- Manchester Central - Suhail Rahuja: The seat where Parliamentary Labour Party chairman Tony Lloyd will defend a notional majority of 11,636 over the Lib Dems. The Conservatives start in third place with 10.4%.
- Manchester Gorton - Caroline Healy: The seat where Gerald Kaufman will defend a notional majority of 6,355 over the Lib Dems. The Conservatives start in third place with 9.9%.
- Manchester Withington - Chris Green: A seat which was a remarkable Lib Dem gain for John Leech in 2005, where he will now defend a notional majority of 531 over Labour. The Conservatives start in third place on 10.4%.
- Wythenshawe and Sale East - Janet Clowes: An unchanged seat where Paul Goggins has a 10,827 majority for Labour over the second-placed Conservatives.
