Manchester United vs Manchester City Preview, Latest H2H Record and Betting Tips: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 11
The Manchester derby is the obvious attraction this weekend as the two rivals go head-to-head in the most awaited game this season so far. And Alley Sport brings you the Manchester United vs Manchester City Preview, Prediction, and H2H record from this gameweek 11 encounter in the 2021/22 Premier League season.
Manchester United vs Manchester City Preview
Man United and Man City have seen a power shift like no other in recent times. The Citizens, ever since their takeover in 2008, have become a footballing empire. Manchester United, meanwhile, have suffered a gradual downfall since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013. Perhaps the 5-5 game against West Bromwich Albion, Ferguson’s last game in charge, was a sign of the era to come.
After a superb summer transfer window this time where Man United signed three superstars, the club got off to a good start where they looked like title challengers. A hopeless October shot down those hopes and a 5-0 loss vs Liverpool was perhaps the crowning of Solskjaer’s worst spell as United boss. But a 3-0 win against Spurs last weekend is now offering renewed hope to some fans.
Man City, on the other hand, poorly lost to Crystal Palace this weekend even though VAR and a red card played a part in that, but their lack of dominance that we have gotten used to in recent past is vanishing, and quickly. They now have a derby that can send their season two ways. A loss will be a big, big dent to the fans’ confidence and their title charge, while a win could spur them onto a long winning streak.

Manchester United vs Manchester City Betting Tips
Betting sites around the country, including OddsChecker, a website that compiles Odds data from the top betting sites in the United Kingdom, place Man City as favourites to get a win at Old Trafford at 14/19, while United stand at 39/10, with a draw at 31/10, which is surprising to see and something to avoid.
Ferran Torres of City is placed as the most likely first goal-scorer by the same website at 9/2, even ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo, who lies at 6/1 . 1-1 at full-time is the most likely scoreline as per the 8/1 odds, followed closely by a 2-1 Manchester City win. The safest money here would, in our opinion, be on a draw and with both teams to score.
