MCI Vs MUN Dream11 And Match Report: Manchester City look to triumph in their bitter derby today as two old rivals step out in the middle.
For Manchester City, today’s encounter is not only about putting down Manchester United and with it defeating an opposition with whom they share a feisty, fiery and colossal rivalry. Today’s encounter, much like all the ones to follow for them in the Premier League now are must win ties owing to the deficit they are looking o paper over between themselves and Liverpool.
A season which has seen the side be inconsistent and lacklustre at stages to allow Liverpool to open up a massive gap at the top of the points tally, Manchester City have endured a campaign which has not been associated with them across the last couple of seasons. However, the side did manage to recover some of their lost touch the last time around as they routed Burnley 4-1 in a comprehensive and clinical performance, one which alluded towards the real might of this City side.
And it’s a display they’ll be looking to emulate come today’s encounter against Manchester United in a derby which has conventionally being contested as bitterly and in bad blood as rivalries go. What makes this an intriguing affair is the surprise 2-1 win Manchester United managed to pull off against Tottenham the last time around, a result which gave their manager a fresh lease of life in the league.
However, despite that performance, this Manchester City outfit is a way superior opponent, a side who’ll be looking to come hot out of the blocks and obliterate their opposition with ease. This match looks like a foregone result, a match where the home side should end up cruising their way to a clinical win on the day.

MCI Vs MUN Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We have decided to venture into this encounter with Ederson from Manchester City as our pick in the goal-keeping department. The side have been paper thin at defence, a backline which has hardly been sound, one which will see Ederson exposed to shots today which should see him come up with a solid amount of save points on the day.
MCI Vs MUN Dream11 Defenders
Despite the likelihood of Manchester United pulling off a cleansheet in this outing being negligible, we have still decided to venture in with a trio of picks from the side for this one. Their defenders are going to be asked to keep moving back and try to boost up their defensive gameplan as City plunder and pepper them with a slew of attacking sorties, a set of events which should see this trio pull off some good tackle and block points.
Both the CBs in the form of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof come in for us for the day along with rightback Aaron Wan-Bissaka while from the home side we have the one pick come in as well for us in the form of Benjamin Mendy.
MCI Vs MUN Dream11 Midfielders
We had to begin this department of our Dream 11 side with Kevin de Bruyne from Manchester City. These kind of matches are exactly ones where the midfield thrives in with the player being asked to express himself freely and pester oppositions with a slew of shots in a bid to break down stringent, compact and stern defences.
We also get in David Silva from the side after his two assists in the last encounter against Burnley along with CDM Rodrigo Hernandez while our only pick from Manchester United sees Scott McTominay be picked up by us.
MCI Vs MUN Dream11 Strikers
With the two goals against Tottenham, Marcus Rashford took his tally upto 9 goals and 4 assists for the season to make him our first selection in this unit of our side. Manchester United’s leading goal scorer, he’s looked their best bet when moving forward, a striker who’ll be looking to capitalise on a lacklustre home defence today as well.
From the other side of the component meanwhile, we will be closing out our Dream 11 team with the pick of Raheem Sterling.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kevin de Bruyne will be captaining our side out with his counterpart Sterling being made our vice-captain.
