Predicted Manchester United XI vs. Manchester City - Romelu Lukaku in contention

Anthony Martial impressed against Juventus

Anthony Martial impressed against Juventus

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's a very good team, especially at home", the ever-improving Swedish centre-back said.

"I want to play it as an isolated match against a hard team". "Against Juventus it happened, we conceded the goal in minute 60 or something like that and we had a good start".

United trained at 3pm on Thursday afternoon following their return from Turin where they beat Juventus 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday. Mourinho's team are enjoying a fine week, having won at Bournemouth and Juventus, while last month they drew at Chelsea after leading until the closing moments.

"I lived in Barcelona for many years and know special derbies against Real Madrid, and in Germany against Borussia Dortmund like this weekend - it's special, I know that, but we have to be focused".

"So if you want to speak about their football potential we can speak, and football potential starts with investment". But what is behind, I can not say.

Farrell cleared to take on All Blacks
But they now head into a clash against the All Blacks at Twickenham on November 10 buoyed by two successive wins. England are looking for their first victory against the All Blacks since December 2012.

And Mourinho said United are not focusing on the yawning gap between the two clubs in the build-up to Sunday's game.

"After that there's the quality of the work and the organisation and I think that is untouchable, but what is behind I can not say".

City were in control against, leading by two first-half goals, only for United to stage a second-half rally and win 3-2, with Pogba scoring twice in a matter of minutes before Chris Smalling fired the victor. Teammates are believed to have made claims of the player looking intimidated when the Portuguese goes off in the dressing room but say he has also upset coaches by answering back during training sessions.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola looks on.

"The first 75 minutes in the last game, I'd like to play the same, top for 75 minutes, but United showed us last season they need 10, 15, 20 minutes to create a lot of chances", Guardiola said.

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