  • Could Pogba's ban be a blessing in disguise for Manchester United?

"This isn't me being an ex-Liverpool player caning a Man Utd player".

However, despite that Pogba will miss Manchester United's next three matches after he picked up a red card during the 3-1 win over Arsenal.

'But Manchester United have good players and it doesn't matter who is going to play in his position, they will do a good job.

The influential Pogba, United's record signing, is out of Sunday's clash at Old Trafford through suspension.

Pogba can definitely improve the tactical and positional areas of his game, as at times he does tend to become attracted to marauding forward when sometimes, like against Arsenal last weekend when his team is two nil up, the best option is sometimes to sit in, and pick your moments to burst forward a little more wisely.

The comment came on Irish television following United's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

"He hasn't taken a big game by the scruff of the neck and dominated it". Derbies are always special. To win those games, you need to give everything.

If City are to win the game they will have to find a way past in-form United goalkeeper David de Gea, who made a staggering 14 saves against the Gunners last weekend.

The Sky Sports pundit believes Jose Mourinho will want to put a defensive side out to shackle Pep Guardiola's Premier League pace setters and the Frenchman would not fit.

Meanwhile, Press Association Sport understands City are considering touring the United States for a second successive pre-season next summer.

Sunday's derby game will present the likes of Ander Herrera, Delay Blind and young Scott McTominay the chance to prove their worth if selected by the manager, which can also influence the game positively for United, as we saw with Rashford.

"But deep down in his mind, he'll want to stop Man City and that might be how to do it". City had won their previous 20 games in all competitions, many of them convincingly.
