An injury plagued United squad head across town to take across Manchester City in the first Manchester derby of the season. United will be without the services of several players through injury and a lingering flu that has moved it's way through the first team. It's expected that Dimitar Berbatov will be healthy and could possibly start. Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are both considered healthy and also may get the start. Luckily, the flu has apparently left the defense virtually untouched, as Carlos Tevez is expected to pass a late fitness test and make the start for City.
