and clinch the title at home in front of the side that they hate most of all. The cerebral Scot scored again to equalise and Gary Pallister, who'd had a awful game in the 5-1, nearly snatched a late victor.

Real Madrid could attempt to take striker Alvaro Morata back to Spain this summer following the 25-year-old's move to Chelsea last summer for £60m. "There is no way they would have visualised being 3-0 down after the first leg tonight", Keane said. It took them minutes to get back in to the game. Once again, they'd started singing too soon.

"Jesse Lingard has to play, he can provide that energy and enthusiasm". As far as I'm concerned it's been like watching Barcelona in the Premier League.

He told BetStars: "I don't know if Pogba will stay".

City certainly need one, given how disappointing they were at Anfield. The Portuguese coach has suggested, on more than one occasion, that the French midfielder must carry out more defensive duties and become more reliable, rather than just adding to the team's fortunes in attack. As things have panned out, City really need to stamp their authority, play the usual style with the usual players in the usual set-up and let the opposition do the worrying. It's all imported at a premium. Having their players and fans rub it in our faces would be pretty sickening.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United will return to the United States for a pre-season tour, the Premier League giants announced. When teams struggle to beat Manchester City once, Jurgen Klopp's men did it twice this campaign.

City have already suffered five defeats this season, which is one more than Manchester United suffered in all of 1998/99.
