Former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy, has predicted that Manchester United have no chance of beating Manchester City when both teams clash in a Premier League rival tie on 14 January at Old Trafford.
Man United had lost 6-3 against Man City in the reverse fixture earlier this season at Etihad Stadium.
However, Murphy, who noted that Man United are dangerous, believes Pep Guardiola’s side are better than the Red Devils.
“[Manchester United are] not going to beat Man City. Let’s get that straight. They have got no chance,” Murphy told talkSPORT.
“They [Manchester United] are dangerous. He [Erik ten Hag] has got rid of the Cristiano Ronaldo situation and there is a lot to be positive about [his team].
“But, ultimately, if you are comparing them to Man City, and even Arsenal at the moment, there are not many Man Utd players getting anywhere near the Man City side.”
He added, “Let’s be honest. Man City are the yardstick. The [6-3] game earlier this season showed the problems Man Utd will have when they play top opposition.”
