Manchester United vs Manchester City lineups, team news
United go into the match on the back of three victories in all competitions, including a 1-0 win over Copenhagen in the Champions League this week. The victory saw Andre Onana save a penalty in added time, which will be a massive boost for the goalkeeper, who has come under a lot of scrutiny this season.
City also won in the Champions League this week, beating BSC Young Boys 3-1 with Erling Haaland scoring twice. However, Pep Guardiola’s side have had mixed results in the Premier League recently, losing back-to-back games against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal before beating Brighton in their last match.
City are currently second in the table, one point behind leaders Tottenham Hotspur, while United are down in eighth place.
Last season’s Manchester derbies in the league saw City win 6-3 at the Etihad Stadium but United did claim a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.
This weekend’s match is sure to be a close and exciting affair, with both teams having something to prove. United will be looking to extend their winning run and close the gap on the top four, while City will be hoping to return to winning ways and cement their place at the top of the table.
Manchester United 1-2 Manchester City
Man Utd XI: Onana; Lindelof, Maguire, Evans, Dalot; Amrabat, McTominay; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund
