Solskjaer aiming to end awful derby trend

Stats: The awful Manchester Derby trend Solskjaer is aiming to end

April 24, 2019 By Ali M.
The Red Devils will welcome the reigning Premier League champion to Old Trafford on Wednesday in what should be a thrilling derby.

On Wednesday, Man United and Man City will lock horns in a highly-anticipated Manchester Derby. Old Trafford will host Guardiola's side in a game that could decide the fate of three clubs.

For Liverpool and the Citizens, this tie will have a huge impact on the title race. Lose at the Theatre of Dreams and Man City's odds of defending their title will take a huge blow. Beat their neighbor and Aguero and Co. will be the favorites to lift the league crown.

As for the Red Devils, their Champions League hopes hinge on this tie. Should they lose at home, they will likely miss out on a top-four finish. If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wishes to avoid this, he must put to end an awful trend that has ensued since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

Since the iconic Scottish manager called it quits, every single permanent manager that followed him lost in their very first Manchester Derby. Those men were the infamous David Moyes, the uninspiring Louis Van Gaal, and the unpopular Jose Mourinho, all succumbing to defeats in their first encounter with Man City at the helm of Old Trafford.

In fact, England's most successful club has only beaten their noisy rival three times in the league since Ferguson's retirement. Solskjaer will not want to follow suit but the odds don't favor his team.

Pogba and Co. have lost six of the last eight games that followed that unforgettable Champions League win over PSG. While some Red Devils fans admit they won't be sad if Man City won, given that it would all but end Liverpool's chances of winning the league, their Norwegian tactician will be gunning for a win and will have to beat the odds to do so.
