The former Charlton Athletic defender was named as the man of the match, after the two sides settled for a point following their 0-0 draw at Anfield in Saturday's Premier League clash. Guardiola's men remain unbeaten this term and have a two point cushion over their Manchester rivals at the top of the table.
City and United will be on a lot of accumulators this weekend, but what are the other big matches to look out for in the Premier League?
While he continues to impress personally, Gomez must be hoping his side's fortunes will turn soon, after Liverpool went another game without picking up all three points.
The 26-year-old has developed into one of the finest goalkeepers in the world since his arrival at Manchester United from Atletico Madrid back in 2011. You have to go back to Everton in 1894 for the last English team to have scored so many top-flight league goals by this stage of the season.
While Liverpool have issues, all is not quite as it should be at Tottenham - who are offered at about evens to beat the Reds - either.
Throw in Sterling, Sane, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne and it might be the most outrageous group of attacking players ever assembled by one team in Premier League history. Bernardo Silva, one of the stars of the French league last season, is having to settle for second-half cameo appearances. And then the big match against United.
Gomez has played in six of Liverpool's eight games Premier League games this season, and has worked his way to becoming something of a regular player under Jurgen Klopp after a serious of injuries, which limited his game time after his 2015 transfer. Burnley, Crystal Palace, and Manchester United took their points in 2017, after the Blues were pretty strongly ahead.
Roberto Firmino's loss of form coupled with a crisis of confidence for Daniel Sturridge and the disruption of Barcelona's attempts to sign star man Philippe Coutinho have all had a destabilising impact on Liverpool's effectiveness in front of goal. This is also the first time in years that Sergio Aguero has started a season with genuine competition for the lead striker position, in Gabriel Jesus.
Their 29 goals in eight league games means City are scoring 3.625 per game. City's bench can be as scary to opposition managers as the starting team itself.
Gomez produced an excellent performance at Anfield as he was successful with 86 per cent of his attempted passes and made five defensive actions, limiting the threat of Anthony Martial. That fixture could be an early six pointer for both clubs.
