Man City v Man United 4-2-3-1 setup: Probable Lineups – Mourinho sweats over availability of 6 key players

Manchester City welcome Manchester United to the Etihad today for the Manchester derby.

United boss Jose Mourinho is facing the possibility of being without six key players.

Paul Pogba has been ruled out with injury, joining Chris Smalling (knee), Phil Jones (foot) and Juan Mata (groin) on the sidelines.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo (both knee) are also both out injured.

Mourinho will have Marcus Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard, who were all on the bench on Sunday available.

Anthony Martial should retain his place in the lineup after an impressive outing against Burnley.

Mourinho pulled off a surprise formation against Chelsea but is expected to revert to a 4-2-3-1 with Pogba out.

City meanwhile will be without Germany international of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan who is sidelined.

Pep Guardiola has been given a boost in terms of his attacking options as Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are fit.

City have an impressive record against their cross-city rivals lately having avoided defeat in their last four head-to-head games.
