Let’s try this again. One year after the much-hyped first ever overseas Manchester derby was cancelled in China due to heavy rain, City and United will meet for real today at the NRG Stadium in Houston.
United are already well into their pre-season having beaten LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake, but for City it all begins now with their first of three International Champions Cup games on American soil.
Here are the starting line-ups selected by Pep and Jose, including first appearances in blue for Ederson and Kyle Walker. Expect many changes during the game!
Manchester United XI: De Gea, Valencia, Lindelöf, Smalling, Blind, Herrera, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Lingard, Rashford, Lukaku
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Adarabioyo, Kompany, Fernandinho, Yaya Touré, Walker, Foden, De Bruyne, Sterling, Aguero, Roberts
