Manchester City – Manchester United: the official line-ups


By: Manu Tournoux

It’s the European shock of the weekend! The Manchester derby with the Citizens welcoming the Red Devils to the Etihad Stadium, a match counting for the 27th day of the Premier League. Currently 2nd in the championship, City must win to stay in contact with leader Liverpool. Opposite, Manchester United are 6th and are also aiming for three points so as not to lose sight of the top 5, a derby with high stakes which will be contested this Sunday. A thrilling match to follow live with commentary on the French Football Weekly website.

In terms of team compositions, Pep Guardiola does not deliver any surprises. A 4-2-3-1 system with a Rodri-Silva doublet in the midfield. In attack, Doku takes the place of Grealish (injury) while Alvarez starts on the bench just like Akanji. Among the visitors, Erik Ten Hag has decided to densify his midfield by associating McTominay with Mainoo and Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes will have a winger role on the right side of the attack.
