David Silva is fit to face United after missing the midweek defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. Vincent Kompany and Fabian Delph, who both also missed the game, will be assessed tomorrow, Pep Guardiola confirmed at today's press conference.
“Kompany before the game against Shakhtar felt something and was not comfortable, and that’s why he could not play.
"He knows his body better than anyone.
"He felt something and couldn’t play against Donetsk. I wanted him to play to get rhythm before Old Trafford.
"Tomorrow we will know if he can play.
“[Fabian] Delph was sick, he vomited and had a fever and that’s why he couldn’t play.
“Today is their day off, so I don’t know the other players but tomorrow I will check the others’ condition.”
City's last league game against United at Old Trafford ended in a 2-1 victory, with Kevin De Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho scoring for the Blues. Overall City have won 48 of the 163 games played against United, with 49 draws and 66 defeats.
