It is the big one this weekend, the one that every Manchester United fans looks at on the calendar when the fixtures come out. Manchester United vs Manchester City at Old Trafford.
This season is even bigger with Jose Mourinho vs Pep Guardiola and their personal rivalry off the pitch, adding to the occasion. Manchester United are going into the match slight favourites with home advantage and good form, odds more in United’s favour since Sergio Aguero will miss the match due to suspension.
Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic is more than excited for Saturday’s kick-off against City, stating that the big games matter. Speaking with manutd.com he said:
“For me, the big games are the ones that trigger you.
“They’re the games everyone speaks about.
“I have played in many derby games, I’ve played in the El Clasico, the Inter/Milan derby, Ajax and Feyenoord which was the big one there [in Holland] and PSG/Marseille.
“I have played in all of them, the only one I missed was this one. This is coming on Saturday and I am very well prepared, confident and focused, and there is a lot of hard work behind that. We are prepared and we are ready. We just wait for the game now.”
