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

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

City's late win over West Ham reopened an eight-point advantage over second-place United in the Premier League title race and extended their winning run to 13 games - equalling records previously set by Chelsea and Arsenal.

The men's September 2016 reunion promised much, Guardiola's slick City wiping the floor with United in the first half before a Claudio Bravo blunder enabled Zlatan Ibrahimovic to make a game of it in the second.

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

The 32-year-old said: "They are doing great and have a great team". Yaya Toure and Tosin Adarabioyo, who have only seen action in the Carabao Cup, also started.

Shakhtar might miss two important players because of injury: right-back Bodgan Butko, one of Shakhtar's top performers this season, and attacking midfielder Taison, a really important link between midfield and attack.

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.




But the Blues did look brighter after the break and Brahim Diaz, another exciting youngster, looked especially promising when he came on for Sane.

"We are playing well but it does not mean we will go on to win the competition ..."

City go into Sunday's derby with an extensive lead over United thanks to David Silva's 83rd-minute victor in the 2-1 victory over West Ham United.

In his time with Manchester City, Silva has collected two Premier League winners medals, an FA Cup and two Football League trophies. That is nine of 10 outfielders who have hardly been overworked of late.

Manchester United have also been in good form in recent weeks, with the Red Devils having beaten Watford 4-2 at Vicarage Road on Tuesday night.

"He has got to play in Mourinho style. So far, that's seen us win games, so that's good".
