Manchester City

Currently at the top of the team standings, Manchester City (21-3-3 win-draw-loss, 66 points) are on pace to claim back-to-back English Premier League titles and their fourth in five seasons. They are coming off wins against Peterborough United on March 2 in the FA Cup and Everton on February 27 in the Premier League. The Pep Guardiola-managed XI are looking to sweep the season series against Manchester United and keep second-place Liverpool at bay in the EPL table.

The Sky Blues have been brilliant at both ends of the pitch as they are second in the league in goals scored (64) and are the top defensive team this season with 17 goals allowed. Manchester City’s offensive distribution is spread evenly with five players scoring at least seven goals. Raheem Sterling leads the team in goals scored with 10 while Ederson has been solid between the pipes with 15 clean sheets in 26 starts.

Manchester United

Manchester United (13-8-6 win-draw-loss, 47 points) have played so-so in the past two games at a time they cannot afford to be lackluster. Currently clinging onto a provisional UEFA Champions League berth, the Red Devils settled for draws against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash on February 24 and Watford in the EPL on February 26. Manchester United look to break out of the funk in their second clash against Manchester City and maintain their solid grip of fourth place.

The Red Devils are now on a must-win mode and need to play solidly against the Sky Blues to keep West Ham, Arsenal, Tottenham and Wolverhampton from snaring fourth. Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo remain as the team’s top stars in offense while Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho provide support for the Ralf Rangnick-managed squad.
