  • Jose Mourinho has drawn up a list of six players he wants to sign

Mourinho and Manchester United are desperate to avoid a defeat Manchester City on Saturday and see their neighbours celebrate a title win in front of their eyes.

As for United, Jose Mourinho would love nothing more than to delay City's title-winning party for at least another week and United's players and fans will loathe to see Guardiola and Co. celebrating the earliest ever English top-flight title win in history.

City are now 16 points ahead of United, although they did suffer a shock 3-0 loss to Premier League rivals Liverpool in the first leg of a Champions League quarter-final tie at Anfield on Wednesday.

Guardiola has confirmed that Sergio Aguero will have a late fitness test ahead of the game after taking part in light training on Friday. The City boss must decide whether to go full strength against United and risk tiredness or injury for the second leg. Sadly, Pogba has yet to fulfil it at Old Trafford with his form so disappointing that Jose Mourinho has dropped him this year. It is the first time he played at Anfield, it is the first time he played in a knockout game in the Champions League. You have to live these situations, once, twice or three times to become better players.

"We are going into it to win it".

The problem that United have though is that under Mourinho, United's away record against the other top six sides isn't the best but this weekend would be a good time to put things right. With 27 wins so far, they can also beat Chelsea's high of 30 victories set last season. "We're looking forward to playing against them and having a good performance". "United defend differently from Liverpool". We are close to being champions.

While they don't have to be overly aggressive so as to force a clearance or a back pass to the keeper, they can at least make it hard for the ball to be played into central areas of the pitch from where City are so adept at building attacks. "During this hard process with him passing away, I managed to have contact with his family through his son, so I know exactly how they feel about their father and obviously I feel sorry".

United need a match victor in the final third in these games and Alexis Sanchez could be that man to break City hearts once again this season.

"Liverpool played like they always do at Anfield - the first 25 minutes of the second half we were good".

We expect an enthralling derby with an expected goal fest from the top Manchester clubs.

"They're nearly qualified but we have 90 minutes". It's nearly closed but there is a little bit open. We will have our chance to be in the game and we will try to go through.
