Man City boss Guardiola: Manchester derby not as noisy as in Spain

The Red Devils remain eighth in the Premier League and a title challenge now looks already off the cards.

Jose Mourinho's men secured a 2-2 draw with third-placed Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge last month thanks to Anthony Martial's two goals.

However, Manchester City have been in brilliant form in all competitions and the Citizens were 6-0 winners against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

DF Ashley Young, 6 - Struggled to deal with the left-sided combination of David Silva and Raheem Sterling, leaving space in behind twice before the City pair took advantage for the first goal.

He said: "We are outside the top four, how can we speak about the title?"

Former Arsenal playmaker Merson believes Manchester City will beat Manchester United at The Etihad on Sunday.

"I just told him that there was no need to make that gesture", he told Sky Sport Italia. They're the games you want to be involved in, like everyone else. No, no, no. Games against the contenders are special because if you win they don't win but we are in November.

United have made a habit of that in recent games.

The lack of a truly world-class creative player in the United squad stands out when they are up against a quality opponent like City, but Mata is the best that they have and he should be used more often.

"My head probably says City will win more than likely 2-0, 3-1, something like that". "I think they will".

A rather hard run of fixtures for the Red Devils will conclude with an away match against Manchester City in the Premier League.

Manchester City will be looking to exact revenge on Manchester United after their humiliating 3-2 loss to Mourinho's side last term.

Mourinho - managing his 300th Premier League match - was handed a pre-match blow in the shape of a Paul Pogba injury and United sorely missed his presence in midfield, as Pep Guardiola's men claimed victory without hitting top gear.
