James Milner says Manchester City are in confident mood ahead of their derby clash with Manchester United next weekend.
City will go into the game at Old Trafford just five points adrift of the league leaders.
And Milner admits that they are confident of grabbing victory on Saturday - a game you can see live on Sky Sports HD2.
"It's obviously a massive game. It's one everyone wants to win. It will be a tough game and it's up to us to go there, perform and try and get a result," he said.
"We are confident and we have world-class players all the way through the side. We have younger players and older players and it's a good mix here.
"They are a top team, they have the experience of winning titles. They are looking to do that again and it's up to us to go and put a spanner in the works.
"We know we can keep improving and we will do that. We work hard in training and we have great scope to go on and become even better. I think that's the main thing, to move forward as a team."
