Manchester United vs City: Confirmed teams

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United starting XI vs City: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Fellaini, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Rooney, Lingard, Ibrahimovic

Today’s Manchester derby is one of the biggest between the clubs and has all the makings of a classic encounter.

Mourinho, Guardiola, Ibrahimovic, Pogba, De Bruyne, Silva, Bailly, Stones – both teams are littered with talented players and it’s going to be one hell of a match-up.

Which way will it go? I hope to god it goes to the red side of Manchester but even without Sergio Aguero this City side is a real threat under Guardiola.

Back in 2009 we had the 4-3 win over City in what was one of the best ever derby encounters, will today live up to expectations or will the nerves get the better of the occasion? We’ll find out soon enough.
