If only about Derby Manchester in a recent decade, this is probably the first time after 4 years Man City and MU meet while one of the two teams (or both) are not in the competition group champion. The last time was in the turn on the season of 2015/16 when both were far from the lead group and after the seasons, both teams replaced the head coach.
MU and Man City are outside the top 4 after 10 matches
However, in a season where many unpredictable things happened as the good start of Everton, Aston Villa or Leicester City, it would not be surprised if the two teams into Manchester returned to the championship race in a short time. Both are outside the top 5 at this moment but there is no match without winning, they may be only 2-3 points inferior.
The question is whether both MU and Man City have appeared in the championship race in this season, or at least doing it when the Derby match returns the season in early March next year . Or if there is a falling team, it will be someone.
Man City has started the slow season with the only bright spot as the progress of defense. However, they had a series of 5 matches without losing since defeat 0-2 before Tottenham, including 4 victories and 1 Plan of Porto 0-0 in the context of City that held the ticket to continue in the Champions League .
Man City is holding a clean net with 5 matches, the longest match from the beginning of the season
Man City's goods have scored 11 goals in those four winning matches and the revival of work at the same time with the return of the plug striker. Gabriel Jesus kicked the main stone from the draw of Liverpool and recently Sergio Aguero was re-exported after a period of injury to score in just 23 minutes into the 3-0 victory to the Marseille.
Aguero was elderly but still a leading striker Man City could rely on, so he had a trauma since the beginning of the season, causing the power of "The Citizens" to be reduced. Pep Guardiola had to "patch" by bringing Ferran Torres or Raheem sterling stone plug, but they play unlike Jesus & Aguero and finishes not with two South American strikers.
Jesus reality did not record a table since the Liverpool draw and there are concerns that the performance of the Brazilian player will last. But on the other hand, his support with teammates showed how a real striker had a positive influence on how to play, and if Jesus became an Olivier Giroud World Cup version 2018, PEP and students His will be satisfied with that.
Jesus and Aguero will have a great influence on Man City championships
Man City's defense row this season has a great progress and they have a series of 5 consecutive cleans in all tournaments. 10 deferred games on a total of 18 matches fought in every arena, with the Monday Most Premier League with the Premier League beside Chelsea (11 goals) showed that the former champions are gradually going from the basics in the next route. Just the public goods don't hurt too much that they can race the championship.
Solskjaer "live through the day"
There is something wrong being happening with this season. After a more optimistic 2019/20 in the 3rd destination and won the Champions League tickets, they were now excluded from the tournament even though they were at the top of the table. What OLE Gunnar Solskjaer is most afraid of that failure will spread to the Premier League.
MU's performance in the Premier League will be affected after thriving from the Champions League?
MU's performance in the Premier League is what many big teams will have to desire. Since buying Bruno Fernandes, MU is only poor every Liverpool about the number of points to win. Furthermore after 10 matches, MU had 19 points and 19 goals, while the last season after 10 matches they have 13 points and 13 goals.
But in the group of 7 teams leading the bxh, MU scored less than the second (only after Man City, but City punctured less) but the most conceded to Liverpool and Southampton, the two teams have more desks than MU. The team's gameplay is only bright when Bruno Fernandes has in the yard, relying on an individual is a manifestation of major problems in the operation of the group.
Fan MU can indicate that their team has good results when meeting large teams under Solskjaer, but every match is once Solskjaer edits the lineup to worry about dealing with the enemy's strength) Set the gameplay. Since the beginning of the season has not yet been able to play with a battle with the starting lineup with the previous match, even if their injuries since the beginning of the season with Tottenham are at least in teams "Big Six".
Solskjaer constantly changes the starting lineup of MU from the beginning of the season
Solskjaer's temporary training will make MU sometimes flashed with victories in front of large teams, but not enough to bring a stable form throughout the season. MU may win Man City this weekend, but I will not surpass the competition Top 4 if you continue to "live through the day" like that.
