Manchester United vs City: Predicted XI and formation

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea Starting to see De Gea in the nominations for PFA Player of the Year. Deservedly so.

Antonio Valencia Has moulded himself into an effective, if uninspiring, right-back ahead of Rafael.

Marcos Rojo Chris Smalling is a doubt for the game so Louis van Gaal is unlikely to risk him.

Phil Jones Has been the consistent member of the back four through United’s recent good run.

Daley Blind Sorry Luke Shaw but you’ll have to get ahead of Blind if you want to get ahead of Blind who has been superb.

Michael Carrick – Has come to the fore again since returning from injury.

Marouane Fellaini The big Belgian is now all of a sudden one of the first names on the team sheet. Who’d have predicted that a few months ago?

Ander Herrera – In contrast, everybody knew how important Herrera could be if given the opportunity and he has proved that with his recent performances.

Juan Mata Is bang in form right now. Scored the winner against Liverpool, can he do it against City too?

Ashley Young Another player re-born this season much like Smalling and Fellaini.

Wayne Rooney Loves scoring against City and will be brimming with confidence after his superb goal last weekend against Villa.
