Manchester United solid at Home
United’s season has been blighted by inconsistency, though the Red Devils have been consistent at home, losing none of their last 13 matches in all competitions; eight of which they’ve won. Such form should mean Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men come into this fixture feeling upbeat.
The fact Tuesday’s hosts recently beat their city rivals away from home will also provide a confidence boost. Just one month ago, United returned from the Etihad with all three points thanks to a 2-1 win. On that occasion, they were bettered in terms of possession and shots, but were very threatening on the break and were the better team in terms of quality and clearcut opportunities.
United’s scoring form at home also bodes well against a City outfit anything but defensively sound away from home. The hosts have notched two or more goals in seven of their last eight at Old Trafford.
Manchester City in Form
Their recent loss against United doesn’t exactly bode well, but Guardiola’s men have since steadied themselves and are once again a team in form. Manchester City come into this fixture having won each of their last three, scoring eight goals and conceding two in the process.
However, the current title holders have had the luxury of playing three home games on the bounce. When they were last involved on the road, the Citizens slumped to defeat at Molineux, losing by three goals to two against a useful Wolves side.
Playing away from home has caused Manchester City a few problems in recent times, especially in the league, where they’ve failed to win three of their last five, two of which they’ve lost. Scoring goals is rarely a problem for Tuesday’s visitors, but keeping teams out has often proved beyond them. City have conceded in four of their last five travelling Premier League matches, shipping two or more in three of those.
Home goals on the cards
In the betting, ‘Manchester United to Score Over 1.5 Goals’ stands out as a viable option. Not only did United score twice in the recent renewal of this fixture, but their general attacking play on that occasion was very encouraging. The hosts have also scored two or more goals in seven of their last eight at Old Trafford.
Add in Man City’s recent travelling defensive exploits – conceding two or more in three of their last five away games in the Premier League – and backing the hosts to notch multiple goals starts to look very appealing at current prices.
Those braving the ‘Correct Score’ market can try a 2-2 draw. Quite frankly, both teams are fancied to get going offensively. United have scored multiple goals on a regular basis at home, netting exactly twice in two of their last four, though they’re without a clean sheet during that time. City have had defensive problems on the road but have bagged regular goals, scoring exactly twice in two of their last four.
