Kevin de Bruyne says 20 wins are nothing without trophies

City go into Sunday's derby with an extensive lead over United thanks to David Silva's 83rd-minute victor in the 2-1 victory over West Ham United.

Pep Guardiola will not allow his Manchester City players to rest on their laurels tomorrow night when they face Shakhtar Donetsk, despite having already won the group and qualified.

Former City defender Mills says the result of the game is tough to call, but that if the visitors leave with all three points then it will make them virtually "uncatchable" both in terms of points and mentality.

Manchester City may be the club showing the best football in Europe's top leagues right now, but it doesn't mean it's the easy life.

De Bruyne, however, rejected the notion of karma, which is a spiritual principle of cause and effect, part of religions including Hindusim, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Taoism.

It was the least City deserved for their second-half dominance but it left the Hammers frustrated after a hard-working display. Did Man City put €100m offer to Messi?

Leaders City are eight points clear of second-placed United ahead of their first meeting this season at Old Trafford and a win would open up an 11-point advantage at the top.

"We'll play the same there", said de Bruyne.

The Serbian worldwide sat out Tuesday night's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow which secured United's place in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages, but, speaking in his post-match press conference, the boss explained that Matic is "still injured but will play for sure".

Silva scored City's victor against West Ham on Sunday. I am so pleased to see them playing that well.

And their mutual respect could lead to Sarri being handed a favour by Pep, with Napoli desperately needing City to win to have any chance of advancing to the next stage of the Champions League.

The Hammers are still awaiting their first win under new manager David Moyes.

"David Silva has a little problem - I don't know whether he will recover for Sunday", Guardiola said.
