How Man United will line up to take on Manchester City this weekend.
Last week’s encounter against Chelsea was huge, but it is this weekend’s clash with their cross-city rivals that will be a real test of how they’re progressing under Louis Van Gaal. Where Chelsea are running away with the title, the is something about City that suggests United can indeed catch them up. They will need to be at their best to do so, and here is how we think they’ll line up.
GK: David de Gea
The Spaniard has been in good form so far this term, but will need to be at his best when coming up against the likes of Sergio Aguero.
LB: Luke Shaw
Shaw has been given a huge let off as it looks as though David Silva will be ruled out of the game through injury.
CB: Chris Smalling
The England star will come in for his international colleague, Phil Jones, and will look to get up to speed quickly.
CB: Marcos Rojo
Still set to appear through the middle due to the ongoing shortage of centre-backs.
Rafael acquitted himself well against the Blues last week, but can he keep it up again this time around?
