Manchester United v City: Combined XI

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United host Manchester City at Old Trafford later tonight in a game the Premier League champions will be hoping to restore some kind of pride.

David Moyes has had a horrendous start to his time at Manchester United - with the Premier League champions failing to compete for the title and out of both domestic cup competitions.

Their only chance of winning silverware this season will be in Europe with Manchester United scheduled to play Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the prestigious competition in the next fortnight.

Manchester City, on the other hand, are among the leading candidates to steal the Premier League title away from their arch-rivals.

Manuel Pellegrini's side are six points behind Manchester City - but have three games in hand on current leaders Chelsea.

Manchester United will be hoping to dent their rivals' chances of winning their second ever Premier League title and will also look to go into their clash with Bayern Munich brimming with confidence.

Here we have combined the two clubs to produce a combined XI.
