Pep Guardiola says facing West Ham will not be easy

Man City midfielder David Silva a doubt for derby with Man Utd

David Moyes is yet to win any game since taking charge less than a month ago, but he has players that can make things hard for a City side that's suffered at home lately.

Meanwhile, Man City are unbeaten in their last eight Sunday Premier League games (W5 D3), since losing at Everton in January.

We've won our last 12 games and we are better - we can not deny that.

The all-time Premier League and top-flight record for consecutive wins (not just in a single season) is held by Arsenal; who recorded 14 successive victories in the Premier League back in between February-August 2002.

"That's why it's better to be calm and prepare as well as possible, because it's the same three points as against Manchester United".

Please don't say that word.

Kompany said: "I put myself in the position if I was the manager of West Ham, I suppose I would've seen the images against Southampton and Huddersfield, I would've seen what causes trouble and I would've trained extremely hard on those points for that game". I spoke well about the opponents and people said "Pep has false humility, he's a liar, he's saying something he doesn't believe". I think that's ridiculous.

"At the moment, he's not anxious about lack of quality because we have good players, but at the moment [the mental side] is the key factor". And that's what has happened here I think.

City have not only been winning with regularity this season but doing so in style. Some may be against that, but the opportunity to rotate the squad and rest players will come in the Champions League match on Wednesday, so it makes sense to pick the big boys in this one to hopefully secure a more comfortable victory.

"It doesn't count much for the title but it counts for the way we play - in the good moments we win comfortably, in the bad moments we keep going and keep our faith to try to do it", he said.
