Manchester City versus Manchester United. Pep Guardiola versus José Mourinho. Premier League champions versus this season’s Premier League underachievers.

The Manchester Derby at the Etihad Stadium was expected to be one-sided. Manchester City have started the campaign in excellent form while United have struggled and are already nine points behind their noisy neighbours.

However, Mourinho’s side’s victory against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday was something of a game changer. Suddenly the Red Devils are confident and capable of causing a shock.

They don’t lack for quality but neither do City. And we have analysed the two sides to put together a combined XI, which you can watch in the video above.
