Juan Mata and Raheem Sterling in Manchester City vs. Manchester United dervy

Matchday 16 of EPL hosts the Manchester derby between City and United. The two teams meet at a time in which Man. City has 11 points ahead of its rivals, United.

City is trailing 11 points behind the leaders Liverpool, and 3 points behind the second-place Leicester, so a win is absolutely needed for the current Premier League champions.

On the other hand, United comes after a win in the last round against Tottenham which gives them a boost of confidence ahead of the clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Team news:

Solskjaer said that he hopes to have Anthony Martial available for selection, but Paul Pogba will miss this one.

Pep Guardiola cannot count on Sergio Aguero, Emeric Laporte, and Leroy Sane, who are out on injuries, Oleksandr Zinchenko being doubtful for the derby, although it is unlikely that he will be used as a starter.

Possible lineups:

Saturday’s derby will be the 179th in all competitions, United winning 73, City 53 and the remaining 52 having finished in draws.
