Will José Mourinho be able to stop Manchester City?

Will José Mourinho be able to stop Manchester City?

The swagger and swashbuckling bravado he brings to the pitch has always been his biggest strength and somewhere, beyond his injudicious words, there is just a harmless guy who wants the best for his team.

The Times said United's stance would be welcomed by the Premier League's existing rights-holders, including Sky Sports and BT Sport, who have reportedly privately expressed irritation at the access City are granting to a commercial rival.

"United have some great strength and pace and Shaw was a big part of that today".

Among the players most deserving of an opportunity, in Mourinho's opinion, were Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford - who had been dropped for the games against Watford and Arsenal.

The result stretches United's unbeaten run at Old Trafford to 39 matches - something Manchester City will be looking to snap when they visit on Super Sunday.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has tonight opened up on his side's chances of winning the Champions League, following a 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow in their final Group fixture. "So, if that starts happening with them as well, maybe we'll get a little difference... a little touch that makes them weaker". It's impossible to know what is done for the camera and what are his natural actions/reactions (and maybe this is even more true in a world where everything is recorded. not to mention the fact that Pogba is a world famous athlete) but Pogba never seems to be playing a character.

With the Pep Guardiola model established, his squad packed with technically gifted and tactically aware devotees, City's level is set.

Celtic claimed a Europa League berth by finishing third but did so in a disappointing fashion as they lost 1-0 at home to Anderlecht. "They had the decision, the referee, got the red card and that's football".

Hughes was sacked after City finished fifth in the league. City, with a pass completion rate of 88.8 per cent this season, do not look like a team with much fear of the ball.

There was a video during the last international break of Pogba visiting France's facilities. Bernardo doesn't - he believes and is ready to play. Sometimes, though, it's just important to think before you speak.
