Manchester United will lock horns with Manchester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a 3-0 victory over Charlton Athletic in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup competition, whereas Pep Guardiola’s men recorded an unfortunate 2-0 loss to Southampton.

Pep Guardiola will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Kevin De Bruyne might get the nod over Ilkay Gundogan in midfield, whereas Erling Haaland is likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Ederson Moraes will return to operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will be hoping to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

John Stones will replace Aymeric Laporte to form the centre-half partnership with Manuel Akanji at the heart of City’s backline.

Rico Lewis should be a starter at the left-back position, whereas Kyle Walker will fill in on the other flank as the right-back. The full-backs will be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

Rodri might start in the holding midfield position and could be assigned with more of a defensive role to shield the away side’s back four.

Bernardo Silva will slot into the central midfield role, whereas Kevin De Bruyne is expected to start in the attacking midfield position. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the frontmen.

Kalvin Phillips will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could come on to make a cameo appearance in the second half.

Attack

Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing, respectively.

Erling Haaland will lead the line for Manchester City this weekend. The Norwegian international will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the United defence that has conceded just one goal in their last five matches across all competitions.

Julian Alvarez will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second forty-five minutes.
