Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has thrown shade at rivals Manchester United ahead of their clash on Wednesday.
Speaking at a pre-match conference, he said: “It’s important that the club is structured well, like here, but I won’t comment on what happens at United.
“This club in the last decade grew a lot, it’s not scary anymore to go to Old Trafford but we have to play at our best.”
Stretching back to the Sky Blues’ sensational 6-1 win over United at Old Trafford in 2011, they’ve won five and drawn one of their last seven Premier League visits there.
He said of their recent impressive record at Old Trafford: “I don’t make theories about what happened in the past. This club grew a lot in the last decade. The game is more equal that it was before.”
City’s task will be made slightly harder by the absence of key midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who is out with an injury.
“I don’t know. It’s a muscular problem we will see in next days how he will do but tomorrow no,” Pep said.
