Draw would be great. However, lighting doesn't strike twice. And Mourinho can only rely on his opposition fluffing chances for so long. 

2-0 Me thinks.

Lighting ? 

Fact: United have now had 3 consecutive away wins at Juventus

Heritage :ay:also, look at the head to head Stanley provided us, Man Utd LOVES to play citeh. Other teams fear Chelsea and Citeh, not Don Mourinho!!! 

It is a weirdly good recent record against City actually. Considering the concept that Man City have so much strength in depth and Mourinho has often spent comparatively badly.

This has the making of a 0-0 or 1-1, I just hope it's a good match and not boring and please Jose keep Lukaku away, for now, things have been ok without him...so far. fingers_crossed.gif

 

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has provided an update on his squad plans ahead of the derby with City on Sunday.

There are no fresh injuries to contend with, despite the bruising encounter at Juventus in midweek, and there is a chance that Romelu Lukaku could return from his recent lay-off.

The Belgian striker did not make the trip to Turin but will hope to be involved in the Etihad Stadium clash, a key fixture ahead of another international break.

“No new injuries,” Mourinho told MUTV. “So from Juventus, we don't bring important injuries. We have 'touches' but I don't think any player that was available for Juventus will be out.

”We have a chance - it is Friday morning now - that Lukaku could be back.

I'm not one to compare squads. All I can say Man Utd are in HOT form, (probably the hottest team in all of Europe) and with Mourinho, I would take them against ANY team right now. 

Yep, the hottest team in Europe sitting 7th in the league with a +1 goal difference :rofl:

I can’t believe I actually want United to win a match, this is probably the first time that’s ever happened.

Feels dirty saying it so I’m going to take a shower now.

If we can beat Juventus away, we can beat ANYONE! Especially with Mourinho and his game changing subs/adjustments. It's understandle for Liverpool fans not to appreciate something they are not exposed to with Kloppy.

Mate I seriously think you over estimate mourinho. He hasn't done anything that impressive at utd. When you look at it klopp has done better at Liverpool. Mourinho really isn't the manager he use to be.

I sort of want to see United win again just because of how quiet certain swathes of football fans go whenever Mourinho gets a result, and I'd love to see how insufferably smug he can manage to be if he went away to Juventus and Man City and beat both in the space of a week. However, I'd also prefer it if City could go ahead and open up a bit of a gap ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table sooner rather than later so I can tolerate some other form of entertainment from the Jose soap opera this week when they lose tomorrow.

The bookies are not giving you a chance, you can back united @ 8.4, the same as if we was playing a lower league team xD  ..£10 on united wins you £74  ..£10 on City wins you £4   ...you never see a poor bookie

If true that's well worth a punt.

If United beat City today and Jose celebrated like SAF did when we beat City at OT in 2009 with a last-gasp goal by Owen I wonder what the media would make of that after Jose's reaction after the Juve match lol.

Hope Man U win just go see Mourinho’s celebration. 

@Teso dos Bichoshas been spot on with his predictions recently so I’m going for 3-2 Man U with my boy Teso

I'm up for showering together as much as the next man, but it's not necessary here. When one team's managed by a bit of a cunt and the other is owned by the literal scum of the earth, I don't think there's any shame in putting rivalry to one side and rooting for the (much) lesser of two evils

God...Fellaini is replacing him, gulp     :censored:

 

"It has been confirmed Paul Pogba is out of Sunday's Manchester derby against City, due to injury.

The midfielder played through the pain barrier in Wednesday's memorable win away to Juventus, but hasn't been able to recover for today and is replaced by Marouane Fellaini in the starting line-up.

Unfortunately, the Frenchman sustained a knock during the Champions League tie but played on due to the importance of the occasion."
