Man United v Man City Match Preview

Live coverage on Sky Sports at 7:45pm, Wednesday 6th January 2021


  • Man City are unbeaten in their last eleven games
  • Man United are unbeaten in their last seven games
  • Three of the last four between these sides have involved under 2.5 goals


Both Manchester United and Manchester City have been banging in the goals in recent weeks, however we envisage this EFL Cup semi-final clash at Old Trafford being altogether more cagey. All-but-two of Man United’s last seven outings at this venue have returned less than three goals while just one of the previous four meetings between these arch-rivals has ended with more than two goals.

On their travels, Manchester City have been involved in many low scoring affairs with under 2.5 goals being scored in all-but-one of their last seven away from the Etihad Stadium and given that there is plenty at stake tonight, we expect this to be the case this evening at Old Trafford.

Both United and City have been enjoying some outstanding form of late and Pep Guardiola’s men are favourites to win this match with most bookmakers going odds-on, however United have lifted themselves considerably in recent weeks and now sit level on points with Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table. With that in mind, we’ll be siding with tonight’s hosts to do the business and steer themselves into the final of the League Cup with a low-scoring win in ninety minutes.
