DERBY: Who makes your Manchester XI?

Monday night's Manchester derby is all anyone is talking about here at TEAMtalk Towers, so we thought we'd pick a dream team using both squads.

The anticipation is building ahead of tonight's titanic tussle at the Etihad Stadium, with most pundits suggesting the winner - if there is one - will go on to lift this season's Premier League trophy.

We should get hold of the team line-ups at around 7pm, when we'll discover who Roberto Mancini and Sir Alex Ferguson have put their trust in.

But before then, we thought we'd have a little fun coming up with a starting XI selected from both Manchester City and United's hugely talented squads.

We only want players who could pull on a red or blue shirt this evening, so the likes of injured defender Nemanja Vidic - who'd be one of the first names on the team sheet if fit - can't be considered.

You can choose whatever formation you want, so have a look at our team, give us your thoughts, then put your manager's hat on and pick your own.

TEAMtalk's Manchester XI (4-4-2): Hart; Richards, Kompany (c), Evans, Clichy; Valencia, Yaya Toure, Scholes, Silva; Rooney, Aguero.

Subs: De Gea, Lescott, Young, Carrick, Nani, Welbeck, Balotelli.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
