Man Utd vs Man City: No more Old Trafford fear – Guardiola

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has said they are no longer scared of going to Old Trafford, ahead of Wednesday’s Derby showdown.

Guardiola takes champions, City across to Manchester, needing a win to go back above title rivals Liverpool at the top of the table.

City have won five and drawn one of their last seven visits to Old Trafford in the Premier League.

And Guardiola, while speaking to the media on Tuesday, claimed that the ground has lost its fear factor for the Blues, who did not win there in the league for 34 years between 1974 and 1988.

“The reason why is the fact this club in the last decade grew a lot and it’s not scary to go there.

“Before it was maybe more difficult. But the players Manchester City had in the last decade have made this game a little bit more equal.

“The only question is the Premier League, winning the title.

“In the three seasons since I’m here, we did better than them but here it’s about winning the title, not beating United,” Guardiola said.
