  • Garth Crooks says Man Utd should be worried about playing Man City

Influential City playmaker Silva scored a late victor last time out against West Ham to preserve an eight-point lead for Guardiola over Mourinho at the top of the Premier League table.

Manchester City restored their eight-point gap over Manchester United on Sunday thanks to David Silva's late victor against West Ham United.

Kevin de Bruyne is another who has not made the journey to Ukraine with the Belgium global set to serve a one-match suspension after picking up three yellow cards in the group phase of the competition.

"It means a lot to everyone. but you've got to play with your heads and if you're going to go blow-for-blow with Manchester City with attractive football, then I think you're going to come unstuck". It's a competition, you want to play against the best teams and the best players. "We need to keep focused with whatever we are doing and keep busy with ourselves".

Pogba, prior to his red card against Arsenal, is hoping City pick up injuries to key players.

"It will be interesting to see if they will be like that against Manchester City because Manchester City could pierce them open, should they come out the back".


De Bruyne would fit into that category of "some very important players", and he's responded to Pogba.

Mourinho confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has not been involved in United's last two matchday squads as he continues his recovery from a long-term cruciate knee ligament injury, has a "big chance" of featuring against City.

The arrival in Manchester of the two pre-eminent managers of the age stoked the embers of a bitter personal rivalry that had crackled with blistering intensity during the two years they spent in opposing camps in Spain.

"So if that starts happening with them as well maybe we'll get a little difference".

"Leroy [Sane] needed time to adapt a bit - to the way we play".

However, according to Sky Italia the Catalan has sent an SMS message to Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri, promising him that City will give their "maximum effort" to beat Shakhtar and make it six wins out of six in Group F.
