Manchester City v Manchester United team news

Erik ten Hag has already confirmed that Harry Maguire is injured and will not be in the squad for this Manchester derby.

Premier League Player of the Month Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have been injured but are both back in training ahead of this one.

Ten Hag said his only other absentees are longer term injuries such as Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams.

Our prediction: Manchester City v Manchester United

This will not be an easy afternoon for United but we are capable of getting the win.

United have not conceded away from home since the 4-0 loss against Brentford and another clean sheet would be the ideal platform for a result here.

United’s two Premier League away wins this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline, and a repeat in this one would go down very nicely indeed.
