3 key battles that will decide the Manchester derby

Jose Mourinho mastered yet another remarkable comeback this week

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has detailed his post-match confrontation with Jose Mourinho after their Champions League defeat to Manchester United.

Manchester United have a fitness scare over Paul Pogba ahead of Sunday's derby at the Etihad Stadium.

The allegations about City's finances have been made by German publication Der Spiegel, citing documents and private emails obtained from the whistle-blowing group Football Leaks.

Der Spiegel's reporting claims Sheikh Mansour's City regime topped up multi-million-pound sponsorship deals with Abu Dhabi companies, using their owner's fortune, in order to meet UEFA's Financial Fair Play (FFP) stipulations.

"The first game [at Old Trafford] was awesome for me, and the second for him".

"So if you want to speak about their football potential we can speak, and football potential starts with investment".

They meet regularly and have been spotted at restaurants in the city centre along with other players including United's Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini and City's Riyad Mahrez. Yet they have also fallen into the habit of going behind in matches.

Manchester City host United on Sunday, with Guardiola's side top of the Premier League table after making an unbeaten start to their title defence.

Jose Mourinho's men have collected 2-1 victories from each of those outings - both away from home - with Alexis Sanchez chosen to lead the line after being moved inside from the flanks.

"We are not a team that gives up", said Mourinho. "Just think about the match".

"We have to just think about the match, is hard enough as an isolated event, if you want to put that match into the context of where we are and where we can be".

"We have touches but I don't think any player that was available for Juventus will be out".

Mourinho's side seem to have rediscovered that knack in recent games, scoring an injury-time victor against Bournemouth and forcing a late Juventus own goal in Turin.

"We are going to try". So from Juventus we don't bring important injuries.
