The Manchester Derby is here, one of the biggest rivalries in English football played in the football capital of Britain.
The game will be watched just about everywhere in the world, games like this are always filled with huge expectations and rarely fail to deliver.
As far as Manchester United are concerned, who go into the game without a win in a Manchester Derby in their last 4 attempts, it’s a better time than ever to break the streak and race further ahead of City, much to the misery of the blue half of Manchester.
The United Line-Up has a number of potentially vital decisions for Louis van Gaal to ponder, should club record signing Angel di Maria start? Should in-form Falcao play a part?
The Manchester United XI I have predicted is an unchanged side from the team who beat Aston Villa last week.
Valencia – Jones – Rojo – Blind
Carrick – Herrera
Mata – Fellaini – Young
I believe Di Maria will start from the bench, but I can’t see him staying there for 90 minutes. His impact when coming off the bench in the last 2 games has seen him produce 2 assists almost instantly. In fact, the man labeled as ‘out of form’ has the second highest number of assists in the league.
Should United line-up this way, fans will know what to expect. However, Manchester City are almost certainly going to turn up this afternoon and give it their all.
Come on United!
