Bernardo Silva expects City to go for the jugular on Saturday afternoon and backed them to overcome their hosts.

The midfielder believes that City can inflict similar damage on Liverpool a fortnight ago, although his coach, Pep Guardiola, had refuted that idea in a short press conference.

“We have already scored so many goals this season,” Silva said. ‘We know that when we are focused and we do it well, we are a team that has the ability to score four or five goals per game.

‘Of course, that doesn’t happen in every game. We are going to try to score as many goals as we can at Old Trafford, knowing that we are playing against a very good team, one of the main contenders ”.

Guardiola had avoided making proclamations before the derby, but Silva insisted that City should walk away with the victory given the state of the title race.

“Both teams need to win, nobody wants to score points,” he added. “We are five points behind Chelsea, United are eight points behind.

“I always have the feeling that we play better away than at home against them. I don’t know if it’s just in my head, but I always think that most of the games we’ve won were at Old Trafford. With players like Cavani and Ronaldo: when they have chances, they are lethal. They don’t need a lot of space to write down.

“The only way to prevent them from creating chances is with the ball, is to have the ball as much as we can and try to get them in the last third to try to avoid counterattacks as much as possible.” Meanwhile, Guardiola told his players to be wary of ‘Fergie Time’ after a collection of late rallies from the Solskjaer team so far this season.

“I’m pretty sure they will push man to man up front and then defend more deeply,” he said. I’m pretty sure they’ll attack the canals and use Bruno Fernandes to light something up.

“The last minutes of the first half and the second half are ready, I’m pretty sure they will call Sir Alex Ferguson to install Fergie Time.”
