The Manchester Derby is upon us, and the stars of the show have begun to talk about it. And a City star is defiant.

David Silva spoke in an interview to Spanish radio about Sunday's Premier League match against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at Old Trafford, the first big test for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City this season.

Guardiola's City is already playing like a Pep Team, and the offense is slowly evolving into a beautifully run machine that will try to dictate the play wherever it plays, including Old Trafford. That's what Silva guaranteed in his interview: City will not be satisfied with only a point.

“We’ve started the season very well and it should be a great game. But we won’t be playing for a draw. We will go out to win the match. It’s a ground where in the last few years things have gone okay for us. We know they are a very difficult rival - but we won’t settle for a draw.”

Of course, circumstances dictate results and City might have to rescue a point and be happy at the end of the game. But they will play like a team that wants to win, that's for sure.
