Manchester City and Manchester United have named their starting XIs for Sunday’s blockbuster derby.

Pep Guardiola’s side are the only unbeaten team left in the Premier League this season and will put that record on the line at the Etihad this afternoon.

United meanwhile have come into some form under new boss Erik ten Hag with the Red Devils having won their last four domestically.

There was a huge blow just before kick off for City with Rodri having been declared not fit enough to play meaning that Bernardo Silva moved into midfield alongside Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan.

Jack Grealish started in attack with Phil Foden and Erling Haaland with Nathan Ake at centre-back with Manuel Akanji.

The visitors meanwhile were unchanged from their last victory almost a month ago now with Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench.
