Premier League

Manchester Derby Date And Possible Lineup

Manchester United will face Manchester City in an English Premier League match at Old Trafford on November 6th at 15:30 East African Time.

This will be the first encounter between the two clubs this season. 

Manchester City defeated Manchester United 2-0 at Old Trafford in their most recent match. Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho, and Jack Grealish, on the other hand, had not moved to Manchester. 

It will be a tough and competitive encounter, as both teams appear to be in good shape this season thanks to their recent recruits. 

The strongest lineups that the two sides could utilize against one another are shown below. 

Manchester United is a football club based in England 


Cristiano Ronaldo's new role of playing as a false nine for Manchester United has worked out wonderfully, and he has already scored in the UEFA Champions League and the English Premier League while in that position, thus he should start as the main striker. 

Marcus Rashford has returned from injury and will start on the left wing, while Jadon Sancho or Mason Greenwood will play on the opposite wing. 


From the middle, Bruno Fernandes has posed a serious threat to opponents. He creates a lot of chances and even scores goals from midfield, thus he deserves to start as an offensive midfielder. 

The defensive midfielders should be Paul Pogba and MC Scott Tominay. 


To ensure that the defense is sturdy and impenetrable, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, and Aaron Wan Bissaka could start. 

David De Gea is deserving of a starting spot at the back of the net. He has made multiple saves for his club this season and is in excellent form. 

Manchester City


Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola should start Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez on the wings, with Gabriel Jesus as the main striker. 


Manchester City has made a new signing. The attacking midfielders should be Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne. 

Rodrigo is the only defensive midfielder Pep should use. 


To keep the defense sturdy and impenetrable, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, John Stones, and Walker should start.
