Manchester United host neighbours Manchester City at Old Trafford and Louis van Gaal is hoping to give the United fans a victory to celebrate.

The 20 time champions are in third position in the Premier League table a point above Pellegrini's City who have won only four in ten league matches.

However, when Van Gaal was asked what it would mean to him to give the fans a victory this weekend and possibly finish above Manchester City this season, the Dutch boss told MUTV: "I dream of it.

"That is not a problem, every player shall dream of victory. I have been thinking with my staff and my players already for many days about how we have to beat Manchester City. You are always [thinking] in that process of how to beat your next opponent.

"You want to win because it is a big step in the table. When you win, third place is reachable and months ago nobody was thinking we could do it - besides me, of course! Third position in the table is also good because you have certainly qualified for the Champions League and we would do better than the goal we set in pre-season."

The former Barcelona coach also gave his say on how big and important the derby is in Manchester.

"When you are walking the streets of Manchester everybody is talking about the derby and also the players – the English players and also the Spanish players. They understand the meaning of a Manchester United victory over Manchester City. They know and I know it, so it’s very important.”
