Manchester City vs Manchester United Predictions
Score: Manchester City 3 Manchester United 1
Knowing Manchester City hasn’t lost a Premier League game since late November, it’s hard to make a case for the visitor to capture three points here but United has proven to play tough against their rivals recently.
While City’s 21-game winning streak is ridiculous, the club from Old Trafford hasn’t lost a game in its last 10 of all competitions.
However, United hasn’t scored a goal in three consecutive games -- all of them ending in scoreless draws. In 14 road league games, United hasn’t dropped points but it almost has as many draws (6) as victories (8).
I believe United will get on the board but ultimately, City’s time of possession and ability to create opportunities will be the difference between these squads on Sunday.
Both clubs will get on the board but the Citizens will do more damage in the final derby of the season.
