Man United need to grow up -Mourinho

Pep Guardiola feels Manchester United are still in the title race, but does not believe the Manchester derby is the biggest game of the season.

United trained at 3pm on Thursday afternoon following their return from Turin where they beat Juventus 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"If you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and football potential starts with investment after that of course there is a quality of the work, of the organisation, I think that is untouchable".

"It's a new game, a new situation", the Spanish midfielder added. He seems to have also assumed the responsibility with Kevin De Bruyne out of creating things and his battle with probably Ashley Young could be key.

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".

"When you win, you are more optimistic in your preparations for the next game", Herrera told the British media. If they play like the first half at Bournemouth it could get ugly. The Argentina forward said this to Sky Sport Italia: "I didn't insult him".

To date, Sanchez has scored just four times in 28 appearances for the Red Devils, something which has left Jose Mourinho baffled as he searches for answers for the player's drop in form.

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.

David de Gea: There's no way he will come off the pitch on Sunday without having to have made a few top saves.

'He has a short backlift, it doesn't take him time to hit the ball and even the keeper didn't move, De Gea has fantastic reactions but even he didn't lift a hand.

De Gea for Manchester United and for Man City there are so many options I could name about five or six.

United finished second behind City last term - albeit lagging 19 points adrift of the record-breaking champions - but they are seventh going into the weekend's clash.
