Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes that Old Trafford has lost its fear factor and that the Theatre of Dreams is no longer daunting like before.

Guardiola talked about the Manchester United Stadium during his pre-match press thoughts on Tuesday ahead of the big Manchester Derby clash between Manchester City and Manchester United.

The Red Devils host title chasers Manchester City at the Theatre of Dreams on Wednesday night in a mammoth game that could decide the destination of the Premier League title.

Ahead of the latest derby, Manchester City have won five of their last seven visits to Old Trafford.

In addition, Manchester City have won nine league games in a row and a win for the Citizens in their Manchester Derby clash with Manchester United will make it ten successive victories in the Premier League.

Manchester City need to secure a sixth win from eight games at Old Trafford to usurp title challengers Liverpool at the top of the table.

Victory will take the Citizens one point clear of Liverpool with three games left to play before the end of the season.

Liverpool had gone to the Premier League summit at the weekend following their away win at Cardiff City.

The Reds won 2-0 with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner (penalty).
