Manchester City host Manchester United in the Manchester derby this afternoon at the Etihad Stadium with nine points already between leaders City and eighth placed United.
Derby day is known to throw out unexpected surprises though, where the in-form team might be unexpectedly beaten.
One stat that is quite astonishing leading into the latest clash between rivals Manchester City and Manchester United is the fact that in the last six Premier League games between them, the home team has won NONE.
Indeed, you have to go back to April 2015 when United beat City 4-2 for the last home league win for either of the Mancunian giants.
Since then, the sides sport equal records away from home: 2 wins, 1 draw and 0 defeats
Man City fans would argue that City were the better side in the last two games and were victims of smash and grabs, with United (in)famously postponing City’s title celebrations last season with a stunning 3-2 comeback win at the Etihad.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City must therefore overturn a strange series of home results when they host Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United this afternoon.
