He added: "Obviously it's more hard when the other team has 11 behind the ball, it takes more time, but the late goals are evidence of them getting exhausted with the way that we play".

Gale feels City pose too strong a threat for United to press and claims Guardiola's men could "pierce them apart".

City are in dominant form and look nearly unstoppable as they aim to extend their 20-game winning streak across all competitions along with their eight-point lead.

Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has crowned his side the best in Europe on current form, citing their footballing style as second to none so far this season.

He said: "Maybe (it is) good for me to get a little bit of rest and prepare myself for Sunday". Given the amount of times they have come up with late winners recently, you would have to say the omens are good.

The Hammers are still awaiting their first win under new manager David Moyes. "We are going to need him as well for the derby".
