Pep Guardiola could have a fully fit squad to pick from as he prepares his Manchester City side to face Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League derby.
With Nathan Ake due to be back in training this week, City are close to having a full complement of players available for the first time this season. That would give Guardiola a huge boost as he looks to guide the Blues to a 22nd straight victory that would move them 17 points clear of United in the Premier League.
However, United are 21 away games unbeaten in the league, and have done well at stopping opponents in big games this season – even if they have been unadventurous themselves.
Guardiola will know how tricky a test this game will be, and is not expected to entertain any talk of the title, despite moving another step closer after the midweek results sent them a further two points clear of their rivals.
