Looking at the Premier League table, you may not think that the side going into the Manchester derby full of confidence was the one languishing in eighth place – and the ones who missed out on midweek action once again because they could not get past MK Dons.
However, it is United and not City who are the most confident side in Manchester at the minute with the Red Devils securing a draw against league leaders Chelsea, whilst Manchester City failed to beat West Ham United the previous league outing and were humiliatingly not to mention comprehensively booted out the Capital One Cup by a struggling Newcastle United side.
City may still be title contenders – even favourites in the eyes of some, but even their most ardent of supporters would admit that it is not all going to plan at the minute.
Louis van Gaal and Manchester United will have noticed City’s momentary slump and will be looking to capitalise on it, and with that in mind we have come up with five issues City currently face and that United will be looking to use against them come Sunday.
