Predicted Manchester United and Manchester City line-ups

Here is how we predict Manchester United and Manchester City will line up this weekend:

To be played on Sunday 25th October 2015 at 14:05. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester

Odds: Man Utd 13/8, Draw 12/5, Man City 8/5

Manchester United welcome Manchester City to Old Trafford on Sunday with just two points currently separating the teams in the Premier League and with all to play for.

Both sides were involved in Champions League fixtures this week, with United drawing 1-1 away to CSKA Moscow while City scored a late winner against Sevilla at the Etihad Stadum.

United may be struggling away from home but their form at Old Trafford is another matter entirely and they will be quietly confident of getting one over their fierce rivals, who are suffering from a spate of injuries to key players.

In truth anything can happen in these matches but United will know they can make an emphatic statement by defeating Manuel Pellegrini’s men, at which point few could suggest they are not genuine title contenders.

However, if City claim the victory it will be a hammer blow for United and a sign that the Blues are still ahead of the side whose shadow they were in for so long.
