Pep Guardiola hopes Sunday's Manchester Derby will prove an entertaining affair - the 'perfect advert for English football.'

City host United at the Etihad Stadium in the 177th competitive encounter, looking to extend our lead atop the Premier League table.

The Blues are yet to beat the Reds on home soil under Pep Guardiola's leadership and with both sides heading into the clash in strong form, this weekend's game is eagerly-awaited.

"United are arriving in a good moment," Guardiola declared. "Winning in Turin and the way they won - they concede few.

"We arrive in a good run too. Our game is fluid, comfortable.

"Hopefully, it will be a good derby and everyone will enjoy watching the game, and it will be the perfect advert for English football."
