Man City name a stronger XI from their breezy 4-0 win over Fulham in the FA Cup last time out. They make five changes as Walker, Rodri, De Bruyne, Sterling and Aguero come in. Man Utd stick with the 3-4-1-2 formation from their 6-0 thrashing of Tranmere. De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Williams, and Fred enter the fray.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men won their last visit to the Etihad 2-1 in the league last December.
