Confirmed Manchester United XI vs Man City: Anthony Martial starts

Manchester United are set to play Manchester City at Old Trafford in the Premier League and Erik ten Hag has named his starting eleven for the derby.

The Red Devils go into the game looking for revenge after losing 6-3 at the Etihad in October. We were too passive that day and Diogo Dalot’s early booking had a negative effect on our approach.

City face a challenge to defend their Premier League title as Arsenal sit on top of the table. Pep Guardiola’s side have not been at their best and many Reds think we’ve a really good chance against them today.

In regard to the team selected by Ten Hag, David de Gea starts between the posts.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Tyrell Malacia are our full-backs, while Raphael Varane partners Luke Shaw at centre-back.

The first name on the team most week is Casemiro. It will be intriguing to see how he does in the midfield battle today, but he will need support from Christian Eriksen and Fred.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will attack from the flanks, while Anthony Martial passed a late fitness test and gets the nod to lead the line.

Come on United!
