Man Utd will miss banned Paul Pogba this weekend

Man Utd will miss banned Paul Pogba this weekend

Fernandinho expects Manchester United to feel the absence of Paul Pogba in this weekend's Manchester derby.

While City have had to grind out wins, needing late goals to see off Feyenoord, Huddersfield Town, Southampton and West Ham United, Mourinho's counter-attacking United team have hit form.

"The Premier League is so hard and tough", said the Brazilian.

City were thought likely to play in an ICC tournament in China in 2018 but organisers may hold off on staging such an event in that country until a non-World Cup year.

The first Manchester derby to be played on foreign soil was hosted in Houston, Texas, in July, and sources have told Goal that another showdown in the U.S. is on the cards once again. We always played with wingers.

"It would have been better to keep Ryan Giggs".

Many fans were delighted with the Spaniard's arrival but knew that Moyes' only bought him to try and rescue his own career at Old Trafford.

But Fernandinho still thinks United will be formidable opponents for City, who are bidding to extend their eight-point lead at the top of the table. Thrillingly, a championship was on the line (City's victory would put them top on goal difference, which is where they would conclude the campaign amid all that nail-biting drama just two games later).

But he insists that if Guardiola triumphs this weekend, the race will be over. The remaining place goes to the only locally born player to have scored a trophy-winning goal for either Manchester club in years; Jesse Lingard's certainly the man for the big occasion, and his movement could help create space for his team-mates to create big problems. There will be no chance. "It is too much".

"If we lost two out of three and they win everything, they are there".

"I remember Ferguson would make us all stay in a hotel the night before the derby to prepare for the game - he wanted everyone concentrate on the game".

"They (United) might, for the first time this season, have just seen a little ray of hope", said former United captain Gary Neville in his Sky Sports podcast.

"If you won a derby, all season the fans would say 'well done guys you beat City'". Now there is a big change.

"It [the derby] is important for both teams".

One of the more freakish aspects of Manchester City's unbeaten start to the Premier League is the fact that Everton, one of the big disappointments this season, is the only team to take points off Pep Guardiola's runaway leaders after a 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium in August. Big names in both teams. I can't wait for this game.
