๐Ÿ”ฎ United vs City: Predicted XIs as Jesse Lingard faces competition for his place

The red and blue halves of Manchester collide tonight in the first leg of the EFL Cup semifinals at Old Trafford.

Here's how we expect the teams to line up on an occasion that always gets the pulse racing.

🔴 United predicted XI (4-2-3-1)

Romero; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelöf, Williams; Fred, Matic; James, Greenwood, Rashford; Martial

In terms of goal and assists output, 2019 was a terrible year for United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard. Patience is wearing thin in the terraces at Old Trafford and with teenager Mason Greenwood impressing during his cameos in the team this season, will Solskjaer make the tough decision and drop the 27-year-old? Perhaps a slight knock for Lingard might help to make the decision for him. 

🔵 City predicted XI (4-3-3)

Bravo; Walker, Fernandinho, Garcia, Mendy; De Bruyne, Rodri, D. Silva; Mahrez, Agüero, Sterling

Leroy Sané is the only long-term absentee for Pep Guardiola, who was recently buoyed by the news that Aymeric Laporte has returned to training for the Citizens. Oleksandr Zinchenko will rival Benjamin Mendy for a starting spot at left-back.
