Man Utd v Man City

Postby Conner99 » Mon Mar 24, 2014 12:56 am

Man Utd had a comfortable 2-0 win at West Ham ....Rooney with both goals , and although they are no longer fighting for the title the current Premier League champions can have a say on who will take over their crown come the end of the season ..the local Manchester derby will be one that Rooney is looking forward two ..he said "It's an exciting game and hopefully we'll get the result."



Man City had little trouble beating Fulham at the Etihad ....a 5-0 win including a hatrick from Yaya Toure kept them right on the heels of leaders Chelsea , and with 3 games in hand it will be crucial to keep the pressure on the Blues , a win against Man Utd would put them within 3 pts of Chelsea ...it is going to be an interesting match.

The unpredictability and fractious nature that makes a local derby ensures
only a fool would gift any of his hard earned when predicting the outcome
of a game that can swing precariously to an onslaught for either side ,or
peter out into a disappointing stalemate.

That said, since I left ,the 'village' is thriving under a new idiot ,so I've got
a pony on United winning 3-2 :wink:

Will be hiding behind the sofa while this one is on. City are fresh from mauling Fulham and United hardly needed to be on top form to dispose of West Ham. I can only see a City win here.

Man City have won their last 2 visits to Old Trafford in the league and i quite fancy them to make it a 3 wins in a row.

Man Utd 0-2 Man City

You have to fear it may be 'tin hats' time for Man Utd fans yet again, as the Noisy Neighbours come to visit. However, there are some crumbs of comfort for the red (or red and canary yellow) half of Manchester after a win against Olympiakas and West Ham. They have injuries to some key players and a makeshift defence, despite this they have a couple of wins under their belt, and I'm sure Rooney will be right up for this one.

Ominously for United, City are unbeaten in their last eight away matches and have won six of them. They will be very keen to maintain their title challenge and will love to put Man United to the sword while doing so. Aguero is out, and his contribution to City should not be underestimated, but that is about the only bit of good news for Man United fans.

I really can't picture Moyes standing there with a big grin on his face at the end of this one, having outwitted Pelligrini. Hard to see where he is going to out gun Man City. Man Utd 1 Man City 3.

Much of the same whenever Utd meet a top side, they get beat. Genuinely don't see them getting anything here and the best they can hope for is losing by the odd goal.

What a start!

City are 1-0 ahead after just 1 minute!

FT

Man Utd 0-3 Man City
0-1 Dzeko 1'
0-2 Dzeko 56'
0-3 Yaya Toure 90'

Man Utd have now lost 10 PL games in one season for the first time.

Any comments on City's derby win?

I thought David Silva was brilliant for Man City at start and Man Utd just didn't know how to deal with him!

Didn't see the game, but caught the commentary. Predictably, Man United short in every area of the park, no answers to the Man City onslaught.

A season to forget for Man United, they need to seriously clear out the dead wood and bring in new blood in the summer.

Man City still on course for the title. Arsenal at the weekend? Another hatful of goals and three points on the cards!
