Manchester United Vs Manchester City Premier League Football Score Match 14 January 2023

Manchester United will entertain arch-rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford in the 189th edition of the Manchester Derby on Saturday. The hosts are on a four-game winning streak in the Premier League which has seen them climb to fourth place in the league table. In their previous outing, they overcame Bournemouth 3-0 at home thanks to goals from Casemiro, Luke Shaw, and Marcus Rashford. Manchester City are unbeaten in their last three league outings and returned to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Chelsea last Friday. The two teams endured contrasting fortunes in the EFL Cup as the hosts recorded a 3-0 win over Charlton Athletic and City fell to a shock 2-0 defeat to Southampton as they made an early exit from the competition.

This will be a crucial game in the title race and the top four race, thus both teams will be looking to put on a solid display. The Red Devils have kept clean sheets in their last five Premier League games at home but have conceded 12 goals in their last three meetings against the visitors. They have suffered just one defeat in all competitions since October and are likely to produce a strong display. The Citizens fell to a shock 2-0 defeat against the Saints in the EFL Cup and will be gunning to bounce back to winning ways. They have dominated proceedings against the hosts recently and have picked up four wins in their last five meetings.

While the hosts head into this game in better form, City have been able to produce strong performances in the derby. With that in mind, we expect the two teams to play out a high-scoring draw. Football pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts Manchester City will secure a comfortable 2-0 victory over city-rivals Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday (January 14). Manchester City go into the game after suffering a shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of Southampton in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup. Manchester United, on the other hand, secured a safe passage to the semifinals of the cup following their 3-0 victory over Charlton.It is the Manchester Derby this weekend with United hosting City at Old Trafford on Saturday in the early kickoff. Erik ten Hag’s side have won all six of their games since the restart while Pep Guardiola’s men have won four, drawn one and lost to Southampton which eliminated them from the League Cup. United have been able to close the gap to four points after City dropped league points in their home draw with Everton and now the Red Devils could move to within one point of their bitter rivals.

However, United have lost more home Premier League matches to City than any other opponents with eight defeats while the Citizens have 18 victories overall in league play. Another three-point haul would complete a sixth Manchester derby double for City which would be a new record. Also, United have shipped 12 goals in their past three encounters with City which included the six back in October at Etihad Stadium — as many as they had conceded combined in their previous 12 clashes.

United: Diogo Dalot could be fit to play after being withdrawn in the first half against Charlton Athletic but Donny van de Beek and Axel Tuanzebe are out injured. Jadon Sancho remains unavailable but Ten Hag does have Bruno Fernandes back so should be able to add him to Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in the middle. Marcus Rashford is on a six-game hot streak and should start with Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw. Harry Maguire, Alejandro Garnacho, and Tyrell Malacia should drop to the bench. Wout Weghorst could join United on Friday so it might be a question of whether he can be registered in time for the game with Anthony Martial still expected to lead the attack.

City: Ruben Dias remains out with a hamstring problem while John Stones was unable to start against Saints and will miss out again here. Kyle Walker could go back to right back while Nathan Ake will hope to start, as will Joao Cancelo. Kevin de Bruyne and Rodri should be restored to the midfield at the expense of Cole Palmer and Kalvin Phillips while Erling Haaland will lead the attack and seek to add to his 21-goal tally. The in-form Riyad Mahrez could start after being rested midweek with Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, or Julian Alvarez completing the attack.
