Arsenal boss Wenger: Man City v Man Utd? No preference…

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is unsure who he wants to see win Thursday night's Manchester derby.

Fourth-placed Man City host fifth-placed Man United at the Etihad Stadium a day after the Gunners defeated Leicester City 1-0 to move within four points of the Champions League places.

Wenger's Gunners are involved in a derby of their own against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday knowing that a defeat will essentially end their top-four chase as well as give Spurs a higher finish than their North London rivals for the first time since 1995.

Asked who he wants to win out of Jose Mourinho's Red Devils and Pep Guardiola's City, Wenger told Sky Sports: "No preference really, because compared to us maybe a draw is not a bad result, so let's see what happens.

"We don't have to look too much at the others, we just have to look at ourselves and try to win our games, and hope the results go for us in the end."
