Premier League football returns as Manchester City take on rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side we think Pep Guardiola will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Claudio Bravo is expected to be handed his debut after joining the club from Barcelona before the international break.
Defence: Nicolas Otamendi will be given a late fitness test as he’ll return late from international duty but he’s expected to line-up alongside John Stones at the back with Vincent Kompany still out through injury.
Pablo Zabaleta could get the nod ahead of Bacary Sagna at right-back while Alexandre Kolarov could come in for Gael Clichy on the left side of defence.
Midfield: Fernandinho is certain to keep his place in the middle of the park on Saturday while David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne will continue in central positions in a very attack-minded midfield three.
Attack: Raheem Sterling has found some form under Guardiola and scored twice during the 3-1 win over West Ham before the international break so he should keep his place in attack along with summer signing Nolito – who will keep his place ahead of the likes of Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas.
The big problem for Guardiola is that Sergio Aguero misses the game through suspension after being hit by an FA misconduct charge so youngster Kelechi Iheanacho could start up front.
Here is how I think we’ll see City line-up:
