Premier League 2023-24 Man City vs Man United: Date, Time Head to Head, Prediction & Where To Watch. One of the most highly anticipated events in the world of football is set to unfold on Sunday, 8.30 pm IST at Old Trafford. Manchester United will play host to Manchester City in the latest chapter of the infamous Manchester derby.
Manchester United’s performance in the Premier League has not been great. They have suffered four defeats, resulting in a current standing of eighth place in the table with 15 points from nine matches played.
In the 2023-24 season, Manchester City is positioned in second place, trailing the league leaders Tottenham Hotspur by a mere two points. However, Pep Guardiola’s squad has already encountered two setbacks in the form of away defeats to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal.
The triumphant team, having secured a treble, will enter this matchup with the momentum of a 3-1 victory against Young Boys in the Champions League. Meanwhile, Manchester United also secured a win against Copenhagen in the same competition, bolstering their chances of progressing to the knockout rounds.
Erik ten Hag’s team has impressively triumphed in their previous three matches across all competitions, with their latest two wins coming in the league. A win for the Red Devils on Sunday would bring them within a three-point reach of their rivals.
As the Manchester derby approaches, Sports Ganga takes a retrospective look at the head-to-head record between the two teams.
Head To Head Records: Man City vs Man United Stats 2023
Total Matches: 190
Man United wins: 78
Man City wins: 59
Not surprisingly, Manchester United holds the upper hand in the historical head-to-head record against Manchester City. The Red Devils have secured 78 victories compared to Man City’s 59, with 53 draws completing the historical statistics.
In the Premier League, Manchester United’s track record against Manchester City stands at 52 matches played, with 25 wins, 18 losses, and nine draws. Guardiola’s side still has ground to cover to surpass their rivals in terms of Premier League victories in Manchester derbies, although they have made significant strides in recent years.
The most recent encounter between the two teams occurred in the FA Cup final at the beginning of June. In that match, Manchester City emerged as 2-1 victors, preventing Manchester United from securing a domestic cup double last season.
Last season, Manchester City bested Manchester United 6-3 in a Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium, making Erik Ten Hag’s inaugural experience of a Manchester derby undoubtedly challenging.
Can Manchester United Turn the Tide Against Manchester City? – Premier League 2023-24 Prediction
When it comes to predicting the result, it’s evident that Manchester City winning is the most probable scenario. Manchester United’s recent performance, whether at home or away, has been lackluster, and they’ve relied on luck to secure victories in their last three matches. Unless there’s a substantial improvement, there’s little doubt that Manchester City can’t seize the opportunity to address their recent struggles on the road and secure a win against their arch-rivals.
