Predicted XI: Manchester City vs Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

David de Gea If we win, it’ll probably be because De Gea had a blinder in goal.

Matteo Darmian Varela will be dropped by van Gaal due to his defensive error against Liverpool.

Chris Smalling Back to the ground where his transformation began with a red card.

Daley Blind – Want to rest him but do I trust Marcos Rojo against Man City? No.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson Think it’ll be a big boost to have him back.

Morgan Schneiderlin – I’m going to keep banging the Schneiderlin drum until van Gaal reads our predicted XI and puts him in.

Bastian Schweinsteiger Ander Herrera probably won’t be risked and Schweinsteiger will play 60 mins.

Juan Mata Undecided on Mata but he’s capable of magic.

Jesse Lingard He played pretty well against Liverpool, at least showed some commitment.

Anthony Martial – Come on Tony, sink the blues.

Marcus Rashford One of our best players on Thursday and as much as I want to see him rested and taken out of the team at some stage, that can’t happen away to Man City.
