United vs City - Manchester derby of ideologies


Manchester United accepted Manchester City at 18:30 at Old Trafford in an attempt to tie the championship title to Premier League. The Red Devils are lagging at 8 points by the leaders who are in a historic series of 13 consecutive wins in the league.
Naturally, fans are excited about the fight and the clash between Jose Mourinho and Josep Guardiola, which has become a modern football classic. In 19 games between them, the Spaniard has eight wins against just 4 for the Portuguese and 7 draws. In the past campaign City won 2:1 on Old Trafford and Etihad both teams did not score, but now the hell can not afford similar results to stay in the fight for the most valuable trophy in the country.

Derby will also be an ideological duel of two styles, confided by managers who will once again want to prove that their way is the right one for achieving high goals. Mourinho is lagging behind Guardiola, but there are two trophies at United -The League Cup and the Europa League, while Pep has just built a team to taste, not only in England but also in the Champions League.

In all tournaments, the red devils have a 72:50 win and a draw of 52. If they now win, they will catch Arsenal`s 2002 record for 14 consecutive wins in the league. United, however, have 40 non-defeating households, of which they have won 29, which is a club-level record and a new one can be placed against the city`s rival.
Mourinho can not count on injured Eric Baiy and Michael Carrick, as well as punishable Paul Pogba, as Marwan Felaini will also be questioned until last. Benjamin Mendi and John Stones are out of order for Guardiola.

United (3-5-2):David de Hea;Marcos Rocco, Chris Smiling, Phil Jones;Ashley Young, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia, Jesse Linggard;Marcus Rashford, Romulus Lukaku
