Gary Neville has given the Manchester derby debate even more spice by suggesting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who needs to rest players.

"Sunday after Everton is winning most of the games," Neville said on Sky Sports Monday Night Football.

When co-pundit Jamie Carragher laid his head in his hands, Neville added, "These are not you who go into the city game and think that United may lose the game, they have to win.

Neville believes City will retain the title, while Carragher believes his old club raises their first title in 29 years.

They both say that the two sides will lose points with two draws against the rest of the season.
