MUN vs MCI Dream11 Team Prediction Tips For Manchester United vs Manchester City Premier League Live Score 6 November


MUN vs MCI Dream11: One of the biggest games of the calendar will go underway as the Manchester Derby takes place at Old Trafford. Neither can afford to slip up any more in the title race. United tinkered their formation to good effect and beat Spurs 3-0 in the last game which saw Nuno Espirito Santos sacked. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under heavy pressure himself and would be looking to avoid defeat at all costs.

The Citizens are coming into this game at the back of a shock 2-0 loss at home to Crystal Palace. Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher were on the scoresheet for the Eagles. Cristiano Ronaldo was City bound in the summer until United swooped in at the last minute. Can he be the difference maker today?

Likely Winner:

  • Manchester City is aiming for their eighth Premier League victory away from Manchester United, which would be the most by any team. At Old Trafford, they’ve won six of their past 10 Premier League games (D2, L2).
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won four of Pep Guardiola’s eight encounters, the greatest record of any manager who has faced the Catalan at least five times.
  • In all competitions, Raheem Sterling has made a career-high 23 appearances versus Manchester United. Despite playing 1,662 minutes and trying 38 attempts against the Red Devils, the England international has never scored.
  • Only Jamie Vardy has scored more goals against Pep Guardiola’s sides than Cristiano Ronaldo, who has eight in 16 matches (9).
  • We are going for a scored draw in this fixture.

Manchester United: 11/8
Manchester City: 9/4
