“Will win 3-0”- Bacary Sagna gives blunt Manchester United vs Man City prediction

Club News: Bacary Sagna gives his prediction in favour of Manchester City over Manchester United

Former Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has given his prediction in favour of Manchester City over Manchester United ahead of the derby game this Sunday.

Speaking to Lord Ping as quoted in the Mirror, the former French right-back believes the Red Devils will trouble the Cityzens very much.

“No. I can’t see United causing City too many problems at all. I can’t see anyone other than City winning this match. I think City will win 3-0.”

While the former player and now pundit has the right to give his opinion, we are inclined to disagree with his assessment.

City have gotten off to a good start this season and remain unbeaten in the league so far. They sit second in the table with 17 points and will look to extend that run against their neighbours.

United, meanwhile, have won four league games on the trot including victories against Liverpool and Arsenal. But the game against City is always different, no matter the competition and Erik ten Hag will know that despite taking over the helm just this summer.

Erling Haaland has been in good form for the Cityzens having scored 11 goals in seven league games this season. He will likely be a nuisance for our defence but Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane should be ready for that challenge.

Marcus Rashford, who is likely to start ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo will also hope to continue his good form. The forward has three goals in six league games and he along with Jadon Sancho and Antony will look to trouble the City defence tomorrow.

Both teams have very good sets of players with phenomenal managers at the helm. While everyone will have their own predictions, we believe it will be a very close game. Fans will hope that it is United that comes out on top.

Man City did the league double over us last season. Two wins against perhaps the best team in England is wishful thinking but we would hope that we at least avoid defeat both times against them under Ten Hag.
