by Sid Choudhary

David De Gea – Certain to start and will be looking to keep up his record in big games

Matteo Darmian – Rested in the Champions League, will be needed to keep tabs on Raheem Sterling

Chris Smalling – One of the first names on the teamsheet with his performances recently

Phil Jones – Back to full fitness, will look to build on his Everton display

Daley Blind – Came on for Marcos Rojo in Moscow and will want to win his place in the side back

Bastian Schweinsteiger – Will be needed to dictate the tempo in his first Manchester derby

Morgan Schneiderlin – Provides the energy needed in such a big game to get a grip of the middle of the park

Juan Mata – Well rested after Moscow, will be looking to return with a bang

Wayne Rooney – Already has a good record in derbies and is desperate for a goal and some form

Memphis Depay – Wants to get back in the team after some poor performances and prove his worth against City

Anthony Martial – A certain starter after his fantastic header in Moscow

Formation: 4-2-3-1 – Louis van Gaal‘s system of choice
