Roy Keane & Gary Neville predict result for Man City vs Man Utd

Manchester United icons Roy Keane and Gary Neville have shared their forecast for the Red Devils’ upcoming Premier League clash against Manchester City this Sunday.

Following victories in the FA Cup fifth round midweek, with United securing a narrow 1-0 win against Nottingham Forest and City triumphing 6-2 over Luton Town, both teams are gearing up for the derby encounter.

Notably, Erling Haaland’s remarkable five-goal performance highlighted City’s dominant display.

City are enjoying a strong position in the Premier League, trailing leaders Liverpool by just one point (60) after 26 matches. On the other hand, Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United find themselves eight points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa (52).

On The Overlap (according to TBR), Keane said: “3-1. Let’s go 3-1 City” before telling Neville: “Don’t be copying us now!”

“I was going to say 3-1,” the former right-back said. “It’s probably about right. I’d like to have United with a goal, to be fair… just something! I’ve not predicted United will lose on this yet.”

It’s worth mentioning that Manchester City secured a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford in October, with Haaland scoring twice and Phil Foden adding another goal.

Given Pep Guardiola’s team has emerged victorious in five of their last six Manchester derbies, they’re likely feeling optimistic about the prospect of achieving a league double over their esteemed local rivals.

Manchester United’s current season has been less than impressive, marked by 15 defeats across various competitions, including 10 in the league alone.

Their recent encounters with Manchester City further highlight their struggles. Under Erik ten Hag’s management, United have suffered three consecutive losses at the Etihad Stadium, with their last victory there dating back to March 2021, a 2-0 triumph in the league.
