Silva fit for Derby Clash - Guardiola

Man city boss, Pep Guardiola has declared David Silva fit ahead of Manchester derby clash coming up at Old Trafford this Sunday.

The Spanish International was left at home instead of travelling to Ukraine to take part in the club's 2-1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, on account of not being "fully fit".

United manager Jose Mourinho accused long-time rival Guardiola of mind games earlier this week, insisting he would not "lie" about the fitness of his players.

Mourinho faced a similar predicament in the build-up to United's 3-1 win over Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger claiming that Alexandre Lacazette was unfit, before fielding the Frenchman at the Emirates Stadium.

"Sterling has a lot of things to improve and that’s why he will have a long career. Silva is going to play," Pep said.
