Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry accepts there is no hiding from the pressure of Monday's pivotal clash against Manchester United.

City will reclaim top spot in the Barclays Premier League from their arch-rivals with victory at the Etihad Stadium in possibly the most eagerly-anticipated Manchester derby ever.

City's hopes appeared over as they fell eight points behind earlier this month but, playing with nothing to lose, Roberto Mancini's men have since trimmed the deficit to three, and Barry told the club's website, www.mcfc.co.uk: "When the game is that big the pressure is on both sets of players and it's probably going to be down to who handles that best."
