This season has been a disappointing one for the Sky Blues, with Pep Guardiola arriving and creating giant expectations that he has not been able to match. City will finish the season without a trophy, and their biggest prize this season will be a place in the Top-4 that will guarantee City a spot in the Champions League next season, and that is not enough for a team of such investment and expectations.
But this is what Pep is left with, and winning the Manchester Derby will almost secure that top-four finish. Three points will put City in third place above Liverpool, and with a game in hand on the Reds. United have the Europa League title to chase, but they can still finish in the Top-4 and José Mourinho will not give up until the table forces him to.
This Derby promises to be a very entertaining one, and win will be vital for both teams. PLEASE do not miss it.
