  • Jose Mourinho mastered yet another remarkable comeback this week

"Of course we are on a good run, United as well, it will be like all the games so tight, no team controls the game for 90 minutes and we have to defend well and attack like we have in the last games".

The Manchester City boss faces old rival Jose Mourinho, whose Manchester United side delayed them winning last season's Premier League title with a surprise 3-2 win at the Etihad Stadium in April. I just told him that and left'.

"If we draw it's nine [points] and if we lose it's 12 - it's not the way to look at the match", Mourinho said.

"The beauty of these two clubs and their fans who love their team - two teams in a great city", he says.

"They are a very good team with very good players, so you have to be on your toes all the time and can't relax for a second. I think he's been fantastic and I'm very happy to have him as a coach".

And Mourinho said United are not focusing on the yawning gap between the two clubs in the build-up to Sunday's game.

"He talks to me, tries to help me, he gives me - how do you say it in English... to improve my game and stuff like that".

"I want to play it as an isolated match against a hard team".

Whatever United's plans, they must involve what has been a problem for most Etihad visitors though, and that is staying in the game.

City were in control against, leading by two first-half goals, only for United to stage a second-half rally and win 3-2, with Pogba scoring twice in a matter of minutes before Chris Smalling fired the victor.

"So if we keep conceding goals before the opponent we will arrive at the day where we can not come back so we have to make sure that we grow up, not just in our approach, but also in our compactness in order to start matches well".

"Lukaku is training with the team [on Friday], if this answer is positive and we have of course one more session [on Saturday]", Mourinho said.

Striker Romelu Lukaku is back training with the side and could be available for Sunday. "But, for me, the Premier League, local leagues, are so important, with all the history".
