City v United: Game Thread

It's the only place to be this weekend.

Laurence Griffiths

Lineups are in:

A couple things to take note of. Firstly, Mangala is out of the squad with a hip problem. Most City fans were asking for Demichelis in this one, and we've got him no matter what. Secondly, even with Mangala out, Nastasic is nowhere to be found. That Dedryck Boyata is on the bench is the likely the last nail in that coffin.

Now, on to the formation. It is hard to tell from just a tweet though the obvious thought is that it is a 4-4-2 one again. The versatility of Jovetic to play multiple positions throws a veil over this, however, so we will have to see how they line up out on the pitch. The Montenegrin could easily be in the hole as the #10, or be shifted on the left side too. This is, of course, Manuel Pellegrini though. We'll expect the 4-4-2.

As for United, no surprises there. Rafael's injury aside, we already knew what the lineup would be beforehand, and we know where they are dangerous. Valencia on the right? Yes please, and I'll have seconds with that.

Thoughts? Comment away...
