Here is the predicted line up: 4-2-3-1
Goalkeeper: David de GeaThe United goalkeeper is perhaps the best in the world and surely picks himself. He is getting better with each match as those crucial saves against Swansea proved. The Spaniard is an automatic selection for the derby game at the Etihad Stadium.
Defenders: Valencia(captain), Lindelof, Smalling, YoungValencia will captain the side at the Etihad and would lead the side from the right side of the defense. He would be ably supported by Young on left flank. Together, they will need to keep things quiet against De Bryune, Sterling and Sane. Smalling would be the pillar of defense alongside Lindelof who was recently praised by the boss because of his ability to create from defense.
Midfielders: Matic, Pogba, Mata, Lingard, SanchezWhile Matic and Pogba would play as defensive midfielders, Mata and Sanchez would play on right and left-wing of United attack at the Etihad Stadium. Lingard who assisted one goal in last game, and was part of build up for other would play as central attacking midfielder. Together, United will rely on creativity and one touch play by their midfielders which they showed in the last game against Swansea.
