Why you should back Manchester City
The Cityzens are set to face an ailing Manchester United side on Saturday. Antony, the Red Devils' 23-year-old winger from Brazil, was taken off by stretcher in the club's match against Chelsea on May 25 with an ankle injury and is unlikely to play, according to manager Erik ten Hag. United already are without forward Anthony Martial, who is out with a torn hamstring suffered in the final game of the Premier League season, as well as midfielders Marcel Sabitzer, Donny van de Beek and defender Lisandro Martinez.
In addition, Manchester City have arguably the best goal scorer in the world in Erling Haaland. The 22-year-old striker from Norway has been involved in 44 goals this season (36 goals and eight assists) in the Premier League. That is tied with Thierry Henry for the most goal involvements ever in a 38-match EPL season. See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils have the confidence of knowing that they beat City the last time these sides met. On Jan. 14, United rallied from a one-goal deficit to earn a 2-1 victory over the Cityzens at Old Trafford. The Red Devils got goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford in the win.
In addition, Rashford is having a career-best season. The 25-year-old homegrown product has scored 30 goals across all competitions this season, which is eight more than his previous best. For his efforts this season, he earned the team's historic Sir Matt Busby Award and was voted as the Players' Player of the Year by his teammates. See which team to pick here.
