Manchester United could drop Rafael for their Premier League trip to Manchester City on Monday.

Manchester United defender Rafael could reportedly be dropped for the club's decisive Premier League clash with Manchester City on Monday.

The 21-year-old Brazilian was part of the United defence that conceded four against Everton on Sunday, and received the infamous hairdryer treatment from manager Sir Alex Ferguson after the match, according to The Mirror.

The club have now conceded 19 goals at home this season, making it their worst defensive record in a singular campaign since the Premier League began.

Chris Smalling and Phil Jones will reportedly battle it out for a starting role on the right side of the defence.
