Man City vs Man Utd head to head, results and statistics. How have the rivals from Manchester fared against each other in recent years?
The Manchester Derby had been a one-sided affair for a large part of the last decade. However, in recent times, City have taken huge strides to become one of the most dominant football sides in the world. They are the current defending champions of every trophy available to first division sides in English football.
Manchester City are chasing a 3rd consecutive Premier League title to become the first team since Manchester United to achieve the feat. United on the other hand, are chasing Champions League berth this season.
Pep Guardiola’s City currently sit at 3rd place with 32 points to their name. United on the other hand find themselves at 6th place with 21 points after beating Tottenham at home on Wednesday night. However, if either or both of Sheffield United and Arsenal win their matches tonight, the Red Devils could slip down to 7th or 8th position.
Despite the huge difference in quality and performance across the last 3 seasons, Manchester City vs Manchester United remains one of the most anticipated affairs in English football, perhaps only behind Manchester United vs Liverpool.
