De Bruyne wishes Pogba could play in Manchester Derby

De Bruyne wishes Pogba could play in Manchester Derby

De Bruyne, who played an instrumental part in City's winning goal against West Ham on Sunday reckons this derby will not one to miss, with United looking to close the gap between the two Manchester clubs.

Pogba gave an interview to the BBC in the build-up to United's 3-1 victory at Arsenal on Saturday, in which he said he would like to see City suffer from the kind of fitness problems he believes have beset Jose Mourinho's side so far this season.

'To be honest I didn't know about this record and I hope we will be the first to end it'.

"But also, the deficiencies of Pogba is defensively and how easy it was for Arsenal every time they got the ball to go through this Manchester United team and [David] De Gea just showed again he's the best goalkeeper in the world".

City face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, but having already secured top spot in their group, there is little riding on the game. We never change. We try to do the things that we are good at.

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

Kevin De Bruyne has dismissed the idea that Paul Pogba's Manchester derby absence is karma for the Frenchman's controversial comments about City's key players suffering injuries.

Russian Federation midfielder Alan Dzagoev was unaware United are on the cusp of equalling a club record of 40 successive home games unbeaten but is focused on the task at hand. "But the teams have been playing closed, we have had difficulty finding the spaces there, because there are a lot of people in front of the box". I think it's going to be a spectacle. "We need to keep focused with whatever we are doing and keep busy with ourselves".
