With this being such a big game for both managers I thought it deserved its only thread away from the generic EFL cup one.

Discuss...

This is a relatively meaningless match that has taken on some extra significance because of a) our dire form and b) City's slightly less dire form. The PAIN has to continue for one of us.

Hopefully it's Silkyman them.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.
Both managers need a win, and neither of them would want a 'loss' in this game even if they didn't really care about the competition. I'd be tempted to go all in on the 'playing the kids' side. With three games in a week, culminating in a visit from Barca you'd have good reason to rest players and if you then lose you can shrug it off a little more easily.

There's the same argument for that from United too. Hopefully it won't be one senior side v one kids side, either way around.

While they have been playing better their form is worse though, right? Seen it stated anyway, please look up. Thanks in advance.

You are right, we've won two of our last five games (both Europa League games) whereas City have not won a game in five.

Good point Bilo, thanks.

I'm hoping to see Mkhitaryan involved at some point tonight. Also hoping that, if he does show, he puts in a better performance than he did against City last time because if he doesn't we probably won't see him for six months.

Couldn't give a shit who wins but Jose must absolutely avoid a battering. More than Pep.

Mkhitaryan might as well look for a new club.

Two left footed centre backs is rarely a good idea. Not because it can't work theoretically, obviously two right footed centre backs is very common, but usually any left footed player has little to no experience playing on the right side.

Mkhitaryan is weird as fuck though.

Pretty mixed side for City, mind.

We've already done better than we did against Chelsea by this point, get in.

Wonder how biased Tyler will be in his commentary tonight, as it seems Mike Dean is being for the home side...

Surely United A team can beat City B team?

That pass from Ibra to Rashford has me salivating.

Luke Shaw is being murdered by Jesus Navas. They need to get him some help because that ball is coming in every single time.

Lucky for him Navas' final ball is gash, but still.

Preferred the one where he gave it away and fell over.
He knew a bit of comic relief was in order, such a feel for the occasion.

Excellent start to the second half has paid off, 1-0.

And Tyler was creaming his kegs. When City went up the other end he sounded like he was delivering an epitaph.

You'll get Silkyman started if you keep up with that sort of thing.
