Manchester City wing back Joao Cancelo has expressed confident his side can win the Manchester derby on Sunday.
City play United with a firm grip on the Premier League title, as they hold a 14 point lead over the second placed Red Devils.
Nevertheless, City will want to clinch the derby to showcase the gap in quality between the two neighboring teams.
“The moment we lose the ball, we react very fast,” Cancelo told the club’s website.
“Sometimes when I watch our videos, I can see the moment one of us loses possession, within seconds we have lots of players behind the ball. I believe that is the secret for a team’s success. We are a very integrated team and that has been visible on the pitch.
“United is a team that likes to counterattack. They have very talented and fast players upfront and it is vital that we stop their attacks, which is their strength.
“By doing that, we know we are closer to winning this game. In fact, not only this game but against every team.
“I believe this is the route we must follow, that we can continue this approach and we can bring a lot of success to our home this season.”
