The Manchester Derby is few hours to go as Man United hope to end Cityzen’s long dominance in the EFL as we look at possible ways the both teams could line up
A victory over City will come as a major boost to Ole Solskjaer’s Man United managerial career as he sets his eyes on the EFL trophy after seeing Spurs cruising into the finals following a 2-0 win yesternight.
With Aaron Wan-Bissaka back in action, Solskjaer is expected to unleash his rested stars as he was seen leaving out some players during the Man United Aston Villa game.
It’s no doubt, Solskjaer considers the game tonight important as every other game, coupled with the fact that it’s against a strong side that managed to trash Chelsea during the weekend despite having 5 preferred men out of the game.
Pogba and Bruno could be partnering with Van De Beek in the center, leaving Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Rashford at the front as Edinson Cavani is yet to make a return while Odion Ighalo has been fizzled out by the Norwegian manager.
Maguire is likely to make a start also alongside Victor Lindelof.
Manchester City is expected to have Sergio Aguero and Riyad Mahrez making a start today after seeing both stars coming off the bench barely 5 minutes to the Chelsea’s game finally whistle.
Gabriel Jesus is still on isolation following the team’s COVID hit which the number has reportedly risen to 8 with a member of the staff also included.
Kevin De Bryune is a regular and expected to come in the center of Guardiola’s 4-1-4-1 formation that would have Cancelo at the right back after the former Juve man was dubbed the best right back in the EPL by some fans.
Foden has been brilliant for Pep and could likely make a start tonight alongside fellow Chelsea game goal scorer, Ilkay Gundogan.
Man United also have a chance to go top of the Premier League table should they triumph or draw against Burnley before their Anfield trip.
