They lead Manchester United by eight points in the league and play away at Old Trafford on Sunday. It is a big game, the first against second, so everybody will be up for it. "It is phenomenal but obviously we want to win in the end".

The two City stars were influential in City's 13th consecutive Premier League victory in the 2-1 triumph over West Ham, which saw De Bruyne assist Silva's 83rd minute victor to help open up an eight point advantage at the top of the Premier League.

City were the last team to win at Old Trafford, in September past year, since when United have been unbeaten in 39 games at home in all competitions.

Angelo Ogbonna put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time with a firm header from a corner, further underlining a growing belief that City side can be exposed at set-pieces.

"If we lost two out of three and they win everything, they are there. I think the character has shown in the last game".

City face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, but having already secured top spot in their group, there is little riding on the game.
