Pogba confident United can cope with City threat

Indeed, the only real downside to losing 2-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk is that the timing is not ideal, given it comes right before Sunday's Manchester derby.

Angelo Ogbonna's opener for West Ham came directly from a corner, as did the goal that City conceded against Huddersfield last week, while Southampton troubled them from set pieces during the week.

"Against Arsenal, they could get away with it". Bernardo Silva is set to start in his place.

'I have had similar deciders in my career but this is the first time I have had such a game in the Champions League'. Phil Foden showed good composure although this was a tough test for the 17-year-old in an unfamiliar wing back role.

"I think teams respect us".

Even then, things were not all bad. Pep Guardiola said in his pre-match presser that he wants his team to win this game, but that doesn't mean he'll go with a really strong team. Brahim and Foden are City's two brightest youth prospects and any first-team opportunities can not be taken for granted.

Shakhtar needed only a point to secure their progress as Group F runners-up behind City from a match that, including Marlos, featured nine Brazilians from the start.

Speaking after Tuesday's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow, Mourinho was not buying it and grouped Guardiola's claims with those of Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager who said Alexandre Lacazette would not face United last weekend before he promptly played and scored in the Emirates Stadium thriller that the visitors won 3-1.

De Bruyne, who played an instrumental part in City's winning goal against West Ham on Sunday reckons this derby will not one to miss, with United looking to close the gap between the two Manchester clubs. That is nine of 10 outfielders who have hardly been overworked of late.

"I'm telling the truth, he's injured but will play for sure". Will he continue his rich vain of form in the Manchester derby?

Shakhtar are second in the group on nine points and need to avoid losing, besides that being their responsibility, since Napoli can leapfrog them into second if they beat Feyenoord and Man City win.
