The Manchester City footballer knows the Red Devils’ supporters don’t want Liverpool to lift the Premier League title, but they don’t want to lose against City either.

Manchester City and Manchester United are set to play tomorrow night in the Manchester Derby, a game that might decide the faith of the future English Premier League champion.

If the Citizens lose, the might not have a chance to reach Liverpool, who are currently in the first position of the table, two points ahead.

But if they win, they will surely have their hopes boosted.

“United fans are in a difficult situation obviously,” Manchester City’s Kyle Walker told The Telegraph.

“When I’m out and about or walking my dogs, United fans are coming up to me saying, ‘We’d rather City win the league than Liverpool’.”

“It’s strange to hear but I can assure you the United players aren’t going to leave a red carpet and say, ‘Go on City, score past us’,” he added.

“They’re going to make it difficult because it’s a game of football and they’re fighting for the top-four as well so they need the points.”

He explained: “Obviously we could have won it against them last season and they scored a couple of good goals and got the victory.”

“That was probably what every United fan wanted with City not winning the title at the Etihad against United.”

“We don’t owe them one because we won against them [3-1] earlier in the season but it’s one for the fans and it’s one for us to get closer to being the Premier League champions,” he concluded.
