Manchester Derby Schedule: City vs United in Premier League 2023/2024

Man City's victory over Luton Town with a score of 2-6, admitted coach Pep Guardiola has increased his team's confidence. Especially the appearance of Erling Haaland who returned sharply, after the presence of Kevin De Bruyne in midfield.

However, Guardiola insists that the match against Manchester United will be different and definitely more difficult. These two teams will certainly try to do their best in a derby match that has great prestige at stake.

"Facing Manchester United will be very different, because they defend differently, and have experienced players. We will prepare well for the derby match," Pep Guardiola said.

On the other hand, the quality of Manchester United's game was fairly unconvincing until the last match against Nottingham Forest. Although MU won 0-1, they had enough trouble creating opportunities. Plus some key players including Rasmus Hojlund, Lisandro Martinez, and Luke Shaw, are still doubtful.

Coach Erik ten Hag realises that in terms of quality, the Manchester City camp is more complete than his team. However, MU still has the chance to score a surprise in the Premier League 2023/24 this week, and it is not impossible that they can win.

"Manchester City have a good team, but there are many better teams. Last season they became champions, and now is a challenge for us to beat him. I have spoken to the players, and we are looking forward to this match," said Erik ten Hag.
