Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, should consider starting Casemiro against Manchester City, according to ex-Liverpool star, Danny Murphy.
Murphy believes Ten Hag must get his midfield selection spot on as the Red Devils try to take points off the champions.
Pep Guardiola’s men did the double over the Red Devils last season and secured a 4-1 victory when they last met back in March.
A reason behind United’s upturn in form is Ten Hag’s midfield, with Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Christian Eriksen working well in that area.
However, Murphy writing in his latest BBC Sport column, said: “Manchester United’s midfield has played a big part in the recent resurgence by Erik ten Hag’s side — but it’s absolutely crucial he gets that area right at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
“Ten Hag has to decide whether he keeps both Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes in there against Manchester City or chooses a more defensive-minded set-up and goes with two proper holding players this time.
“With a player as good as Casemiro waiting in the wings for his first league start, the temptation must be to partner him with Scott McTominay to give extra protection.”
