CONFIRMED LINE-UP: Manchester City vs Manchester United – No Van Persie

by Sam Peoples

De Gea, Evra, Ferdinand, Rooney, Smalling, Vidic, Carrick, Young, Welbeck, Valencia, Fellaini

Subs: Amos, Buttner, Evans, Cleverley, Kagawa, Nani, Chicharito

Robin van Persie will not feature at all today after reportedly picking up an injury in training. It is a big blow to Manchester United given how important he is but Danny Welbeck will step right into the spot and he has been in fantastic form this season.

Elsewhere, it is as expected. Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young start on the wings whilst Wayne Rooney will lead the line. He is the man of the moment right now. Come on Rooney.
