David de Gea – Goalkeeper- The best goalkeeper in English football, possibly Europe, and a real key factor in United’s success thus far.

Bacary Sagna – Right back- his defensive capabilities just edged out Antonio Valencia in this XI.

John Stones – Centre back- crucial to City’s style of play as he likes to break out into midfield.

Eric Bailly – Centre back-   his strong performances have already made him a cult figure among United supporters,  Blind’s form has been keeping Chris Smalling out of the United side thus far.

Luke Shaw – Left back- with a string of solid displays, The left back has proved what a big miss he was to United last season

Fernandinho – Centre midfield- Fernandinho is a key man for Guardiola, he can drop back defensively and will easily dominate his position with ease.

Paul Pogba – Centre midfield- Pogba is on a moral high, not only that he is on a mission to win the fans approval this season, and what better way than to do his thing in the biggest game of the season.

David Silva – Centre midfield- a bit out of form last season, Silva just like Sterling is showing a bit more form this campaign, David loves a Derby an  will no doubt bring some excitement to the midfield.

Kevin De Bruyne – Right wing- a stunning campaign last season, De Bruyne won’t take long to bring that back this season and it will most likely be this match we see him come alive.

Raheem Sterling – Left wing- It looks as if Sterling has turned a corner under Pep and could be a threat in this clash if the past opening games of the Premier League are anything to go by.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Striker- with four goals so far and he could have added a few more away at Hull City. Zlatan is a key figure for United at present.

TOTAL: Manchester City 6-5 Manchester United
