Man City vs Man United: Manchester derby line-ups, team news, predicted XI

Man City welcome Man United to the Etihad Stadium this weekend in another rendition of the storied rivalry between the two sides – we preview the clash with team news and predicted line-ups.

Despite being in excellent form and aiming for the top place, Pep Guardiola’s team has only won one of their last four home matches versus United in all competitions. United has triumphed in the other three contests, winning each of them under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Aiming to match Solskjaer’s best winning streak by taking three points away from home, Erik ten Hag’s team is also in excellent form, having won four straight Premier League games.

Team news

Despite sitting out United’s two Europa League matches, Marcus Rashford is still anticipated to make a full recovery from the injury he incurred against Arsenal in time for Sunday’s derby.

The state of Anthony Martial’s health is debatable. The Frenchman has played just once this year, a standout cameo of 45 minutes against Liverpool last month.

After playing the full 90 minutes in last week’s 4-1 loss to Serbia for Sweden, defender Victor Lindelof should be welcomed back into the matchday lineup.

Predicted line-ups

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva; Mahrez, Haaland, FodenManchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia; McTominay, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Sancho; Rashford
