Gary Neville has warned Manchester City that Manchester United have form when it comes to ending records at Old Trafford.

The Premier League leaders recorded their 12th successive top-flight win at The Etihad on Wednesday night after Raheem Sterling’s added-time winner in a 2-1 win over Southampton.

Pep Guardiola’s men have collected 40 points from their opening 14 games and the Citizens are eight points clear of their closest challengers Manchester United.

The Citizens could eclipse Arsenal and Chelsea’s record of 13 straight victories if the Eastlands outfit beat West Ham at The Etihad and their derby rivals at Old Trafford on 12 December.

Manchester United will make the trip to Arsenal in their next Premier League game at The Emirates before hosting Guardiola’s side at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s men famously ended the Gunners’ 49-game unbeaten run in 2004 with a 2-1 win over the north London side at the Theatre of Dreams.

The retired defender Neville was part of the Manchester United side that stopped Arsenal’s Invincibles and is optimistic the Red Devils can do the same on Sunday 12 December.

“Old Trafford is a ground where runs can come to end, as Arsenal’s Invincibles’ run did. The season is really coming to a head and it is a big two or three weeks. United have to be closer to City than they are now when we head into Christmas,” Neville told Sky Sports.

Manchester United have won their last three Premier League games thanks to victories over Newcastle United, Brighton and Watford.
