Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Manchester United
Manchester continues to grow game after game and is already in fourth place with 35 points. In addition, they just beat Everton 3-1 without problems to advance to the fourth round of the FA Cup where they will face Reading.
The ‘Red Devils’ already have 7 consecutive victories and have recovered a great Marcus Rashford, who after the World Cup has scored 1 goal in each of the games (5), in addition to giving 2 assists. He is undoubtedly a key player for Erik ten Hag, as well as Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro, who are also figures in every match.
No doubt this will be a completely different game from the last one, where they were crushed 6-3. The coach has already been able to inject another mentality into the team that if they win this weekend, they will be in the fight for the title.
Everton’s goal this Friday, after a huge mistake by David De Gea, is the first the team has conceded in its last 5 games, something that speaks highly of the defense. In addition, they scored 12 in that same number of matches.
At home, they have 8 consecutive victories in all competitions and an undefeated 10-game. In total there are 11 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses this season at Old Trafford.
Why Bet on Manchester City
Finally, Manchester City was able to discount Arsenal in the fight for the Premier League and now they are 5 points behind after their 0-1 victory against Chelsea and the goalless draw for the ‘Gunners’ versus Newcastle.
In addition, the Citizens played again against the Blues this Sunday and crushed them 4-0 for the FA Cup. Now in the round of 16, they will face precisely Arsenal in a great series.
This last victory against Chelsea was a great relief for Pep Guardiola, who after the World Cup had not seen a good level among his players, since in most of the games they had not been seen to be comfortable and winning easily as they have us accustomed, something that did happen this weekend and they even had the luxury of leaving Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan and Ederson on the bench.
City is the highest-scoring team (45) and Erling Haaland already has 4 goals in 4 games after the World Cup.
They have 3 consecutive wins playing away.
