Kasper Schmeichel accepts he may be forced to stand aside should Manchester City buy a new goalkeeper before Friday's transfer deadline.
"I am still young and have a lot to learn.
"I have a lot of respect for Eriksson. He is a great manager.
"I know City want to sign another goalkeeper with experience. It is the manager's decision but as long as he picks me I will do my very best."
As for last week's stunning win over United, he added: "It was a fantastic experience and a strange feeling as I always supported United in my early years because of my dad.
"But now I'm playing for City and this is where my loyalty is."
