Manchester Derby Combined XI

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City take on Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United at the Etihad on Thursday night, so we thought we would pick a combined XI for the match.

Click through the gallery above to see our Manchester derby combined XI!

The last time these two sides met in the Premier League was back in September, when the Citizens beat the Red Devils 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Mourinho got his revenge in the EFL Cup, however, when United knocked their "noisy neighbours" out of the competition, which they went on to win.

There are quite a few absentees for the upcoming derby, the most notable being Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Juan Mata, Ilkay Gundogan and Gabriel Jesus.

The match will have a big bearing on the race for the top four, as the fifth-placed Old Trafford club are currently just one point behind their city rivals on the log.

What would your combined XI look like?
