Manchester City take on their rival Manchester United at Etihad Stadium on the Premier League matchday 31.
The main problem of the Citizens this season is consistency as Pellegrini’s side tend to show different level of football in every game. Manchester City are 4th in the league with 51 points earned. They have recorded 15 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses with 52:31 goal difference. We should mention their current form is deserved to be better. The Citizens managed to win 1 game, tied another and lose 2 ones. However, we should also mention the fact they won League Cup beating Liverpool in the final and proceeded to the Champions League quarterfinals.

It turned out Louis van Gaal is very pressure-resistant. Everybody has been slamming the Dutch manager of Manchester United for the past six months. But he keeps being the manager, while the team keep falling down. They have already been eliminated from the Champions League and Europa League. They have been showing football of just horrible level in the EPL and in the national cup. It seems nobody, not even players, understands van Gaal’s philosophy. Man United are 6th in the league with 47 points earned and it seems they may fall lower. They are likely to miss out the Champions League next season. As to away games the Red Devils recorded 5 games and lost 6 ones.
Manchester City have won 3 of their last 5 encounters with their rivals. Man United won only once. We should recall their first game this season ended in goalless draw. What is most important Manchester City have their two starting centre-backs injured after the Champions League game and Manchester United can get the best use of this in the game.
Prediction: Manchester United to win.
