New Season, New Derby In Manchester

On the fourth round of Premier League this season, the two Manchester-based football team is clashing again.

We know that a derby is an important thing for fans and that winning it is needed for a successful club, especially when clubs have the same points. However, the result can’t be the same every single time, cause some things can influence how the opponents play.

José Mourinho who’s the new head coach of Manchester United said every player is available to play today. Meanwhile, one of Manchester City‘s key players Sergio Agüero is banned for three games.

According to Mourinho, Man United will have to play harder, as the absence of Agüero makes it harder to know City’s formation in advance. Maybe Raheem Sterling, David Silva or Kelechi Iheanacho could be in the starting eleven, in any case, they’ve certainly got many great potentials.

Man City manager Pep Guardiola stated at the press conference he’s seen the Reds’ matches this season, and that he can tell they perform better at every turn – just like his club.

The derby takes place at Old Trafford, and especially, this time, we are eagerly looking forward to seeing what the afternoon holds.
