We’re expecting a feisty encounter this evening when United clash with City and BetVictor may well end up paying out once again with their Red Card Refund promotion.
The bookmaker refunded thousands of losing bets after Kieran Gibbs was red-carded at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and Victor is running the same offer for the match between the Red Devils and the Citizens this evening.
If a Red Card is shown at any time during the Manchester United v Manchester City match, Victor will refund losing Correct Score, First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Scorecast & Half-Time/Full-Time bets on that particular match as a FREE BET up to £25.
Both teams are desperate for victory, with Manuel Pellegrini insisting that his team need to go and win all of their ten remaining Premier League matches to make sure they can claim the title.
Pellegrini said: “I don’t think we are favourites in any game. We are in a good moment but we are playing against a big team in their own stadium, so I don’t think we are the favourites.
“Of course we always expect to go and win every game but, I repeat, just because Manchester United have had a difficult season it does not mean we are going to win. We have to go there and play a very good game.”
David Moyes has also stated that victory is imperative tonight considering that United were soundly beaten at the Etihad Stadium, although the absence of Robin van Persie and Nemanja Vidic could be a telling one.
“We we want to try and perform better in the bigger games than what we have done,” the United manager said.
“It will be important for us to show the level of what we have got.
“I think we have got the level and we are not as far away as many people would have us and I have no doubt it will improve. We want to show we are still in there fighting.
“We will do everything we can to win. We go out to win every game, not just the derby game.
“Obviously it means a lot more to the supporters and the city if you win a derby game.”
