PICTURE: Potential Man Utd 4-3-3 vs City – Defender returns

The second Manchester derby of the season is upon us, and Manchester United will be out for revenge after suffering a 1-0 defeat last time out. The tables have turned somewhat since then, as this weekend United leapfrogged their rivals in the table.

Louis van Gaal seems to have got things working at Old Trafford at the moment, with United coming into this one on the back of five consecutive wins – including against the likes of Spurs and Liverpool.

The team shouldn’t change much, especially the front three of Wayne Rooney, Ashley Young and Juan Mata, who have been in imperious form.

Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini are a midfield trip who have improved greatly of late, with the perfect blend of physicality, intelligence and passing.

The defensive setup includes Daley Blind at left-back, Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling as centre-halves and Antonio Valencia at right fullback.
