Manchester City can seal the Premier League title with a victory on Saturday - but just as worrying for United is their prime asset being offered to their city rivals.

A victory in Saturday's clash against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United would see his side claim the title with six games remaining.

Manchester City has collected compliments and plaudits nearly on a weekly basis this season and rightly so, though the premature if inevitable claims about Pep Guardiola's team being the best English side of all-time took a severe dent when Liverpool thrashed - not too strong a word - the visitors 3-0 at Anfield on Wednesday.

"Even if there was more at stake, after having been frustrated by Mourinho's approach, demeanour, behaviour, lies, nonsense and bad man management, I actually think that in this instance he is probably right to play a very defensive space limiting style against City".

"You have to go into it like any other game", United midfielder Jesse Lingard said.

In normal circumstances, winning a derby to secure the league title would be the undoubted focus, but Guardiola acknowledges that he has to have one eye on the second leg of their European quarter-final against Liverpool three days later.

But have United the ability to press and harry City the way Liverpool did?

"These are the games you play the whole season for. Today, before the game, I will not", Guardiola said to reporters, initially unwilling to discuss the matter.

"We defend the badge, the club the best way possible".

United have lost eight of the last 13 league Manchester derbies, as many as in the previous 49 encounters.

Raiola is also agent to Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich, who criticised Pep in his autobiography, claiming he 'bought a Ferrari but drove it like a Fiat.' It was Pep's alleged treatment of Ibrahimovic that led to a falling out between Pep and Raiola.

Former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss Guardiola won his first English silverware in February when City trounced Arsenal in the League Cup final.

Guardiola must surely put all his eggs in his Champions League basket in the knowledge City can wrap up the title at a later date - but he hasn't rotated too much this season and may continue with his stars here. "So my objective for tomorrow is to try to have points that can help us to finish second".

And the former Arsenal forward believes Mourinho will "turn up and play for 0-0" - because United can not match Liverpool's attacking intent.
