Lineups are in:
So, Pellegrini opts for five in the midfield. We're gonna win the league! Silva is in the hole behind Aguero, and Milner gets the start on the left over Nasri. Bony and Jovetic continue to be hurt and don't make the squad.
Louis van Gaal keeps Wayne Rooney up top and goes for a familiar lineup.
Should be a good match today as City seek their fifth consecutive derby victory. Last year in this fixture the good guys ran riot, winning 0-3. Thoughts on today's lineup? Comment away...
