Manchester City could go 11 points clear at the top of the Premier league table with victory over archrivals and second placed Manchester United when the two lock horns at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola and his team have absolutely taken the league by storm this season, as they are the only unbeaten team in this season’s Premier League.

They head to Old Trafford on the back of a run of consecutive victories spanning 13 matches (a joint Premier league record), but former Liverpool and Man United striker Michael Owen is of the opinion that even with victory over Man United, the Premier League title race will still be very much on.

“I think City were quite a few points ahead last season and didn’t go on to win it and actually Chelsea went on to win it at an absolute breeze, so definitely nothing is going to be decided so soon”, Owen said. “I think it will be a huge game but I don’t think it will be a decider so soon in the season. via

Owen who has experienced the Manchester derby as a player when he grabbed a 96th minute winner as United triumphed 4-3 in a memorable clash at Old Trafford in September 2009, believes even though City are in brilliant form it is still a very long season and things can change at any point in time especially considering the quality of the chasing pack.
