Training: Counting down to United!

City stepped up preparations at the CFA today ahead of Sunday’s eagerly anticipated 185th Manchester derby where Pep Guardiola’s squad will be striving to create a new Club record.

We will lock horns with second-placed United seeking to record what would be a 22nd consecutive win – and a 29th game unbeaten in all competitions which would establish a new all-time Club record.

It's been a spell-binding run of results, with our last defeat coming in late November.

We currently sit 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and are also in the hunt for silverware in all three Cup competitions.


As well as the small matter of Manchester bragging rights, it’s also first vs second at the weekend with United going well under the stewardship of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and having not lost away from home for 21 games.

All told, it promises to be an occasion to savour.
