Pep Guardiola makes promise to Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri by SMS

Pep Guardiola has warned teams who plan on sitting back that he could unleash four strikers

Guardiola took a full-strength squad to Kharkiv - barring the suspended Kevin De Bruyne and the slightly injured David Silva - so preparations for the derby can run as smoothly as possible, and before flying back to Manchester on Thursday the team will train together and be shown video analysis of their next opponents. He's a massive player.

City's late win over West Ham reopened an eight-point advantage over second-place United in the Premier League title race and extended their winning run to 13 games - equalling records previously set by Chelsea and Arsenal.

"We started really well but we lost our patience".

Guardiola has said repeatedly his side would suffer a defeat sooner or later but, in a way, it was something he was looking forward to because he wanted to see how his players would react.

Gabriel Jesus also spoke on a next weekend's derby match against United, which he expects to be different: "It will be a good game, a great game, great players, great players". We had two strikers in the second half and that helped, it was a big lesson for me.

"No, we have no injuries", he said.

However, according to Sky Italia the Catalan has sent an SMS message to Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri, promising him that City will give their "maximum effort" to beat Shakhtar and make it six wins out of six in Group F.

And, speaking at a pre-match media conference in Ukraine, Toure - who also worked with Guardiola at Barcelona - said: "Our team is practising the best football in Europe but we want to play against the best teams to see where we are".

"We've worked a bit on it".

City have been in irresistible form this season but it appears that teams may have identified a potential Achilles heel in their defence at set pieces.

Against an imposing United lineup that includes Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, the leaders could have their work cut out next week against master-tactician Jose Mourinho. "I can promise you we are going to try to win this game". "We believe in what we can do", he added.

I leave for you that one. "If it was hard, no; if it was mud, no - the pitch is absolutely handsome but I think they were a bit too much".
