I hope most of you out there have been more productive than me today. Just can't focus on anything when it's derby day. Anyways, on to the lineups:
TEAM NEWS: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany (c), Nastasic, Clichy, Barry, Yaya Toure, Milner, Silva, Nasri, Tevez #manchesterderby #MCFC— Manchester City FC (@MCFC) April 8, 2013
MANCHESTER UNITED XI: De Gea, Rafael, Vidic, Smalling, Evra, Welbeck, Carrick, Jones, Giggs, Rooney, Van Persie. #GGMU— MANUTD Indo.fans (@fansMANUTD_Indo) April 8, 2013
Samir Nasri has kept his starting place on the back of last week's performance against Newcastle. The only question going into this match was who would be starting up top, and Mancini has opted for Tevez. I think City have the favorable matchup in the midfield with Milner, Toure, and Barry up against Carrick, Jones, and Giggs. Let's hope it all works out.
