Manchester United welcome Manchester City to Old Trafford for a crucial Manchester Derby at Old Trafford this evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rung the chances with Matteo Darmian making a rare start in defence for the first time under the Norwegian coach. Darmian appears to be playing in a back three/five along with Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young – although United could easily be playing with a back four and Young further forward.
Andreas Pereira also gets a recall for Man Utd as he joins Paul Pogba and Fred in midfield while Jesse Lingard supports Marcus Rashford in attack. Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata are among the substitutes.
Man City line-up with Oleksandr Zinchenko at left-back while Vincent Kompany marshalls the back four along with Aymeric Laporte and Kyle Walker. Ilkay Gundogan joins Fernandinho and David Silva in midfield.
