The star midfielder of Manchester United Ander Herrera has claimed that Manchester City are surely going to be the favourites in the Manchester Derby on Sunday. However, the things do not go in a very straight forward way for Manchester City when they face their local rivals. In the previous season also, Manchester United won against City with a margin of 3-2 that delayed the title win of Manchester City.
When Ander Herrera was asked about it in the pre match conference, he told,
“I don’t like to compare situations,”
“It’s a new game, a new situation. Hopefully, we can win.
“It’s true that they are the favourites because they are in unbelievable form, but this is Manchester United and you never know what can happen.”
Manchester United’s start of the season was not very much promising in this season. Though the Red Devils are starting to make a come back after the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. On the other hand, they have won an important match in the Champions League against Juventus on Wednesday with a margin of 2-1. The momentum will be with the Red Devils when they will travel to Etihad on Sunday. However, the way Manchester City are playing in this season, it is going to be a stern test for United.
