Former Manchester United left back Quinton Fortune is the only South African to have played in the derby, and according to Transfermarkt, he made two appearances – in a 2-0 away win at the Etihad and a 4-2 win at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Yaya Toure is the most capped African in the fixture, having faced United 14 times since joining City in 2010. The Ivorian won seven derbies, drew two and lost five, but could again be omitted from Guardiola's squad on the weekend.

Togo's Emmanuel Adebayor featured in three derbies for City, but failed to win any of them, losing two and drawing one.  

Ivorian Wilfried Bony, who is now out on loan at Stoke City, is another City star who did not have much luck in the Manchester derby, drawing one and losing the other he played in.

Cameroon's Eric Djemba-Djemba (United), Zimbabwe's Benjani (City) and the late Marc-Vivien Foe (Man City) of Cameroon are other Africans who ran out in the clash between the Manchester giants.
