Man City ace De Bruyne: I am a little outside the emotion of a derby

Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is not getting caught up in the emotion of the upcoming Manchester derby.

City and Manchester United, under new managers of Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho respectively, will face each other for the first time this season at Old Trafford on Saturday.

De Bruyne told Sky Sports: "A derby for me is like everywhere else.

"People in Manchester will speak about their derby, in London they will say theirs is bigger. You always try and win it for the fans, and let's hope we play a good game.

"Some people feed off the emotion of a derby, I am a little bit outside of it. I prefer to play in front of a large crowd but it helps for a few people."
