Jose Mourinho has said Manchester City are "untouchable" on the eve of the derby but avoided questions about allegations the Premier League champions have circumvented financial fair play (FFP) rules. You have to defend deep and well, defend crosses well because they are so strong and better than us at set-pieces. On a side note, Alexis Sanchez played a starring role in the comeback last term as he provided two assists to enhance a very decent personal record at The Etihad, where he has scored one goal and laid on three assists in his last four appearances.

"After that, of course, there is a quality of the work, of the organisation".

United were the last team to win a Premier League game at the Etihad Stadium and, despite a mixed start to the season, will head there full of confidence after fighting back against Bournemouth and Juventus to win both games 2-1. "The top teams, you can not imagine and think about it, play amazingly for 90 minutes and they don't have chances".

In the aftermath of the game, Ronaldo again drew more derision from some Old Trafford faithful when he blatantly said Jose Mourinho's side didn't deserve the win.

"It's always complicated. In our history of Manchester City it's hard to beat United and they beat us more times but it's a good rivalry and a good chance for three points".

Michael Ballack believes Maurizio Sarri has finally found the key to unlocking Chelsea's attacking qualities this season. Speaking to Sky Sports , Barkley admitted: "I don't think it will be the best reception".


It is unclear at this stage if the France midfielder is in danger of missing the trip to Manchester City or when the problem occurred.

Dybala wasn't the only player to talk after the match. Yet they have also fallen into the habit of going behind in matches.

Manchester United will give a fitness test to Romelu Lukaku, who has missed their last two league and cup games with an unspecified injury.

"When Mario [Mandzukic] plays he's more of a reference point, and then there's also Douglas and [Federico] Bernardeschi, so we have a lot of options in attack".
