Ibrahimovic, Fellaini and Jones come through training unscathed ahead of Manchester derby

  • Steven Gerrard replies when asked if Man United will win the Champions League

Joining in the theme of late, we pick a combined United / City XI ahead of the Manchester derby.

Manchester United have performed brilliantly this season under the management of Jose Mourinho still, they are eight points behind league leaders Manchester City in the table.

The former Juventus star even had his walking gait and running style analysed, with a series of new exercises implemented to combat the massive loads he puts through his quads when suddenly changing direction in games.

And United's chances of clawing back the advantage took a blow on Saturday, when Pogba picked up a three-match ban for a stamp on Hector Bellerin.

John Giles is tipping Manchester United to give Manchester City their toughest match of the season when both sides meet in the derby on Sunday.

Since Mourinho followed him to Manchester in the summer of 2016, the speculation surrounding the future of the Spaniard has always suggested he will be once again sold by the Portuguese. City had won their previous 20 games in all competitions, many of them convincingly. For City, mounting evidence that they are the Premier League's best side and champions in waiting will be confirmed with a victory on the patch of their greatest rivals.

Mourinho's side are now eight points behind Pep Guardiola's imperious league leaders ahead of Sunday's crucial derby at Old Trafford.

Sage Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:SAGE) Sees The Needle Move on Volume
Finally, BlackRock Fund Advisors boosted its position in shares of SAGE Therapeutics by 14.6% in the third quarter. Raymond James upgraded Sage Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAGE ) on Wednesday, June 29 with "Outperform" rating.


Mourinho's first season at Real Madrid in 2010-11 culminated in an infamously spiky series of matches against Guardiola's Barcelona, who would have the last laugh by claiming a La Liga and Champions League double.

He added: "If United can win both derbies then they will have a good chance of winning the title".

"But if they lose on Sunday it is finished". In saving the majority of his big-game players for the domestic spat, he may have handed qualification to the Ukrainians and ended City's record, but - if it results in a win at Old Trafford this weekend - it will no doubt be seen in the blue half of Manchester as a worthwhile sacrifice.

It was hardly ideal preparation for one of the most intense fixtures in their schedule but Fernandinho thinks the loss could be just the jolt the City team needed to stave off any complacency.

"I'm looking forward to this derby because it will be interesting because it is a different Man City now and a different Man United".

"Last season City didn't win a trophy and United didn't win the league, just the League Cup and Europa League".
