Man United Action Shot

Here are the line-ups for Manchester United and Manchester City for the derby this evening, kick-off just after eight.

Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Jones, Evra, Young, Carrick, Giggs, Welbeck, Rooney, Van Persie.

Subs: Lindegaard, Valencia, Hernandez, Nani, Cleverley, Kagawa, Buttner.

Manchester City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany (c), Nastasic, Clichy, Barry, Yaya Toure, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Tevez.

Subs: Pantilimon, Lescott, Dzeko, Kolarov, Garcia, Aguero, Kolo Toure.

United go into this game looking to increase their Premier League lead to 18 points, which would put them within four points of sealing the title. United have dropped points in only one match at home this season, which was the defeat they suffered to Tottenham Hotspur.

City go into this game looking for their eighth win of the season. They will be hoping for a similarly emphatic performance to the 6-1 drubbing they dished out to United last year in this fixture. Only Arsenal have conceded fewer goals away from home this season.

What is your prediction?
