Cape Town -  Manchester City's Serbian defender Aleksandar Kolarov has opened the mind games ahead of Saturday's Manchester derby.

The 28-year-old defender has labelled his side "superior" to that of neighbours Manchester United according to the Daily Express.

"It is a great game to watch or play in - I think every player in the world would like to play this game." said Kolarov

"United has a great history but in the last five or six years, I think we have been superior to them.

"It will be a great game to play."

City head into Sunday's derby on the back of a loss against West Ham United and anything but three points against their arch-rivals will be a hammer blow to their chances of retaining their English Premiership title.

The Citizens have gained the upper hand in this fixture in recent time and completed a league "double" over their neighbours last season.

Sunday's derby at the Etihad kicks off at 15:30.
