Having starred in derby matches in Spain, Italy, Holland and France, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is keen to add to his CV the Manchester version, with the Manchester United striker believing such fixtures help to bring the best out of him.
"I have played in many derby games," Ibrahimovic told manutd.com. "I have played in all of them - the only one I missed was this one.
"For me, the big games are the ones that trigger you. They're the games everyone speaks about."
The striker has three goals in as many Premier League matches and is part of a United squad which is fully fit, Jose Mourinho confirmed.
Manchester City could hand a debut to Claudio Bravo, with Pep Guardiola comfortable the goalkeeper signed from Barcelona can handle the derby pressure.
"Bravo is fit and ready - he’s 32, 33 years old - he has experience," Guardiola told mancity.com. "No problem with that. He has to save the goals."
