Defeat Manchester United on his field – now the task is not simple. At the “Old Trafford” “Red Devils” do not lose in 40 matches in a row. And this season was just a continuation of this series. Largely thanks to a powerful game at home Mourinho’s wards and are now in second place in the championship standings, behind the future opponent by eight points. To reduce the gap from the competitor is just a real chance. Since the start of the current season, “United” has played in all tournaments in the home arena 11 games, and won in all. The last one took place this week within the Champions League. MU took CSKA and won a strong-willed victory with a score of 2: 1, showing once again good results.
“Manchester City” in this season has shown the best start in the history of the Premier League. In 15 rounds, the “townspeople” scored 43 points, stumbling only once. At the start of the championship, in the second round, Guardiola’s wards concluded a home match with Everton 1: 1, after which they did not lose points for 13 matches in a row.
