The most awaited game of the season will be played this weekend when the league leaders, manchester city host Manchester United. The game will be played on City’s home ground, Etihad Stadium, April 7.

Both the Manchester clubs played very well this season which earned them more points than the rest of the 18 teams. Man City has been at the head of the pack since the start of the year and will be the winners of the season if they beat United this weekend.

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.

Neither of the clubs would like to lose the game. So much will be at stake, but paramount is the pride of Manchester.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho will have much more pressure to win the game as Manchester City’s boss, Pep Guardiola outsmarted his tactics in the last game and took all three points last December. The third spot team, Liverpool would be able to claim the second spot if United doesn’t beat the league leaders this weekend.

What to expect

Last December, when both teams came face-to-face for the first time and played most of the game neck and neck, but the game ended up a disappointment for United as they lost the game 1-2.

Man Utd didn’t play bad, but City’s attacking strength earned them some luck in the game.

This time, City will be vulnerable, more or less, as their main striker, Sergio Aguero has been sidelined with a knee injury.

City also lost their last game in the Champions League knockout stage against Liverpool. Man City will have to look out for fatigue problems against United as they’ll play the second leg of the Champions League knockout stage against Liverpool.

The game will be watched all over the world as this will be one of the more important games of the season, for both teams.

It’s nearly impossible now for any team to hunt down Man City, but still, Pep will do whatever he can to win the game.

Lineup Predictions

United manager, Jose is unlikely to make any changes in the playing-11 who were victorious against Swansea last weekend. Paul Pogba has also made his comeback after a minor injury and is fit to play this weekend.

De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof, Young, Pogba, Matic, Juan Mata, Lingard, Sanchez, Lukaku

Man City manager, Pep Guardiola is most likely to make changes in the playing-11 who were defeated 3-0 in the Champions League against Liverpool. Pep has pressure on his shoulders more than ever as Manchester City has the second leg to play after United, so Pep has to make some changes to avoid injury to his main players in this weekend’s game.

Ederson, Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, delph, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, B. Silva, Gundogan, Sane, Jesus.
