Oxford Utd – Man City Match Prediction | 18-12-2019 14:45

They may not have created too many chances but eventually when they tried to chase the game it caught them out. Ricky Holmes tried his luck from 30 yards but missed by a fair distance, a long Long throw on 74 caused chaos and forced a corner and then U's went for broke on 77 minutes by throwing on Sam Smith and going with two up front.

The former Liverpool youngster challenges Jamie Hanson, Josh Ruffels and Shandon Baptiste for a place in midfield but Manager Karl Robinson has hinted that there could be a few changes to the side as he looks to give players the experience of playing against the Champions in front of a full house. The U's welcome back Cameron Brannagan after he was rested for the game against Walsall on Saturday following a clash of heads at Wycombe in the previous game.

Unusually, United now had a dilemma. Mahrez peppered the car park with a couple of speculative efforts; the fans locked out and sitting atop a Transit van behind the fence seemingly more in danger than Mitchell in United's goal and they were dislodged on 68 minutes when Jesus fired straight at them! Losing at home but knowing that if they opened up and took the game to the visiting team they would leave themselves exposed and get picked off.

Goals from Gabriel Jesus and late efforts from Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden divided the teams in front of a full house on a memorable night at Grenoble Road but the U's showed admirable team spirit and were given an ovation by their fans at the end. Oxford United were beaten but should be very proud of their efforts after they pushed one of the best sides in the world all the way this evening.

Oxford Utd VS Man City Prediction & Betting Tips

Mitchell pushed away another Mahrez drive on 71 and United had defended stoutly. Long was relishing the challenge on his return from injury, exemplifying the spirit and effort that the whole team were putting in. Cameron Brannagan's return lasted 55 minutes before he was taken off as a precaution; City's abundance of riches demonstrated perfectly when they brought on Raheem Sterling at the same stage.

They avoided being defeated in just two occasions and with five points on their account, Karl Robinsons side is two points away from the nearest safe spot. Home side is not enjoying their start in the League One this season as they are positioned in the relegation zone after being able to book only one victory in nine rounds.

Brahim Diaz got in behind the defence, had his shot blocked and Jesus nodded home at the back post to make it 1-0. A VIncent Kompany header was cleared by Curtis Nelson after half an hour and Mahrez curled an effort over on 34 minutes; just looking at those names gives you an idea of the task that United faced. The visitors began to make ominous noises though. Mitchell made a good save from Oleksandr Zinchenko. United had done well but on 36 minutes the resistance was broken. David Silva swivelled and fired wide moments later.

City, in a purple and orange kit, did get the ball beyond Jonathan Mitchell with an offside effort after 18 minutes but it was United getting the cheers for a prolonged period of possession when they (temporarily at least) outpassed City. The Us were far from overawed though, with Shandon Baptiste wearing the captains armband with pride and Sam Long and Rob Dickie extremely solid on their returns to the starting line up.
