Man City's Kevin De Bruyne: 'Beating Manchester United will not mean anything'

Man City's Kevin De Bruyne: 'Beating Manchester United will not mean anything'

City maintained their eight-point lead over United at the top of the Premier League by beating West Ham 2-1 on Sunday afternoon, but speaking after that match De Bruyne was in no mood to discuss Pogba's comments, or any cosmic power, though he did say he would not wish an injury on a fellow player.

Pep Guardiola's side have an opportunity to take an 11-point advantage over the Red Devils if they win at Old Trafford.

'We want do to what we always do, try to play our style, put them under pressure and see where it goes from there.

Next up for City is the UEFA Champions League Group F clash against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday before they lock horns with bitter rivals Manchester United, who are second in the English top flight.

That effort was cancelled out by Nicolas Otamendi just before the hour and after creating a series of chances to win the game - many of them repelled by West Ham goalkeeper Adrian - Silva finally broke through. "Hopefully, we can win the game, it would be massive".

"Silva is Manchester City's greatest ever player", Carragher told Sky Sports News.

De Bruyne will definitely not feature having incurred a suspension.

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

"They're a massive team, they want to win the title. I wish them all the best and hope they can win a lot of trophies".

"It was hard, teams seem to come here and get every man behind the ball, not interested in anything but parking the bus", City midfielder Fabian Delph told Sky Sports.

"We'll play the same there [Old Trafford]", he said.
