Can David Moyes’ men halt City’s title charge?
Read more Manchester United transfer news.
With United desperate to halt their rivals title charge, here’s how we think David Moyes’s side will line up today against their bitter rivals…
GK) David de Gea
One of the first names on the team sheet, de Gea has been one of United’s better players this season. He kept a clean sheet at the weekend, and will be keen to do so again.
Rafael enjoys storming up and down the right flank, but with David Silva floating around City’s final third, he’ll have to make sure he doesn’t let the mercurial Spaniard play clever through-balls inside him.
DC) Rio Ferdinand
Michael Carrick had to play at centre-half against West Ham, but Ferdinand should be available to return to the side this evening, despite carrying a slight knock.
DC) Phil Jones
With Vidic suspended, and Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling likely to miss out through injury, Jones should partner Ferdinand, knowing he’ll have to cover for the veteran’s lack of pace.
DL) Patrice Evra
Evra was rested against West Ham, but we’re almost certain he’ll come back into the side today, at the expense of Alex Buttner.
