Guardiola set to name strong side

Manchester City boss Guardiola is expected to utilise his large first-team squad in the derby clash at Old Trafford and he will rotate but is still set to field a strong-looking XI.

One change will be enforced with Kevin De Bruyne out with an ankle injury and another that already seems decided is Willy Caballero will come in for Claudio Bravo in goal.

Tosin Adarabioyo is another youngster tipped to be involved but Guardiola admits drafting in a whole host of inexperienced youngsters is not the plan, especially as City need a win following five games without a victory.

He said: "Normally young players have to be involved when the team is in a good moment and we cannot forget the last five games we didn't win.

"To put three, four or five young players in at the same time is not good in that moment because you have to protect them."
