City will still be without the influential Aymeric Laporte after he picked up a thigh injury in last week’s UCL game with Read Madrid. Kevin De Bruyne could also be missing for Pep Guardiola’s men after he sat out the FA Cup victory with a shoulder injury.
For the Manchester Debry, It’s currently 2-1 to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side across the three previous meetings this season, although both of of the Red Devils’ victories came at the Etihad Stadium.
Bruno Fernandes, who has been widely credited with giving United the lift which has resulted in their improved form, is expected to start again having been directly involved in 19 goals from 21 league games for Sporting Lisbon and United this season.
