The Man City star clearly does not believe in karma

We cannot wait for the Manchester derby here at Dream Team.

There are electrifying duels all over the field.

Sergio Aguero v Phil Jones, Kyle Walker v Antonio Valencia, Marcus Rashford v Vincent Kompany and Paul Pogba v Kevin De Bruyne…

Oh wait, naughty Pogba picked up a red card against Arsenal on Saturday and has got himself banned for undoubtedly the biggest game of the season.

If City win they will open up an almost unassailable 11-point lead in the race for the Premier League.

But, Jose could turn the tide on the sky blue waves with a victory leaving just a five-point gap between the top two.

Without Pogba that task just got a whole lot harder.

Some people are saying it is a case of karma after the Frenchman fired some early shots before last weekend’s games.

In an interview with the BBC, Pogba said he hoped the City would get injuries to their ‘very important players’.

Well as it would turn out, the Red Devils are in fact the team missing their best player.

Kevin De Bruyne wasn’t having any of it when he was asked about Pogba’s comments.

According to reports, his reply to whether Pogba’s ban was karma was straight fire.

“I don’t believe that shit,” the Ginger Prince said.

“I’m a straightforward guy. If someone believes it is karma then OK. Everyone has their right to their opinion.

“I don’t want anyone to get injured. It’s a competition, you want to play against the best.”

It’s a lot easier to say that when you’ve scored 46 goals in 15 games and have all your players fit for the biggest game of the season.

Watch out for those tackles on Sunday, Kevin.
