The English Premier League returns in style as Manchester United host local rivals Manchester City.
The international break had just caused tensions to rise for much longer. Finally over, fans are ready for the first meeting between Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho on English soil.
Manchester United vs Manchester City Preview
Guardiola and Mourinho last met in the 2013 UEFA Super Cup, where Guardiola’s Bayern Munich needed penalites to get by Mourinho’s Chelsea.
Both clubs sit atop the English premier league table. A loss for either side would mean the other falls 3 points behind.
One of the key factors that may decide this match is the absence of Sergio Aguero. The City striker is currently on a suspension, with Kelechi Iheanacho expected to start in his place.
The last time both clubs met saw United prevail at the Etihad thanks to a goal from Marcus Rashford.
Prediction: United’s home advantage and Aguero’s absence might just give the Red Devils the edge. 2-1 to United.
