WATCH: Ederson error helps Shakhtar Donetsk defeat Manchester City

Manchester City star David Silva is a doubt for Sunday's (10 December) derby clash against Manchester United, Pep Guardiola has confirmed.

Silva converted Kevin de Bruyne's brilliant pass from close range in the 83rd minute as City maintained their blistering form this season and won their 13th successive EPL game.

He started the last Champions League game against Feyenoord at the Etihad Stadium and will be pushing for a recall to the starting line-up against Shakhtar.

This isn't a dead rubber by any means but Man City will be wary of the busy time they'll surely have on Sunday against Man Utd and don't have as much to play for as Shakhtar.

Aguero stepped up to tuck home the spot-kick but time was almost up and there could be no late fightback.

But even that still isn't enough to make them firm favourites for when their rivals visit Old Trafford on Sunday.

"Our opponents have all these issues".

The midfielder has featured little this season but has been impressed by the performances of his team-mates.

For players like me and Vinnie (Kompany), the older players, and we see the younger players like Sane and Sterling coming in. we play with more confidence.

A win will see City break a Premier League record for most consecutive wins while at the same time shatter United's unbeaten record at home - which will stretch to 40 in all competitions if they avoid a loss to CSKA Moscow on Tuesday [5 December] night.

John Stones and Benjamin Mendy are both injured but youngsters Phil Foden, Brahim Diaz, Tosin Adarabioyo and goalkeeper Danny Grimshaw have been included.

'I have had similar deciders in my career but this is the first time I have had such a game in the Champions League'.

Silva, who last month signed a one-year contract extension until 2020, has been sensational in that run, scoring twice and laying on eight assists as Guardiola's side have set about dismantling Premier League opposition at will.

"I think teams respect us".

United fell behind late in the first half when Vitinho's shot from Mario Fernandes's cut-back struck team-mate Alan Dzagoev on its way into the net.

It's reported that the reason United failed to sign him in the last transfer window was because Pochettino didn't want to offload two full-backs in one window and Kyle Walker had already joined City.
