United could be a major obstacle for City in their fourth season title win in the fifth season. Guardiola’s side, who are just three points ahead of Liverpool, has no chance of losing. However, the statistics of the 50th derby of the league are scary for City. Because the current league champions are always helpless in front of the Red Devils at home.
United have had their last laugh in 11 of the 21 derbies in Etihad since 2003. Cristiano Ronaldo’s team is also ahead to face the league. 24 wins in 49 matches are one of the most successful clubs in EPL history, on the other hand, 18 wins for City. However, in the last match, Guardiola’s team lost to United 2-0.
With Liverpool and Chelsea at number two and three at the table on Saturday, the match has become a battle of survival for Manchester City. Because losing points here will bring Liverpool closer to them. As a result, Pep Guardiola does not want to give any concessions to Manchester United.
