Erling Haaland and Marcus Rashford both start as Manchester United host Man City in Premier League action today.

Pep Guardiola named all his big players in the starting XI for the crucial Manchester derby.

Antony has dropped to the bench for the Red Devils, with Casemiro and Fred preferred in midfield, seeing Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes pushed further forward.

Jack Grealish is named among the substitutes for City, with Phil Foden starting after netting a hattrick in the reverse fixture.

Pep Guardiola’s men are hunting Arsenal at the top of the Premier League while Erik ten Hag’s Man Utd are seeking a top four finish this season.

Haaland, Foden and Riyad Mahrez lead the attack, supported by Kevin de Bruyne.

Joao Cancelo starts after being dropped in recent weeks.

This is Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola’s 500th top-flight match as a manager.

Guardiola’s 76 per cent win rate is the best out of any manager in Europe’s top five leagues to have taken charge of 100 or more games.

The Spanish tactician should be feeling confident today as he has won six Manchester derbies at Old Trafford.

That is twice as many as the ex-Barcelona boss has won at the Etihad
