Match Preview:Manchester United vs City

September 19, 2009


ahh finaly the derby weekend is here! I have been waiting for this day ever since the premeir league started. City big spenders in the league splashing out more than 100 mill. While United have only spent about 20 mill and still are the better team! Mark Hughes and Fergie has been getting to each other, Mark Hughes need to learn a lesson and probably will! City are still a small team.

Going into this game, United are favorites to win, but for Manchester City with the suspensions and Injuries they will be happy with a draw maybe a win even if Ireland & Tevez make it in time.

Speaking about Tevez Fergie Treated him like a small player like he is! Here’s what he said

“It doesn’t bother me one bit [if Tevez plays],” the United manager said. “Their best player is not playing. Adebayor has been their star player, no question about that.

“He has scored in every game and that is a loss really.”

So all the fans will be wanting to know if Tevez play as all the boo’s and anti-tevez song’s will be waiting.

Man City

City are in good form winning all their games, mostly scrapping 1-0 victories. But the win against Arsenal was really eye catching, wasn’t it? Though I still think they will go on another 6 years before they win a silver ware, they are a real big threat now! Honestly I do think they will end up in the top 4 this season, They might even finish 2nd according to some pundits or maybe even grab the league(HAHA).

City will be missing Robinho & Adebayor due to Injury and suspension. A lot of sources saying Tevez might actually start in this game- rumors say He begged Hughes to start this game.

City’s star man might as well be Gareth Barry. Their midfield line is very strong! With De Jong showing excellence in the Arsenal game, him and Barry might start this game. Ireland is racing against time to be fit, so we’ll wait and see.


United are currently flying high in the scoring department. Rooney and Berbatov are just in form and no one can stop them and its very positive to see that we are scoring goals from midfielders too. I would also want to praise our wing powers, NANI and VALENCIA are showing what the future would look like for UNITED. United’s only slow start of the season is basically the center of midfield and also the backline.

Ferdinand is the only doubt going into Sunday. United should play a 4-4-2 going into this game, with rooney and Berbatov opening the strike force. Giggs was rested in the Champions league game so you can say he might start. There will be a lot of fresh faces going into this game. Darren Fletcher our big game 1st midfield choice player should also start this game, he has been playing Excellent. So you can maybe expect Ryan Giggs  and Fletcher in the middle of the park. With Nani & Valencia on the wings.

The main question going into this game will be, who will start in United’s backline? Vidic now fit to play is obvious to get the a place, Evra will also have his place in left back. so the Right back and Center Back position along with Vidic is the real question. Without Rio Ferdinand’s confirmation we can’t confirm you. Though I still think Rio will start. If he does not, its not really a problem! Evans has been amazing, playing really good- has a real bright future. Wes Brown in right back.

Our projected line up:



Manchester United 3 – 0 Manchester City

Scorers: Rooney, berbatov & Fletcher
