Martial comes through injury doubt to start for Man United

Anthony Martial (£7.6m) has come through his pre-match injury doubts to start for Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that he wasn’t sure if the Frenchman could feature from the beginning in Gameweek 16 but it looks as if he might have been playing mind-games ahead of such an important match.

Martial’s presence means that Manchester United’s attack is largely at full-strength for their trip across the city, Marcus Rashford (£8.8m) and Daniel James (£6.1m) either side of him.

However, the main Fantasy focus of this match is naturally going to be on the hosts and, thankfully, there are very few shocks and surprises.

Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) and Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) form two-thirds of the front-three with Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) also included in the starting line-up.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.3m) and David Silva (£7.6m) are both present in central midfield while Angeliño (£4.7m) gets a second start in a row at left-back.

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Angeliño, Fernandinho, Stones, Walker; de Bruyne, D Silva, Rodrigo; Sterling, Jesus, B Silva.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf, Wan-Bissaka; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Lingard, D James; Martial.

    City have lost it. Neville banging on about how well they are attacking

    Sure but we expect them to attack and for them to do it alot better than they have

    They have been average. United been poor second half but look like they could score everytime they come forward. Probably more threatening than city

      Pep needs to go OR spend a lot because this team needs it

          Sterling is fraud as a player. Without his tap ins he is average player maybe.

          Last season, City would have scored 4 here. This season they can't score 1. David Silva looks old in this team (can't win the ball back quickly, gives away cheap fouls).

              Defender.

              Not great with the ball at his feet.

            Loves defending so much, he’ll give the ball to the opposition to make another tackle. Beast.

          Selling Sterling and De Bruyne was the best thing I did this season

            Same here, reaped the ever so sweet rewards, even if things haven’t gone as well as they could of last few weeks. Deli and alli double up.
