Pep Guardiola expects a repeat gameplan from Manchester United this week.
United produced an exhilarating display of counter-attacking football to beat Guardiola’s Manchester City 2-1 in last month’s derby at the Etihad Stadium.
The rival sides meet again in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Old Trafford on Tuesday and City boss Guardiola feels he knows what to expect.
Guardiola said: “It will be quite similar. Of course at Old Trafford it will be quite different to here, but they are a team that are built to run.
“When they can run they are one of the best teams, and not just in England, I would say, because of the pace they have – (Daniel) James, (Mason) Greenwood, (Anthony) Martial, (Marcus) Rashford and (Jesse) Lingard.
“I have the feeling they are going to run, one or two or three times, or as many times as possible, and we have to reduce the mistakes in the build-up. We have to be prepared for that but we have to do our game.”
