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.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
