Predicted Starting XI: Manchester United v Manchester City

Manchester United meet Manchester City for the first time this season tomorrow, with Louis van Gaal hoping to secure a vital three points that could lift us up above our neighbours in the Premier League table.

Team selection is a pivotal factor for the game, and after a tricky trip to Russia the gaffer could be tempted to change things up slightly, and bring in some fresher faces.

Matteo Darmian and Juan Mata are almost certain to feature from the off, as is Daley Blind who also missed the game on Wednesday.

Derby day has come slightly too soon for Ashley Young who has just returned from injury, with Paddy McNair also sitting this one out with an ongoing problem. Luke Shaw obviously won’t feature either.

Starting XI

De Gea; Darmian, Smalling, Jones, Blind; Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Herrera, Martial; Rooney.
