After the disappointing draw against Everton in the Premier League, Manchester United returned to winning ways by beating Derby County in the FA Cup.
Next up, the Red Devils will collide against Manchester City at Old Trafford in the PL. Solskjaer’s men have beaten the Sky Blues twice at the Etihad this term but lost at home in the Carabao Cup. Who will come out on top this time?
We can expect the manager to make several changes in the squad that started vs Derby on Thursday night.
In the goal, David De Gea, who made a huge blunder vs the Toffees, could return to start in place of Argentine goalie Sergio Romero. In the back-line, we might see two changes. Maguire could return in place of Bailly to start with Lindelof in the central defense, on the other hand, Wan-Bissaka should replace Dalot to start in the RB role.
The likes of Fred and McTominay should retain their starting places in the center of the park for Man Utd.
In the attacking third, Greenwood and James should replace Mata and Lingard to play in the wide attacking positions and Anthony Martial should return in place of Ighalo to start as the main center forward in front of CAM Bruno Fernandes.
Here is Man Utd’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Man City:
