Having beaten Chelsea mid week at Old Trafford in the Champions League spirits should be running high whilst Man City come into the game off the back of a 3-0 hammering from Liverpool at Anfield.
Rumours of a weakened team proved to be false as United named a strong squad to face City. Paul Scholes’ fears have been allayed as he is drafted into the middle of the pitch whilst Dimitar Berbatov starts having been on the bench against Chelsea.
Starting XI: van der Sar; O’Shea, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra; Scholes, Carrick, Park; Valencia Berbatov Nani
Subs: Owen, Anderson, Smalling, Chicharito, Fabio, Gibson, Kuszczak
