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.

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?
