Rumours of the imminent announcement of his new contract extension – what a better way to announce it than after a Manchester Derby win for the blues?
Always the kind of game that the youngster absolutely shines in.
Excellent in both of last season’s derby games, his intensity is higher than the game itself and so would be outrageous to leave him on the bench.
The skill, the technique and the defensive tenacity could be the match winning formula we need on Sunday. However, taking a spot on the wing would be unfortunate for Grealish as he had put on an exciting display just before international break.
Well – these are the games we got him for. I’m interested to see whether United’s more solid defensive displays will be enough to keep out the Norwegian.
Nevertheless, he will draw United’s spine in and open up space for the blues to take advantage of.
I am hoping the South Stand get the crowd going on Sunday. See you there!
What do you think, blues? What do you predict Pep’s starting XI will be for his 13th Manchester Derby? Come on CITEH!
