It was another impressive week for the English clubs in the Europe, Manchester United aside, but the Premier League will take centre stage again this weekend.
The derby represents the perfect opportunity to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s inconsistent side to bounce back, but Manchester City have been much more like their old selves in recent week.
As ever, Betfair Ambassador Dimitar Berbatov previews the action for Metro.co.uk…
Manchester United vs Manchester City
Oh my god! Coming from the last match, if United play anything like they did in the first half when they take on City, I don’t see anything good coming for them in this one.
If they correct themselves and they don’t let two goals in and wake up to start playing, they should be fine.
Solskjaer has an impressive record recently and he’s had the better of Pep. In this one though, coming off the back of the result midweek, I think it will be difficult. Prediction: 1-2.
Everton vs Chelsea
This is an interesting one, Ancellotti coming up against his former club. Chelsea are playing good football, they do have a weak side however.
DCL is scoring goals for Everton and as a striker when you’re in good form you want the next game to come as soon as possible because you feel powerfull, in shape, prepared and you have the feeling that you can score a goal from anywhere on the pitch.
I think he can cause problems for Lampard’s side, so they will have to do a job to keep him quiet. Prediction: 1-1.
