Owen Hargreaves believes that Raheem Sterling will have a “good impact” on the Manchester derby if Pep Guardiola makes the decision to start him.

Sterling scored in Manchester City’s 4-1 win over Club Brugge in their Champions League group stage match on Wednesday night.

As a result, Hargreaves believes the 26-year-old deserves a chance to start the Premier League clash between Manchester City and United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Speaking after Manchester City’s Champions League clash on Wednesday night, Hargreaves said: “Raheem Sterling could have a good impact on Saturday if he was a starter for the Manchester derby.”

Hargreaves also reflected on how Sterling must feel right now and said it was nice to see Phil Foden celebrate with his teammate after his third goal.

He said: ‘It was really nice for Phil Foden to come and celebrate with Sterling. As a player, you know how difficult it can be as an attacking player.

Pep always says that you need numbers and that if you score you will stay in the team. So since Foden and Jesus are scoring all the time, they stay on the team. ‘

When asked who would be the best option for City before their clash with Manchester United on Saturday, Joleon Lescott said that every play had “given them a chance to start.”

The BT expert said: ‘I don’t think there are bad options. Everyone has been given a chance to start the weekend, but it would be nice to pick Sterling. However, no one is going to be left, I think they are being rotated.

“The fact that you don’t play the derby will be disappointing, but if you play PSG in the Champions League it will be great. I don’t think there is a bad game to play. ”

Lescott went on to give Manchester City credit for having a complete squad, saying: ‘Their two best players (Dias and De Bruyne) didn’t even start today.

“I don’t think anyone in the major league or even the champions league can compete with his depth.”
