Manchester City have little to be excited about in their Premier League campaign this year, with a 25-point gap between themselves and Liverpool, while the top four is all but secure. As ever, the atmosphere has been bubbling along very nicely and the players emerge from the tunnel to chants from both sides. The City goalkeeper was then left red-faced at the death as an errant throw was brilliantly dispatched into the net from 40 yards by Scott McTominay. Welcome to the Evening Standard's LIVE coverage of the Premier League derby between Manchester United and Manchester City. Hello and welcome to Standard Sport's coverage of this afternoon's Manchester derby. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side earned bragging rights on Sunday afternoon, completing the double over their local rivals with a deserved 2-0 victory at Old Trafford. Here's how we're expecting United to line-up this afternoon... And here is what we think Pep Guardiola will do with his City team, though trying to work out the Spaniard's selection policy tends to be a pretty thankless task... Man Utd XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Williams Matic, Fred, Fernandes, James, Martial, Subs: Romero, Bailly, Tuanzebe, Mata, McTominay, Greenwood, Ighalo, City XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko, Rodrigo, Gundogan, Foden, Bernardo, Sterling, AgueroSubs: Bravo, Walker, Jesus, Silva, Mendy, Mahrez, Garcia. United are now six points adrift of the Blues with 10 games remaining. The Argentine plays it to Foden, who picks out Sterling at the far post and his curling effort is parried away by De Gea. I think they will be aggressive with high wing-backs. But if any team can deal with that pressure, it's City. Will the Portuguese find the net in his very first Manchester derby today?
