Manchester United Throw Shade At Manchester City's Lack Of Support Ahead Of Derby
| Last updated
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville just summed up how every Manchester United fan is feeling about this afternoon's Manchester derby, saying on instagram: "don't lose for f**ks sake'.
If the likes of Leroy Sane and David Silva pick up all three points today, Pep Guardiola's side could win the Premier League title in the most brutal way possible and it's fair to say that plenty of United fans will be bricking it ahead of the 17:30 kick-off.

That being said, Manchester United's Instagram page have thrown shade at Manchester City ahead of kick-off, taunting that they might be able to fill up all those empty seats this time around.
City are often criticised for their lack of support at the Etihad, and United are clearly playing some mind games.

With three huge games in less than a week, Pep Guardiola was expected to rotate his squad for games against Liverpool and Manchester United - and he has done exactly that.
Guardiola hinted at making use of the squad at his disposal in his post-Everton press conference, saying:
"Of course I want to win against United at home but we have three days before we have Liverpool, after we have three days before United and after we have three days before the second leg so few recovery days.
"You have to use all the squad but that doesn't mean the guys who play are not going to prepare to win. If we are in the position we are now in the Premier League it is because everyone has made his own contribution. That is going to happen. But I am sorry, as a manager, now Liverpool will occupy all my head."
Guardiola has suggested it in public but he's confirmed it in private: during a team meeting yesterday he told key players he's ready to rest them against United https://t.co/60JusX3mMq
