Manchester City vs Manchester United: Potential XI with Fred

Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says his gesture towards Juventus fans after Wednesday night's 2-1 UEFA Champions League soccer Group H victory was justified. It could be that the past few weeks of turmoil has brought manager and players closer together, or a matter of luck, but ultimately, results have been on an upswing and the Red Devils will surely be confident heading into the weekend's derby. But I came here as a professional that does his work and people insulted my family and my Inter family and this is why I reacted this way. "When you play in this atmosphere, when you have those fans, it's just lovely".

This time he had a win to celebrate after watching his team being dominated and then fight back after former United star Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular opener.

Ronaldo struck with a magnificent first-time volley on 65 minutes to leave Juve on course for the knock-out phase, but Mata equalised with an 86th-minute free-kick before Leonardo Bonucci turned into his own net.

It was Juve's first loss in any competition this season. "The game was really top and I think we perform at a high level".

"But the others didn't forget".

"We managed to win because we played a very, very positive match and we looked for the victory to the very end".

Manchester City are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and nine points ahead of Manchester United, who are trailing the Citizens in eighth spot in the table.

A 2-1 Manchester City win makes some appeal at 15/2.

First-half strikes from Nabil Fekir and Tanguy Ndombele put Lyon in control at the Groupama Stadium, and Kasim Nuhu's sending off shortly after the restart left Hoffenheim with a mountain to climb.

But Mourinho wants his team to stop giving their opponents the advantage, particularly a City side who are unlikely to let them off the hook again.

Jose Mourinho's men, just like they did in Turin, came back from behind to beat Manchester City in April, depriving them of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to win the league in front of their neighbours.

When asked to commend his players on their pleasing knack of picking up late winning goals, Mourinho stated he would rather see his side take a lead and win matches via a more conventional route.
