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

Asked whether beating City on the back of defeating Juventus could be a turning point in United's season, Lindelof said: "I think so, yes".

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.

Der Spiegel showed how the team's holding company _ state-backed Abu Dhabi United Group _ sent cash to a shell vehicle which was created to supposedly buy the right to use players' images in marketing campaigns.

"At the end, UEFA, FIFA, English federation has to say if we were wrong", Guardiola said. I think that is untouchable but what is behind [the scenes] I can not say.

"I expect a very hard game". "Against Juventus it happened, we conceded the goal in minute 60 or something like that and we had a good start". After that, of course, there is a quality of the work and the quality of the organisation and I think that is untouchable. Teammates are believed to have made claims of the player looking intimidated when the Portuguese goes off in the dressing room but say he has also upset coaches by answering back during training sessions. 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.

One hot potato that arose in his customary pre-match press conference were the startling revelations about his side's cross-city rivals - and opponents this weekend - Manchester City that have recently arisen.

Mourinho has praised United's ability to fight back from losing positions, but suggested he would like to see them score the first goal more often.

So, we have to make sure we grow up not just in our approach, - because that I think is clear that the team is growing up - but also we have to grow up in our compactness and to start matches well. "But, for me, the Premier League, local leagues, are so important, with all the history".
