Pep Guardiola makes six changes to Manchester City XI for Manchester derby

The Citizens, who beat Peterborough United in the FA Cup on Tuesday, will be looking to move six points clear at the top of the Premier League and claim their first home win against the Red Devils since November 2018

Injured centre-backs Ruben Dias and Nathan Ake are among the players not selected this afternoon, while Oleksandr Zinehcnko, FernandinhoIlkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus all drop to the substitutes’ bench after starting in midweek.

 

Joining Stones and Laoprte in defence, Kyle Walker returns at right-back, allowing Joao Cancelo to switch to left-back, while Rodri replaces Fernandinho as the sole pivot, with playmakers Kevin De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva joining the Spaniard in centre-midfield.

 

Stockport-born Phil Foden operated in a three-man midfield in midweek, but he starts in the attacking front three this afternoon, with Riyad Mahrez on the right flank and Raheem Sterling – who is still searching for his first ever goal against Man United at the 24th attempt – to begin on the left wing.

Academy graduates Lima Delap, James McAtee and Luke Mbete are al names on the substitutes bench.
