Competition: EFL Cup
Market: Man Utd to win against Man City
Odds: 8/5 @ Bet 365
Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola lock horns in the Manchester derby once again as Manchester United play host to fierce rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford in tonight’s EFL Cup last-16 clash. The Sky Blues beat the Red Devils in their last meeting, but United could well respond this time round.
Both sides are enduring poor runs of form. Manchester United have won just once in their last six league games, while City have gone five games without a win in all competitions. For United, however, they are coming off the back of a 4-0 thrashing by Chelsea so they are under more pressure to deliver a credible performance.
And Mourinho’s side should deliver given their home form has remain consistent despite results being less than satisfactory of late. United have won three and drawn one of their last four home games in all competitions, while their opponents have suffered defeat in their last two away outings.
Both sides are sure to make changes to the first-team to allow fringe players game time, and it’s likely to see City more vulnerable given their high-risk style of play, compared to a functional United side who will gamble less in possession. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 8/5 for United to win against City to reach the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.
