Manchester derby is not the biggest game of the season - Pep Guardiola

Manchester derby is not the biggest game of the season - Pep Guardiola

Ashley Young has done a great job of filling in at full-back for Manchester United on both the left and the right side of the back four, with him most likely to line-up on the right, and as captain, on Sunday against Man City.

Paulo Dybala has revealed what he said to Jose Mourinho after the Manchester United manager taunted Juventus fans on Wednesday night.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: "If we keep conceding [opening] goals the day will arrive where we can not come back".

Pogba and Mendy have known each other since they were together as youngsters at Le Havre's youth academy and have maintained that friendship in Manchester. Yet they have also fallen into the habit of going behind in matches.

The national squad have become very close following their success at the 2018 World Cup.

"We will try especially to have a good game".

"All derbies are special, I think in Spain there is more noise than here but special, special for everybody", he said.

Pep Guardiola's Premier League leaders lie in wait at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday as United look to emerge from a daunting double-header with another memorable away win. "The top teams, you can not imagine and think about it, play amazingly for 90 minutes and they don't have chances".

David Silva is usually the man but this time I think it's time for Raheem Sterling to step up in a huge game.

"But United have it themselves, with their history behind them, it's always there". "He is training with the team this morning". Since we arrive we try to convince to never give up and try again and again it's why in the last month we didn't lose two or three in a row, we are consistent.

"So if we keep conceding goals before the opponent we will arrive at the day where we can not come back so we have to make sure that we grow up, not just in our approach, but also in our compactness in order to start matches well".

The big question mark ahead of Sunday's match surrounds the fitness of Romelu Lukaku, who Mourinho says will be in contention to feature if he comes through training unscathed on Friday and Saturday.
