Confirmed Manchester United XI to face Man City: Anthony Martial and Daniel James start

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included Anthony Martial and Daniel James in his Manchester United starting lineup for the derby against Manchester City.

The Reds are huge underdogs at the Etihad Stadium against Pep Guardiola’s side who are runaway league leaders and on a run of 21 consecutive victories.

United’s last three games have ended goalless but they would return to second in the league if they pull off an unlikely victory against their city rivals.

Solskjaer has made four changes from the dull stalemate against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Wednesday.

Dean Henderson keeps his place in goal for his first Manchester derby with David De Gea missing following the birth of his first child.

Victor Lindelof partners Harry Maguire at centre-back and Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka retain their place at full-back.

Fred joins Scott McTominay in a familiar midfield axis with Paul Pogba still ruled out injured and Bruno Fernandes starts in the more advanced role.

Edinson Cavani is ruled out so Daniel James starts in the attacking trident alongside Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

United’s bench includes Amad,  Mason Greenwood and Shola Shoretire.

Man Utd XI to face Man City: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Fernandes, Greenwood, James, Rashford.
