Manchester United star a sudden doubt for Manchester derby after missing training

Anthony Martial impressed against Juventus

Mourinho said: "I focus on the four lines, focus on football".

But a few hours earlier, they will be big rivals as they go head-to-head in the derby with City hoping to move 12 points clear of United in the Premier League.

"It was great to see to see Paul again because we're good friends", he told reporters.

"In this moment I have only to think about football and about Manchester City as the football team they are".

"It's true they are the favourites because they are in unbelievable form but this is Manchester United and you never know what can happen".

"Even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there so we are going to try, but you are right, City are a very powerful team."

"If you want to put the match into the context of where we are and where we can be, it becomes even more hard".




"I think there should be reaction and passion at the end of a match".

"It's hard enough as an isolated event, to put it in the context of where we are then it becomes even more hard". But in this type of games, I would go for David Silva as he and Kevin De Bruyne are the two players who can pick out that final pass to split open a defence, who are sitting back and trying to frustrate them.

"Some people might may not like that but I love that about him", Neville said. "And I think even if this game hadn't ended with victory I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute against a super team".

"Lukaku is training with the team this morning", said Mourinho.

Nevertheless, Mourinho is still keen to get the striker back playing as soon as possible - and the Portuguese coach has hinted that Lukaku could be back available for Sunday's showdown against Pep Guardiola's league leaders. "If the answer is positive and we have, of course, one more session tomorrow, but if the answer is positive then he is ready".

"I am not living outside so I know it's important".
