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.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
