Manchester United vs Manchester City confirmed line-ups

Manchester City head to Old Trafford with not only aiming to claw back Chelsea in the Premier League title race, but also put one over on their greatest rivals.

Tonight’s opposition Manchester United are in the midst of a mini-resurgence though, so we doubt City will be taking anything for granted. A ridiculously dramatic Champions League flip-reversal against Olympiakos and a Wayne Rooney-inspired away win at West Ham has heaped a certain amount of pressure off of David Moyes’s shoulders.

Question marks loom over Chris Smalling (hammy), Jonny Evans (calf) and Rio Ferdinand (back) for the home side, while Nenamja Vidic (suspended) and Robin van Persie (knee) are definitely out of the picture.

Vince Kompany returns for the visitors, though Sergio Aguero (hammy) and Matija Nastasic (knee) won’t be involved.

Here’s how they line up tonight…
