Confirmed Starting XI: Wilson, Dearnley, Kehinde and Hamilton to lead the line against City

Manchester United will face Manchester City in the Premier League 2 at Leigh Sports Village this afternoon. It is the first match in the league for United since they beat Sunderland 1-0 at the end of October. United though, have played two matches in the Premier League International Cup beating Swansea City and Athletic Bilbao by the same 2-1 scoreline sandwiched either side of the international break. United sit at the bottom if the Premier League 2 with just eight points – which is something the teams above them have in common with eleventh to eighth all on the same number of points – goal difference separating them. City

United sit at the bottom if the Premier League 2 with just eight points – which is something the teams above them have in common with eleventh to eighth all on the same number of points – goal difference separating them. City are seventh in the league, a point ahead of United so it is fair to say they are not doing all that well at this level either. A win for United will propel the side from the bottom to mid-table – a defeat will make it much tougher for United to catch City up.

Manchester United:

O’Hara;

Riley, Ercolani, Williams, Mitchell;

Sang, Scott;

Dearnley, Hamilton, Kehinde;

Wilson

Substitutes:

Warren, M. Johnstone, Gribbin, Boonen, Bohui

United and City have a rivalry throughout all levels, the biggest one being at first team level. United though will take this game to the stocks, aiming to turn their season around with a scalping victory in the mini-derby, which could galvanise the side to get something out of the season – which is much needed with the U23’s stalling for the past few seasons.
