Confirmed Squad: Manchester City vs Manchester United

Manchester United Squad vs Manchester City

12:16pm– Here we are. The derby.

It’s been built-up for weeks and on the minds of most United supporters for even longer. The two Manchester clubs sit first and second in the Premier League table, having already left the rest of the division in their wake. A win for the home side will draw them level with United on 36 points, potentially 10 points clear of the chasing pack. A win for the away side, of course, will see a 6 point gap open up at the top, as well as sending out a massive message to both City, and the other title hopefuls. (Not really sure who they are, mind you.)

Sir Alex Ferguson has stated that a win for United “will be one of our best ever results.” Considering how things have gone so far this season (and by things, I mean defending), I think he might be right.

12:38pm – The Manchester United team news for Manchester City has just been released and is below:


Staring XI:
De Gea, Rafael, Evra, Ferdinand, Evans, Valencia, Cleverley, Carrick, Young, RVP, Rooney
