Revealed: 76% of Manchester City fans want Leroy Sane to start vs United

According to our recent poll, the majority of Manchester City fans want German winger Leroy Sane to start in the Manchester derby on Sunday, with Bernardo Silva keeping his place in the midfield three.

Here at Football FanCast, we posed the question as to whether Ilkay Gundogan should replace his compatriot Sane in the side, with Bernardo Silva moving into the front three. This would have allowed City a bit more strength and bite in midfield against what is set to be a physically superior United side.

Clearly though, City fans want 22-year-old Sane to start the game. The £37m 2016 signing has netted three times and provided an impressive five assists in all competitions so far this season, so he will certainly be more of a threat to the United goal than with Gundogan in midfield and B. Silva further forward.

Gundogan made his long-awaited return from injury for City on Wednesday night as a 73rd-minute substitute for David Silva, but it looks as though he’ll have to wait a little longer for his first start.
