Pep Guardiola, José Mourinho, Manchester City, Manchester United. Etihad Stadium. If City win the Manchester Derby, they’ll clinch the Premier League title. If they don’t win, they’ll have to wait another week. So they should win on Saturday to laugh at United, celebrate the title and have a lot of confidence ahead of the Liverpool second leg. Dude, this will be fun!


Man City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Bernardo, Jesus, Sterling

Man United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young; Pogba, Matic; Alexis, Lingard, Rashford; Lukaku


I’m feeling really good about this game, and we’ll shatter Mourinho’s bus windows with a lot of goals: 3-0 to the champions.
