Guardiola: Silva Doubtful For Manchester Derby, City Not UCL Favourites

Manchester City's Pep Guardiola as he talks with Southampton's Nathan Redmond after the match

The former West Ham defender says the Sky Blues do have some weaknesses in their style of play but admitted it is hard for the opposition to sustain the same level of energy City have been continually displaying until the final whistle.

Gale feels City pose too strong a threat for United to press and claims Guardiola's men could "pierce them apart".

This isn't a dead rubber by any means but Man City will be wary of the busy time they'll surely have on Sunday against Man Utd and don't have as much to play for as Shakhtar.

"Manchester City are one of the best teams in Europe, if not the world, to watch at the moment", Mills told Sky Sports News.

City face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, but having already secured top spot in their group, there is little riding on the game.

Angelo Ogbonna put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time with a firm header from a corner, further underlining a growing belief that City side can be exposed at set-pieces.

On whether Atiku's exit from the APC has any effect on Buhari , she said: "The president is not perturbed at all, he is not moved in any way".

"It seems like no one can stop them, but I still think someone can".

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".

This was City's club-record 12th successive league victory, demonstrating again that even on nights when their football does not catch the breath, they have the steel, nous and spirit to eke out a win.

He said: "Maybe [it is] good for me to get a little bit of rest and prepare myself for Sunday".

The Belgian, 26, delivered a pinpoint pass to David Silva who steered the ball into the back of the net to make it 2-1 late on against West Ham United.

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. I am so pleased to see them playing that well.
