The Manchester Derby is back for another year. This season will bring about several changes at both Manchester clubs. Man City has access to Erling Haaland, a new star forward, while United will have Erik ten Hag as their new manager. However, the fierce rivalry between the two teams, which has grown more ferocious in recent years as a result of City’s success, is one thing that will remain the same. After a disappointing campaign, Manchester United will be anxious to demonstrate that they can compete with Man City once again.
United had great success and dominated the Premier League for a considerable period. After being acquired by the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008, City has persevered in subsequent campaigns, nevertheless. Since the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, United has struggled to be consistent.
