Confirmed: Manchester United v Manchester City line-ups

This is how Manchester United and Manchester City will line up for the Premier League clash at Old Trafford this afternoon…

Manchester United will be looking to maintain their good run of form with victory over Manchester City at home this afternoon.

The Red Devils will head into the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on the back of a comfortable 3-1 victory over Aston Villa at home.

United are currently third in the Premier League table with 62 points from 31 matches, eight points behind leaders Chelsea, who have played a fewer game.

Meanwhile, City find themselves fourth in the league standings at the moment with 61 points from 31 games, just a point behind United.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are struggling for form and for points at the moment, and will head into this afternoon’s encounter on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace away from home.
