United will go toe-to-toe with City, says Mourinho

10 November 2018

"Like all the games are so tight, last minutes no team controlled the game and you have to defend well and try to attack like we've done in the last few games".

Manchester City host United on Sunday, with Guardiola's side top of the Premier League table after making an unbeaten start to their title defence.

"It's true they are the favourites because they are in unbelievable form but this is Manchester United and you never know what can happen".

United cross Manchester on Sunday following successive comeback wins, a 2-1 triumph at Bournemouth followed by a stunning Champions League victory at Serie A giants Juventus by the same scoreline.

"If you want to put the match into the context of where we are and where we can be, it becomes even more hard".

"In this moment I have only to think about football, and to think about football is to think about Manchester City as a football team".

The 25-year-old, who scored twice in the 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium in April, will get a chance to prove his fitness during United's final training session on Saturday before the game the following day.

Paulo Dybala has revealed what he said to Jose Mourinho after confronting the Manchester United boss as he taunted the Juventus fans on Wednesday night. 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. I don't want to think about it'.

However, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winning star was said to have had some basic indoor training on Friday, which suggests a minor niggle rather than a long-term injury. It is hard enough being an isolated event. Yet they have also fallen into the habit of going behind in matches.

"If the answer is positive, he's ready but in this moment I can only say he trains with the team, I don't know his answer".
