Robin van Persie will experience his first Manchester derby at the Etihad tomorrow and he could well be the difference between being behind on goal difference or being six points clear at the summit, heres to hoping it’s the latter. United head into the game with a few injury problems, especially in midfield, but we have plenty of goals in our side.
It’s definitely too close to call tomorrow and it really could go either way, we’ve struggled defensively whereas City have struggled scoring goals, I think we’ll come away with something, however our back line will have to be on top of their game.
Come on United!
Jordan’s predicted XI:
De Gea; Smalling, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra; Carrick, Fletcher, Scholes; Young, Rooney, RvP
Ben’s predicted XI to come shortly!
Leave your predicted XI in the comment box below.
Fletcher & Scholes shouldn’t be anywhere near the reserves let alone the starting 11, in the biggest game of the season so far. If one if them starts we wil loose if both start it could be embarrassing.
I completely agree, however we have no other options.
Re-agreed, could see Rooney in the middle?

You’re probably right about Smalling on the right in place of Rafael for his ability in the air. I can see Rooney spending the majority of the game occupying the midfield area,if not I fear we will be over run in midfield.
I think Fergie will play him as a forward, but he’ll drop back an awful lot to help out the midfield as you say.
