Manchester City managed to seal their place in the Quarter Finals of the Champions League without much fuss but their form in the Premier League has been especially worrying and the Citizens have made things very difficult for themselves following the 0-0 draw against Norwich City last time out.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini is adamant that his side are still in the title race and while he may be true, the Citizens now cannot afford to make any mistakes whatsoever from now till the end of the season.

Up next for City is a clash against sworn enemy Manchester United and anything other than a victory on the day will be construed as a failure by the fans.

Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi are both doubts for the clash while the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Fabian Delph and Samir Nasri remain ruled out.

Manchester United’s season took another turn for the worse after making a meek surrender at the hands of Liverpool in the Round of 16 of the Europa League on Thursday night and now the Red Devils need to go on a good run of form in the Premier League in order to stand any chance of participating in the Champions League next season.

Their hopes could potentially be dashed as early as this weekend as United square off against rivals City at the Etihad Stadium and claiming a victory on the day will be a tough ask for Louis van Gaal’s uninspired looking side.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Donald Love, Wayne Rooney, Will Keane and Ashley Young are the injury concerns ahead of the clash for United.

Manchester City vs Manchester United Match Prediction

While both teams are not in the best of runs at the moment, City will probably head into the clash with the tag as favourites.

United are really struggling to show any fluency in their game and although the derby should be a good motivator to get back on track, City simply look too strong.
