"For us players, it's just another game, it's a special match for fans, because it's a derby against rivals." "If we win, we add three points and get three points." This is a very important game that we want to win, "said the Portuguese.
Pep Guardiole comes in a full derby: 12 goals scored in the last two games (6-1 in Southampton and 6-0 in Shakhtar).
"We played at home, with the support of our fans. We hope to continue to play as we did and we can achieve several goals," he said.
At the start of the 12th day, Manchester City is the isolated leader of the Premier League with 29 points, nine more than rivals United, seventh.
