The clash which is the most anticipated game of the season so far for all the big money signings on show, for both side of the team. Manchester United starlet 18-years-old Marcus Rashford and young City striker 19-years-old Kelechi Iheanacho could be the men to decide the result of the game.
Last season both players burst to the scene,with Rashford shooting from the anonymity of United's youth set-up all the way to Euro 2016 duty with England and Iheanacho scoring eight times for City as he usurped Wilfried Bony as the main back-up to star man Aguero.Both teenagers cost a relative pittance. In the absence of the suspended Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho could start the game to decide the battle between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola while Marcus Rashford who  scored a hat-trick on England Under-21 duty this week and a  late winner, at Hull could also start.

Outstanding Goal Scored:
Last April, against Stoke Iheanacho’s second goal in City’s 4-0 win when he accelerated away from three defenders before coolly rounding the goalkeeper, was a classic finish. The goal showcased his strengths, pace and determination to go for goal and a calm finish at the end of it.
Finally,Rashford will become a regular starter for both club and country in a short while toeing the part of England’s great such as Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler. While City's Iheanacho if managed correctly, could find himself earmarked as a ready-made successor to Aguero and with Pep Guardiola offloading Wilfried Bony during the final days of the transfer window Iheanacho will get ample opportunities to shine this season.
