Norwich City travel to Manchester in desperate need of three points to ensure they’re not cut adrift of the rest of the teams chasing survival.
As for Manchester United, they sit in fifth but have been very unpredictable. The Red Devils have been victorious over Manchester City, Leicester, Tottenham Hotspur and led against Liverpool for just under an hour.
The earlier encounter this season between the two sides ended in a 3-1 win for Manchester United despite Krul saving two penalties.
With Farke having almost the full squad to pick from, here is the team that we expect him to field.
GK - Tim Krul
The Dutchman will most likely be the only City player who will have fond memories of the Red Devils trip to Carrow Road and with McGovern less than convincing against Preston, City’s number one is a certain starter.
RB - Max Aarons
Impressive performances of late have caught the interest of a host of top six teams but as long as he stays in Norfolk, he will start
CB - Grant Hanley
He has been close to a revelation since his return to the team with his dominant captain’s performances at the heart of the City back line and offers City fans the exciting prospect of a Godrey and Hanley centre back partnership.
CB - Christoph Zimmermann
The German will probably have to deal with Rashford who is in the form of his life and has already scored more goals this season than he has in any other season so it will be one of Zimmermann’s toughest tests.
LB - Sam Byram
Byram will have to deal with the lightning quick James which will be one of his toughest tests in the yellow and green shirt but should he succeed, Norwich could beat the shaky United.
CDM - Alex Tettey
Every Norwich fan will remember the Norwegian’s toe punt that wrong footed De Gea last time out at Old Trafford but if he does his job well on Saturday he will be just as vital to City.
CDM - Mario Vrancic
It’s difficult to predict whether Farke will opt for the attacking minded Vrancic or more defensive minded Trybull but we think the young German manager will go for Vrancic. If the Bosnian does start he will need to run the show and display his magnificent passing and elegant play.
LM - Todd Cantwell
If the transfer speculation is true, the Dereham born playmaker may be moving to Old Trafford and a great performance against his possible future team would go a long way to him moving on.
CAM - Kenny McLean
McLean and Vrancic are going to have to be on top of their game if they are to win the midfield battle and if the Scotsman links up with his fellow attackers well, City could make it two Old Trafford wins in two trips.
RM - Emi Buendia
After being nominated for Premier League Player of the Month, it’s fair to say the Argentine has announced himself to the Premier League in style. He got the first ever 10 without scoring in my player ratings after he ran the show against Crystal Palace so not putting him in the team would be a crime.
ST - Adam Idah
With Pukki and Drmic injured and Srbeny returning to Germany, Idah is City’s only available striker for their trip to Manchester and after scoring a hat trick against Preston last week, City fans will be confident (and hopeful) that he can net again this week.
