It’s derby day in Manchester! What might have been a glorified friendly given the rescheduling and underachieving of both sides in the league this season has suddenly become a crunch clash, with Manchester United just a solitary point behind Manchester City leading into tonight’s game.
The result tonight could help determine who finishes in the Champions League spots come the end of the season, although given Liverpool’s slip-up at weekend, there is now a greater opportunity for both sides to finish in the top four.
Martin Atkinson is tonight’s referee and here are the teams selected by Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho:
Manchester City XI: Bravo, Zabaleta, Kompany, Otamendi, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Yaya Toure, Sterling, De Bruyne, Sane, Aguero
Manchester United XI: De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Blind, Darmian, Herrera, Carrick, Fellaini, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Martial
