Boost for City ahead of Manchester derby

BY SAMSON MBII,9TH DEC 2017-Manchester City have been handed a huge boost ahead of derby with manager Pep Guardiola confirming David Silva is fit to play against Manchester United.

Guardiola had initially said the playmaker was a doubt for the derby but the midfielder will be available. The former Barcelona boss on Tuesday said that Silva felt “uncomfortable” after the game against West Ham United last weekend, in which the Spaniard scored 83rd minute winner.

The 31 year old did not travel with the City squad to Ukraine for their final Champions League group-stage match with Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday, but Guardiola says he has recovered and will feature at Old Trafford on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

City  are eight points above their neighbours and are yet to lose a league game this season but Guardiola says that his team will need to be at their best.
