The Belgian will be out for a month with a calf injury suffered against Dynamo Kiev in midweek.City reached the Champions League quarter-finals where they will face Paris Saint-Germain, but they have fallen off the pace in the Premier League title race and could even be facing a battle to cling onto a top-four place. They trail leaders Leicester by 12 points and are also below Tottenham and Arsenal in the race for second and third. They could even be fifth by the time they kick off against United. Louis van Gaal takes on Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad Stadium Arch-rivals Manchester United are one of the sides hoping to close the gap, and that has placed extra importance on the derby.United have themselves endured a difficult campaign, and suffered the indignity of a Europa League exit at the hands of Liverpool on Thursday. Team news Vincent Kompany will be out for a month with a calf injury As well as the absence of Kompany, fellow central defender Nicolas Otamendi (dead leg) could also be doubtful this weekend.Midfielders Kevin De Bruyne (knee), Fabian Delph (Achilles) and Samir Nasri (thigh) are close to a return and could see some friendly action during the forthcoming international break.

The last City manager to win four Manchester derbies in the league was Joe Mercer in 1970 (won five in total).Mersons predictions Manuel Pellegrini shares his thoughts on their tough draw against PSG in the last eight of the Champions League Manchester City have to win this game! Its all becoming very tight in the race for the top four and Manuel Pellegrinis men are really struggling at the moment. The injuries to Vincent Kompany and Nicolas Otamendi are a big blow, however, I see home advantage being key in this game. Manchester United also have injury problems and a tough game against Liverpool wont help their chances. I see City just edging this one 2-1.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bets odds: 15/2)BettingCity are odds-on with Sky Bet to win the Manchester derby with United 16/5.
