Manchester City Vs Manchester United Football Match Score 2 oct 2022
Manchester City is going head to head with Manchester United starting on 2 Oct 2022 at 13:00 UTC at Etihad Stadium stadium, Manchester city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League. Manchester City welcome local rivals Manchester United to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. Pep Guardiola has overseen 170 home matches since arriving in east Manchester six years ago. The Catalan’s City side has lost just 17 of these meetings, with their Manchester rivals United responsible for more away victories than any other club (four). The 188th meeting between the rivals kicks off Super Sunday this weekend, with hosts Manchester City unbeaten in 19 Premier League games – dating back to a 3-2 home defeat against Tottenham in February.
Meanwhile, Manchester United’s current run of four successive league wins is their longest since April 2021 – a five-game winning streak that included a 2-0 win at the Etihad. The fact both teams are in good form should come as no surprise – only Chelsea’s summer spending exceeded the outlay at Old Trafford and, in Erling Haaland, City have a whose current rate would see him end the season with 59 Premier League goals. The bragging rights held by the blue half of Manchester since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement over nine years ago is well documented. Despite winning only three major trophies to City’s 12 in that period, as well as finishing an average of 17 points behind their local rivals, United have spent more money on new signings than the reigning champions. While a top-four finish is the likely aim for Erik Ten Hag in his inaugural season in England, a fourth win in six league visits to the Etihad would go a long way to cementing United’s radical improvement after a calamitous opening couple of weeks to the current campaign.
Pep Guardiola’s team have scored three or more goals in each of their recent seven home wins, the first time they have done so in their top-division history, and are only the second team to do so in the Premier League era – after United between December 2009 and March 2010. The Citizens have scored 14 goals in their opening three Premier League home games, the joint-most by any team in the competition’s history – along with themselves in 2019/20, United in 2011/12 and Arsenal in 2009/10 – but none of those teams proceeded to lift the Premier League trophy in those seasons. If that is seen as a slightly negative omen for City, a positive one for Sunday’s visitors is that a win would see them make an identical start to their last title-winning season in 2012/13 (five wins and two defeats from their opening seven games).
After sobering defeats against Brighton and Brentford left Ten Hag’s team bottom of the table after their first two fixtures, their subsequent four-game winning run has seen a notable change in approach. While having less of the ball, the Dutchman’s side are being more direct when in possession, attempting more tackles and covering significantly more distance.
