Which of the two former teammates will end up on the winning side?

Manchester City (MCI) and Manchester United (MUN) will go head-to-head in one of the most fiercely contested rivalries in English football on Sunday (October 2) at the Etihad in Manchester.

United have done well to recover from a horrendous start; they're in fifth position with 12 points from six games after losing their first two. They'll look to break into the top four with a surprise win here. Manchester City, meanwhile, will look to move within a point of table-toppers Arsenal by beating their rivals at home.

City battered United in both their meetings last season and will look to continue in the same vein here.

Manchester City (MCI) vs Manchester United (MUN) Dream11 Fantasy Suggestions

Manchester City will walk into this game as the favourites despite United's ability to hit them on the counter. As a result, both suggestions have more City players than United. Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, and Jadon Sancho are all essentials, in my view.

One of Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen could operate as the false 9 for United in Marcus Rashford's absence. Manchester City has a host of attacking options listed as midfielders, so it's not possible to accommodate all of them in one team.

Erling Haaland is the only player listed as a forward who's likely to start, with Riyad Mahrez a rotation risk. Haaland is among the best captaincy options for this game, with De Bruyne and Jadon Sancho the other picks I've gone with.
