Man City vs Man Utd: Mikael Silvestre tells Ten Hag player to start, bench

Former Manchester United defender, Mikael Silvestre, has advised manager Erik ten Hag to start Marcus Rashford ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo when the Red Devils face Manchester City in a Premier League derby on Sunday.

Silvestre wants Ten Hag to put Ronaldo, who has been criticised at the start of the season for his lack of form, later in the encounter at Etihad Stadium.

Ronaldo has scored just one goal in eight appearances across all competition for Man United so far this season.

“I think right now, away from home against City, I would start Marcus and put Cristiano on later in the game. Cristiano has been away for Portugal,” Silvestre told Betting Expert.

He added: “Naturally, I would go for Marcus to start the game, especially as he’s been in very good form and has confidence. I would keep it that way.”
