United thriving as underdogs ahead of derby clash: Herrera

United thriving as underdogs ahead of derby clash: Herrera

Jose Mourinho's men, just like they did in Turin, came back from behind to beat Manchester City in April, depriving them of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win the league in front of their neighbours.

City have also finished ahead of United in the league in every season since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in May 2013 and Silva said that is evidence enough of the changing of the guard in Manchester since the 6-1 win.

Pep Guardiola said Sunday's Manchester derby will be a special occasion but that it is too early for the match to be considered the biggest game of the season.

United, who are unbeaten in their last three, will head into Sunday's game full of confidence after Wednesday's dramatic 2-1 late win at Juventus in the Champions League. "I came here to do my job, nothing more", the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

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

"If you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and about where football potential starts, and that starts with investment", Mourinho said. "A difficult match against a difficult team but they think it is a difficult match for them". "I don't think it is the way to look at the match".

Combative Trump brawls with media and slams his own party
It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter's colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. One recent survey from Rasmussen, a generally Trump-friendly poll, found that approval number at 36 per cent.

"We played a fantastic game, to our top level, as we can not be any better than this", said Mourinho.

"We are always ready to compete and need to take advantage of the good momentum of the team at the moment".

United though had the final word as Mourinho brought on Mata and Marouane Fellaini, who helped turn the game round in just four minutes, the Spaniard bending in a free-kick from the edge of the box to give the visitors a scarcely-deserved equaliser. "But you are right, Manchester City is a very powerful team".

"We have to stop them in their attacks, there is a way to do it and the manager knows that". It is hard enough being an isolated event.

Juan Mata's late equalizer and a disastrous own-goal from Leonardo Bonucci secured three points for Jose Mourinho's side and, despite having the last laugh on the pitch, United Jesse Lingard couldn't resist poking fun at Ronaldo on Instagram.

"They were trying to convince me to join them, but in the end it didn't happen".
