SUPER SUNDAY! Manchester United vs Manchester City To Battle on Sunday, 5:30pm
Manchester United and Man City face off in what could be a Premier League title-deciding derby on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola’s City lead city rivals United by eight points heading into the Old Trafford clash, with Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils well off the pace despite sitting second in the table.
A win for City on United’s turf would guarantee the League leaders an 11-point lead after just 16 games, but victory for Mourinho’s men could blow the title race wide open heading into a busy festive fixture pile-up.
The big miss for Man United is Paul Pogba, who is suspended for the next three League games after being sent off against Arsenal.
Manchester City boss Guardiola has warned that Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva could be ruled out of Sunday’s clash, though Mourinho has accused the Catalan coach of simply playing mind games with his team news.
Man United likely starting XI:
De Gea; Lindelof, Smalling, Rojo; Valencia, Matic, Herrera, Young; Lingard, Martial, Lukaku
Man City likely starting XI:
Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Kompany, Delph; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Silva, Sterling, Aguero, Sane
