Recent respective form guides

Manchester City's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Sky Blues have conceded a disappointing 4 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 1 of their own chances.

Man. City sit in a healthy 2nd in the league, and have picked up 6 points from their 2 games. Man. Utd. see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 2 points from their 2 games played so far,
