KEEP GOING: Paolo Fernandes continues to work hard despite his early knock

Manchester City get their 2017 in the Premier League 2 under way with a trip to Manchester United on Monday but where will the match be decided?

Having suffered only two defeats so far this season, City will go into the match full of confidence but who could make the difference?

Axel Tuanzebe v Brahim Diaz

City’s diminutive Spaniard has been shuffled around the pitch a lot this season but it hasn’t dampened his influence on the side.

No matter what position he lines up on Monday, he’ll almost certainly come in to contact with United defender and captain Axel Tuanzebe.
