Manchester United and Manchester City are set to face off in a battle of the Premier League’s top two at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon so we’ve picked our combined Manchester XI.

José Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are able to boast an array of world-class talent in their expensively-assembled squads, and both will be hoping to strike a blow to their nearest title rivals.

City are currently top of the Premier League, unbeaten and eight points clear of United. The Red Devils will be desperate for a victory to close the gap to their ‘noisy neighbours’.

With the Manchester derby now arguably the most anticipated fixture on the Premier League calendar, we’ve put together a combined XI by choosing the best players from both squads.

Although Paul Pogba is suspended, and City will be without Benjamin Mendy and possibly Spanish magician David Silva through injury, we’ve picked our team assuming every player is fully fit and available for selection.

Check out the above video and let us know whether you agree with our selection on Twitter or Facebook.
