Predicted Starting XI: Guardiola makes three changes, Sane and Zinchenko start for Man City

Manchester City are set to face Manchester United at Old Trafford tonight in a derby of paramount importance.

Bragging rights are far from the priority for Pep Guardiola’s side with the Premier League title in sight, though they are an appealing bonus to add to the occasion.

City come into the fixture following a gritty 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur and, with fatigue potentially starting to become a factor, there’s no doubt changes could be in the offing tonight.

With that said, Football FanCast are here to provide a starting line-up prediction ahead of the game which sees the Spaniard make three changes from the weekend.

The most notable return is that of Leroy Sane, a player who has struggled for first-team opportunities in recent weeks.

The switch sees Sterling move to the right-wing as Bernardo Silva drops into central midfield to fill the void left by Kevin De Bruyne, who picked up an injury on Saturday.

Fernandinho comes into defensive midfield to replace Ilkay Gundogan, affording the German a well needed rest after starting the last four matches on the bounce.

David Silva also returns to replace Phil Foden in a logical switch.
