Kevin De Bruyne seeking 'massive' Manchester derby win

City will make the short journey to OldTrafford on Sunday to face their arch-rivals, who are now one place behind and eight points behind them in the league.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has stated David Silva could miss Sunday's Manchester derby away to city rivals Manchester United due to injury.

Leaders City are eight points clear of second-placed United ahead of their first meeting this season at Old Trafford and a win would open up an 11-point advantage at the top.

The 24-year-old France global said last week he hoped "very important" City players would suffer injuries in the title race.

"I think teams respect us".

City have won 14 of 15 Premier League this season, drawing the other, and all five Champions League group games.

A derby is always special. That gives us the best chance to win.

The Serbian global sat out Tuesday night's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow which secured United's place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages, but, speaking in his post-match press conference, the boss explained that Matic is "still injured but will play for sure".

Zabaleta was afforded a hero's welcome on his first return to the Etihad since bringing the curtain on his City career.

Having already secured top spot, Wednesday's match has little riding on it for City and Guardiola is expected to rest players.

"They are doing great and have a great team".

Silva joined City from Valencia in 2010, just days after becoming a World Cup victor with Spain after they beat Holland 1-0 in the final in South Africa.

"Of course, I was a little upset because I thought we did great and were so close to getting at least one point".

David Moyes has not enjoyed the best start to life at the London Stadium, yet it seems the hard work on the training ground is starting to pay off, with West Ham's midfield particularly impressive against the Blues (which is something that could not be said for much of the campaign). "We are going to need him as well for the derby".
