The second leg of the Manchester derby kicks off this coming Thursday at 8 pm at the Etihad stadium with both sides fighting for a place in the top four , which will in turn guarantee a spot in next year ‘s European champions league. What a showdown it gonna be for these two sides of Manchester . In the event that City wins the derby United’s top four hopes maybe in jeopardy , on the other hand if United wins then City and Liverpool will be under increased pressure. Of late Liverpool lost to Crystal palace and remained on 66 points having played 2 more games than the other teams in top 5. A win for City means Liverpool will drop to 4th, whereas a win for United will see them maintaining their position courtesy of goal difference.
United have shown great quality of late, which saw them inflicting a painful defeat to log leaders Chelsea last weekend and thus that win coupled with their recent win over Burnley will be a moral booster for them going into this derby. On the other side City seemed not to be in good shape considering their current form, it looks like they have dipped in form a little bit.
What are your predictions for this upcoming derby.
