On the United aspect of things, Anthony Martial is available and Edinson Cavani could make his return for Manchester United. The attacking duo had missed Tuesday night’s costly Champions League loss at RB Leipzig. Luke Shaw had also managed 61 minutes on his return from a hamstring injury which saw him out for a few weeks in Germany, where David de Gea also replaced Dean Henderson in goal after missing last weekend's win at West Ham through injury. Fred comes back into the fold having been suspended for United's Champions League decider after a red card against PSG.

For City, star striker- Aguero might not be starting the game after just coming back from a knee injury. Midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has just recovered from a blow to the ankle but defender Eric Garcia still faces a couple of weeks on the sidelines with a knock which wouldn’t let him start.
