Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini is expecting a tough battle and hopes to overun Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany on Sunday.

Fellaini was on the losing side when the two teams met earlier this season, however form would suggest United have enough to overcome their bitter rivals at the weekend.

Five successive Premier League victories have propelled United into third position, just a point behind Arsenal in second.

Louis van Gaal recently said the Belgian international could not be dropped from his starting 11, and is likely to be deployed against compatriot Kompany.

Fellaini discussed the battle with Kompany. He said: ?He?s is a tough player and it?s certainly a hard battle when we play against each other.

?It will be a good challenge but to win the game is the most important thing.?

The former Everton player continued to discuss the significance of the clash ? describing it as a ?massive game.?

?It?s a derby, so it will be intense for the players and the supporters. We want to play in the Champions League next season so we have to win in front of our supporters. We have to do everything to win

?It?s a massive game.?
