A routine and comfortable win over their neighbours before the international break left Manchester City in second place and chasing down Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table.
Pep Guardiola will be hoping to build on that return to winning ways and see his side embark on another of their relentless runs as they look to retain the league title this term.
They face Everton on Sunday, with Rafael Benitez’s team back down in midtable after a five-game winless streak.
Injuries continue to hamper the manager’s rebuilding work and the Toffees have made a significant change in their medical department this week as they look to improve matters off the pitch.

What is the team news?
Ferran Torres is the only long-term injury concern for Man City, but Kevin de Bruyne is out after testing positive for Covid. Guardiola has also said Jack Grealish is unlikely to feature, but Aymeric Laporte is back from suspension and Phil Foden should be fit to play too.
Everton are without a host of players who would normally start, including the injured Dominic Calvert-Lewin, midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure and centre-back Yerry Mina. Mason Holgate is also suspended and central pair Tom Davies and Andre Gomes are also out.
