Live ticker Manchester City – Manchester United (Premier League 2023/2024, 27th matchday)



United coach ten Hag’s tactics are working so far. City has full control of the game, but they also repeatedly run into dangerous switching attacks from United. Rashford in particular is always lurking on the halfway line for the next long ball.



Another United counterattack! Bruno Fernandes carries the ball to the left and crosses the ball with a lot of feeling into the five-yard box. Directly in front of Ederson, McTominey misses, then Rashford stumbles. There was more in it for the Red Devils!



After a few dangerous attacks on both sides, City briefly secured the ball and patiently rebuilt in front of the United penalty area with lots of passes.



Now it goes back and forth! Just seconds later, City runs forward again and combines nimbly through the United defense. Foden serves De Bruyne with a dream pass and sends the Belgian on his way down the right side. However, Onana plays along attentively and throws herself in a timely and decisive manner.


4:50 p.m

Lucky for Guardiola! Rúben Dias slides away in his own half, allowing Rashford to counterattack in the free City half. The United goalgetter wants to break through, but has problems taking the ball with him and misses a huge opportunity.



…sniff the 1:1 equalizer! Bernardo Silva shields the ball with a wonderful ball movement in the penalty area and also serves Foden next to him. The Englishman then shoots from six meters and fails due to a foot save from Onana.



Foden’s second attempt does not result in a goal threat either. However, the sky blues remain stormy now and…


4:45 p.m

Can Haaland and Co. answer? After conceding a goal, City returned to the opposition half for the first time and won two corners in a row on the right side. Number one from Foden is quickly cleared by Lindelöf. What about the second attempt?



This means that United is making the first statement in the city derby, which was not announced at all. The Red Devils’ first offensive ball contact ends with a board like this. Crazy beginning phase!



Great for Manchester United, 0-1 by Marcus Rashford

A long stroke. A Rashford. A dream goal! Rashford volleys the ball in front of the left corner of the penalty area after a pass from Bruno Fernandes and slams the ball under the crossbar with an unstoppable hammer and into the goal! Ederson has no chance.



United can barely get out of their own half in the early stages and are already extremely deep in front of their own goal. How long will this last against the dominant Citizens?



City power play! De Bruyne picks up the ball in the left corner of the box and dribbles his way almost in front of Onana. Stones then falls to the ground, whereupon the Skyblues fans demand a penalty. However, no foul can be seen in the replay.


4:35 p.m

City immediately puts pressure on! After an initial push from Foden, the Skyblues got their first corner. De Bruyne takes the corner, but can’t cause any danger with his cross.



The Manchester derby is on! Referee Andy Madley blows his whistle and City kicks off. The choice of jersey today is traditional according to the occasion: City in light blue, United in red.


City is in top form just in time for the city derby: In the league, Guardiola’s team won seven wins from the last eight games and only lost points against Chelsea (1:1). In the FA Cup round of 16 against Luton, Haaland and Co. had no problems and overwhelmed the promoted team with a clear 6-2 away win.


Recently, the Red Devils’ form curve has shown a slight upward trend again. United celebrated four league wins in a row in February, but then lost 2-1 at home to Fulham. In the FA Cup, United moved into the quarter-finals with a 1-0 win against Nottingham during the week.


This season too, the Red Devils are falling far short of their expectations and have had a disappointing season so far. United are only sixth in the table and even have to worry about qualifying for the Champions League. If United miss this, it will also be difficult for coach Erik ten Hag.

3:59 p.m

United fans used to mock ManCity as “noisy neighbors” and didn’t really take them seriously. Those times are long gone. City has now been ahead of the Red Devils for years and is constantly celebrating new title wins under coach Pep Guardiola, while United simply cannot find stability, especially in the coaching position. United’s last championship was eleven years ago – back in the last season under legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson.


It’s derby time in Manchester today: ManCity welcomes ManUnited for the big city duel and wants to gain important points on league leaders Liverpool with a win against their favorite neighbors. The Skyblues are clear favorites: City won four of the last five city duels and gave United no chance in the first leg with a clear 3-0 win.


Hello and welcome to the Premier League and the city derby between Manchester City and Manchester United! Blue or red – which color will win the city championship?
