Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola faces derby selection dilemma

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Manchester City can seal the league title on Saturday in what is traditionally their biggest fixture of the season, yet manager Pep Guardiola might still be tempted to field a weakened side against rivals Manchester United.

With a crucial Champions League clash against Liverpool to come next week, and a 3-0 deficit to overturn, the Catalan coach faces a dilemma.

Having watched their rivals Manchester United dominate English football for the majority of the 1990's and the new millennium, City fans are relishing their opportunity to get one over their bitter foes on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium.

The task is a simple one -- beat United and City will seal the fastest-ever Premier League title in front of their own fans, forcing United to look on with envy.

However, what happened at Anfield on Wednesday would have given the Catalan coach food for thought. Liverpool blew City away in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie with a blistering display of attacking football.
