It’s a huge EFL Cup fixture in prospect at Old Trafford this evening as Manchester United host Manchester City in the second Manchester Derby of the season.

With first blood to Pep Guardiola of course, Jose Mourinho really needs a win despite it only being the League Cup with the Red Devils still recovering from their 4-0 humbling at Chelsea on Sunday.

It’s not been plain sailing for City either who arrive at Old Trafford on the back of a five-game winless streak following a scintillating start to the season.

Smashed 4-0 at Barcelona this time last week, the Citizens have endured two frustrating games at Etihad Stadium whereby they’ve surrendered points to both Everton and Southampton.

So in a case of two wounded animals, we’re expecting a cracker this evening although you’d expect there to be some changes given the Premier League is of course paramount in each other’s ambitions.

So without further ado, This Is Futbol have attempted to second guess Jose Mourinho while listing who we think will be in his starting eleven at Old Trafford this evening.
