But first and foremost it is a match the main contenders for the title and, of course, one of the most important derby in the English Premier League. And Manchester United and Manchester City have in their ranks a lot of star players, but not all will be able to enter the field in the reporting match. In particular, citizens have to do without their best sniper Sergio Aguero. And it’s a chance for Manchester United extend their unbeaten winning streak, and even under the leadership of Jose Mourinho, who led the club last summer. Who was United favorite pair, and the probability of winning is estimated index of 2.25 against 3.30 for the victory of Manchester City and the draw 3.25.
Manchester United has not lost any of the last three derbies in the Premier League, having won twice and once played a draw. Moreover, in the last season the Red Devils for the two matches against the townspeople did not miss a single goal. And now, for the first time since 1995. United against City can spend three consecutive match without conceding a goal.
Despite the fact that both teams can boast the presence of a large number of players with the highest level of performance, the high performance of the derby wait hardly worth it, and many experts are betting that the game is not more than two goals will be scored – the likelihood of such an outcome is evaluated indicator 1.75. By the way, only one of the five previous matches between Manchester United and Manchester City in the Premier League and scored the hosts and guests. And last season, only one goal was scored in two matches.
Manchester United started the championship with victories over Southampton, Bournemouth and Hull City. In addition, the asset of this team already have one trophy – Super Cup in England was beaten Leicester, and therefore the start of performance of the team under the leadership of Jose Mourinho can be considered successful. We should also note that for the three matches of the championship of England Manchester United conceded just one goal and had twice left the own goal intact. And it is a fact in favor of the fact that in the upcoming derby at least one team will have no goals scored, which often happened in recent seasons. And much more likely to remain without a head of the guests, given how well able to defend Mourinho team.
There are arguments against the home team. For example, Manchester United lost three of five previous games against Manchester City in the Premier League at Old Trafford, winning only once. For comparison, in 29 derbies home before that the Red Devils have lost only twice (+ 15 = 12). Not in favor of United and what their mentor from 16 matches against Pep Guardiola has won only three (= 6-7), so that he will be meeting with is not the most convenient to their opponent. However, of the 11 previous games against Guardiola Mourinho lost only two, so that in any case, can expect a positive result.
Who can become a hero of the meeting? Maybe Wayne Rooney, who played poorly for England, but still very good in the matches for the club. He scored 11 games in official Derby – more than anyone else, not only as part of United, but also as part of the City. And now, the likelihood that he will once again hit the target, estimated index of 3.25. More chances to excel in Zlatan Ibrahimovic – experts estimate the probability of its index of 2.50 goals. The Swede, who moved to Old Trafford this summer from Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 41 goals in 34 matches last championships of France and England, and has already started to score in the Premier League. Do not forget about the author of the winning goal in the gates of Hull City Marcus Rashforde whose chances of hitting the target is estimated indicator 3.50.
For fans of Manchester City is now the main issue is how painful would be the loss of Sergio Aguero. He started the season great, but the match against United had to make a disqualification and exacerbate all the trauma. Since March 2014 no football townspeople but Aguero, has scored in United gates. This season, Manchester City spent three match and beat them in Stoke, Sunderland and West Ham. In these duels Citizens scored nine goals and conceded only one goal. With such statistics, game on the defensive – and City and United, surprisingly, the likelihood that both teams will score in their full-time match, rated so high – an indicator of 1.80. As mentioned above, this happened only once in the last five derbies. Moreover, only one of the five previous matches between the teams Guardiola and Mourinho sacrificed both players.

Then the townspeople led by Manuel Pellegrini, who beat David Moyes. Do not departing from the subject of managers, should be said that Guardiola, Mourinho has the advantage over personal meetings, I was the first mentor City, who managed to win the starting five official matches. But Mourinho had to be noted at Old Trafford – before it to anyone headed United failed to win the first four official matches.
Manchester City have to solve the problem of lack of Sergio Aguero, but in the last round in a match against West Ham with the best hand proved to Raheem Sterling, who managed to score two goals. Perhaps it was from him will come the main threat to the goal of Manchester United, and experts estimate that today the chances of this player to score at least one goal index of 5.00. Also may differ Keles Ikeanacho (3.25) and Nolito (3.60).
Guardiola’s team in 16 matches against teams Mourinho scored 28 goals or an average of 1.75 goals per game. But the Portuguese expert team in these meetings, scored only one goal in the middle. At the same time only once Guardiola and Mourinho played with each other in a draw 0: 0 – 2009.
