Manchester United Team News
United are still missing Paul Pogba, who is serving the second of a three-game domestic ban this weekend, while Raphael Varane, who suffered a hamstring injury in midweek, has been ruled out for a month.
Solskjaer may not be able to pitch the three-man rearguard that was so effective against Spurs due to Victor Lindelof’s injury, but the Swede is expected to recover.
This week, Fred, Cavani, and Mason Greenwood will all be in contention for first-team recalls, with Rashford possibly dropping out as Solskjaer makes room for the two veterans in the final third.
Manchester City Team News
Meanwhile, City have revealed that Ferran Torres will be out for another few months, while Laporte will join Pogba on the naughty step after his red card against Palace, and Kyle Walker is a doubt due to a foot problem.
As a result, John Stones, who scored an own goal in midweek, is expected to partner Ruben Dias in defence this week, while Kevin De Bruyne, who made a 15-minute cameo against Brugge, is expected to return to the starting XI.
With Sterling still without a goal against Man United after 23 outings, Foden should continue to be the focal focus of City’s attack with Jesus and Jack Grealish.
Manchester United XI:
De Gea; Bailly, Lindelof, Maguire; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Shaw; Fernandes; Ronaldo, Cavani
Manchester City XI:
Ederson; Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Jesus, Foden, Grealish
