Man City vs Manchester United starting lineups

It's time for the Manchester derby and both managers have released their starting lineup for the tie.

City duo of Oleksandr Zinchenko (knee) and Ilkay Gundogan (suspension) are back in contention for the Manchester derby but the game comes too soon for striker Sergio Aguero (thigh) while defender Aymeric Laporte and winger Leroy Sane (both knee) are both long-term absentees.

Midfielder Paul Pogba remains absent for United with an ankle injury but forward Anthony Martial (knock) could return. Nemanja Matic is edging closer to the matchday squad, while defenders Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Diogo Dalot are building fitness after injury.

The game will be played at the Etihad Stadium.
