Football - Moyes to call on defensive duo

David Moyes looks set to plunge Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand into their third match in a week when Manchester United visit Manchester City.

PA Sport Report

The pair have not operated in tandem three times in such quick succession since 2010 but Moyes seems certain to stick with them, having already done so for the victories over Crystal Palace and Bayer Leverkusen.

Rafael (hamstring), Danny Welbeck (knee) and Phil Jones (ankle) all missed the midweek Champions League win, while Nani is available after suspension.
