It is a massive clash at the top of the table as United look to become the first side this season to beat City.

Taking over Raheem Sterling's role as City's last-gasp match-winner, Silva prodded home a volley from Kevin De Bruyne's cross in the 83rd minute to end the stubborn resistance of West Ham at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Like many optimistic United fans, Shearer has also noticed that City have had to work hard for their last three victories against Huddersfield, Southampton, and West Ham.

He told the club's official website: "We are going to find our best moment very soon". The Manchester Derby, just couldn't be set up any better, could it. "He played really well, the test now is can he do it against Chelsea next week and then against Arsenal". He brought in two strikers and two wingers.

United were gifted two early goals by Arsenal in what was one of the most entertaining matches of the season so far at the Emirates. Please fill out the attached form below with the 11 players you want to see starting against Shakhtar, and which formation you think Pep should choose.

The big German's ability to pass the ball like a midfielder and race off his line to disrupt attacks is great, however, it's nothing more than a bonus.

Yet despite this commanding run of results and an eight point buffer on closest contenders Manchester United, Guardiola knows that City still can not avoid a slip up over the holiday period. City have won 13 leagues games in a row and are unbeaten in all competitions this campaign.

Perhaps, his critics should have taken the time to check his CV, which includes a league title with Monaco and a Champions League semi-final with Lyon.

"Right now all of our attention is on the game against CSKA Moscow - we would be making a big mistake otherwise".

Funnily enough Leicester are now above The Saints in the table, and the issues with finishing that cost Puel during his time there still remain.

Pogba was dismissed in the 74th minute of Saturday's 3-1 victory for his challenge on Gunners defender Hector Bellerin.

The 25-year-old Belgian was simply unplayable at times against the Magpies, and his superb understanding with Alvaro Morata seems to get better every week. It played to the adage that a team operating at less than full pelt is liable to the sucker punch against anyone; Aaron Cresswell's cross was pinpoint and the thumping header that met it ensured that those leering through the glass bore witness to an entirely different colour of wounded beast on the walk back in.

Redknapp added that Rice's performance for West Ham against City reminded him of the emergence of a former England captain and had a word of advice for the youngster. One thing is for sure, England will have some job on their hands keeping him quite in Russian Federation next summer.
