Wright-Phillips claims no Man United player can get into the Man City team

Shaun Wright-Phillips has made the astounding claim that or anyone else would currently get into’s team.

The Manchester derby will take place this weekend, with City presently leading the standings with a six-point advantage.

However, they have played one game more than United, who are still in contention for a top-four finish.

United are now on an eight-game Premier League unbeaten streak under Ralf Rangnick, but have been chastised for dropping points in four of those games.

Shaun Wright-Phillips is adamant that no Man United players will be included in Man City’s squad.

Pep Guardiola’s side leads the standings heading of this weekend’s Manchester derby.

Ronaldo has only scored once in his past nine games, and commentators are questioning whether the Portuguese talisman has lost his touch.

And, ahead of a highly-anticipated Manchester derby, former City winger Wright-Phillips feels that not even Ronaldo would be able to break into Pep Guardiola’s starting XI, with Anthony Elanga being the ‘closest’.

‘No, not really,’ the former Blue said when asked if any United players could make it into the current City squad. Before [Cristiano] Ronaldo’s meltdown, I would have predicted that he could fit into a City team.

‘I haven’t seen Bruno Fernandes like we have in the last year, so I don’t think anyone would walk into City’s team.’ ‘Right now, Elanga is the only one who comes close.’
