Manchester City vs Manchester united 2nd Oct 2022: At the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, Manchester City and Manchester United will square off beginning on October 2, 2022 at 13:00 UTC. The contest is a Premier League match.
Manchester United is currently in fifth place, while Manchester City is in second.
This Sunday, the Manchester Derby will take place when Manchester United travel to the Etihad to take on their venerable rivals Manchester City in the Premier League.
The beginning of the Erik Ten Hag era at Old Trafford has been marked by the Red Devils’ success in each of their last four games. However, they are traveling to face a team that hasn’t dropped a game all season.
With the addition of Erling Haaland, who has helped the Champions score 14 goals in three victories at this venue so far, City have become even more dominant at home. United, on the other hand, have also been playing well lately, winning 2 of their last 3 games. However, in their away games, they have given up four goals, which is more than they have scored. This will definitely be a hit.
The scoring record for Manchester United has been appalling both at home and away, on a neutral field and, of course, against City. Although their recent form favors them playing at Old Trafford, they haven’t scored more than two goals in any of the aforementioned games.
The star player for Manchester City is without a doubt. By the end of this season, Erling Haaland is predicted to smash all previous records, and with 12 goals in just six starts, he already appears to be heading in that direction.
With seven goals, Kevin de Bruyne is only slightly behind, but the legendary Belgian player’s skill is demonstrated by the 3.6 key chances he creates on average per game, out of which City scores at least one goal in every match (incredible!).
The star of Portugal’s international duty schedule, Joao Cancelo, is currently in first place in the charts for interceptions.
In every game, Cancelo intercepts 1.1 crucial passes from the opposition. We’ll be keeping an eye on three City players on Sunday: Haaland, De Bruyne, and Cancelo.
Recent match results
Since the start of this season, United’s goal scoring has been a serious issue. This is directly related to the fact that whenever Ten Haag has played Cristiano Ronaldo, he has either been benched or has performed poorly.
Marcus Rashford now has a total of five goals and assists, which is disappointing because Rashford has performed far below his potential this year.
Another unexpected finding is that despite not starting the majority of Manchester United’s games this season, Anthony Martial still has the best key pass ratio of 2.0.
The same pattern has been seen in the defense, where Harry Maguire leads with an astonishing average of 1.7 interceptions per game despite not starting any games.
With the exception of Cristiano Ronaldo, who can silence the Etihad if he is at his best, this Manchester United team really does not have a standout player to keep an eye on.
