Kevin De Bruyne would prefer to face Paul Pogba in Manchester derby

Man City vs West Ham LIVE

The Kaptain was rested against West Ham on Sunday, and I don't think Pep wants to start him at Old Trafford having not played for 10 days.

Manchester City restored their eight-point gap over Manchester United on Sunday thanks to David Silva's late victor against West Ham United. It is a look Guardiola knows all too well and its reappearance indicates the biggest managerial rivalry of recent times is about to erupt again. "It showed what we are".

Pogba, who is serving a three-match domestic ban after receiving a red card in the win over Arsenal, said United must be ruthless in front of goal if they are to record their first win in three league games over City. He's a massive player.

"We started really well but we lost our patience".

Guardiola has favoured a lone striker this season, with either Sergio Aguero or Gabriel Jesus deployed at the head of their fluid, interchangeable attacking system. Foden is the more likely of the two but Yaya Toure and Ilkay Gundogan might have dibs on that position, with Pep Guardiola keen to ensure he doesn't allow his players' mentality to creep into the realm of complacency. "It's a competition, you want to play against the best teams and the best players", the City talisman added.

Guardiola's Man City believe they can beat anybody, any time, any place
Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling is set to become the Premier League's highest paid player with a new £300k-per-week contract, The Sun have reported.

"In the second half we tried to come back, had our chances, but we are not happy. Even if I'm not there, I'll be there watching the game, giving positive energy and, hopefully, we're going to win", the 24-year-old told reporters.

De Bruyne said: "If we don't win anything, are you going to talk about 20 wins?" We are a bit more humble.

City have been in irresistible form this season but it appears that teams may have identified a potential Achilles heel in their defence at set pieces. "They (United) might, for the first time this season, have just seen a little ray of hope", said former United captain Gary Neville.

Against an imposing United lineup that includes Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, the leaders could have their work cut out next week against master-tactician Jose Mourinho. "We need to be as good as they are, mentally".
