Manchester United: Jose Mourinho says his side need to grow up

Pre match interview from the boss.

Confirmed Lukaku trained today and they will decide tomorrow if he's ready to be involved.

Injury wise I think we are pretty clear at the moment Valencia returned to training after mouth surgery during the week the only player currently listed as injured is Dalot but that one seems to be a bit of a mystery as no one seems to have reported what's wrong he just picked up an injury during the last international break.

In terms of the team for Sunday it probably picks itself the same team that started vs Juventus.

De Gea

Young Smalling Lindelöf Shaw

Herrera Matic Pogba

Lingard Sanchez Martial

I guess it really depends on if any of them picked up knocks or have struggled to recover from Wednesday.

We’d miss his quality with the ball in terms of creating chances but if we want to direct Fellaini off the striker could give you a chance to beat the press and tactical fouling that City like to do when they lose the ball.

Any news on Pogba? Can’t see anything other than he didn’t show at the hotel.

If we can avoid defeat today it’ll be a decent block of results for us in this group of games between the two international breaks.

Matic and Fellaini? Dear god!

I’m sure he will put the donkey back up front too if he’s on the bench

Phil Jones on the bench. He’ll probably injure himself sitting there.

Surprised to see Sanchez dropped too

We look in awe of City. Yeah they are good but we can’t be scared otherwise we’ve basically admitted defeat already.

Shouldn’t even get on the pitch. Alexis and Mata for Herrera and Lingard would be my move

Bright side. We should have been dead and buried inside 20 mins. At 1 we’re still in the game.
