THE TEAM NEWS

MAN CITY

  • Man City got back to winning ways in style on Tuesday night as they picked up a 4-1 win at Burnley after an impressive performance.
  • Gabriel Jesus was in top form scoring two goals and he could easily have had a hat-trick as he deputises for the injured Sergio Aguero.
  • Gundogan is back from suspension and returns to the squad but Guardiola may be reluctant to make too many changes after that display.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy; David Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Aguero (Injured)

Doubtful: Zinchenko (Injured)

MAN UTD

  • Man Utd beat Spurs in midweek on Jose Mourinho's return to Old Trafford as they produced one of their best performances of the season.
  • Rashford scored both goals in the impressive 2-1 win and the striker has now scored 12 goals in his last 13 matches for club and country.
  • Martial missed the game with a knock and he is rated doubtful so he faces a fitness test along with Pogba, Rojo and Matic who may return.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; McTominay, Fred; James, Lingard, Rashford; Greenwood

Unavailable: Bailly (Injured), Fosu-Mensah (Injured), Dalot (Injured), Pogba (Injured)

Doubtful: Rojo (Injured), Matic (Injured), Martial (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Both teams warmed up for the derby with impressive wins in midweek as City beat Burnley and United overcame Spurs. Guardiola's men have not been at their free-flowing best lately but have been playing at a high enough level that they should have too much attacking quality for their neighbours here.
