Manchester derby dissected: How United can delay's City's title celebrations

Guardiola's men were outplayed entirely by Liverpool, as the Reds registered a 3-0 Champions League quarterfinals first-leg lead over the Citizens.

A summer tour of North America will mark United's sixth visit to the continent since 2010, with two July fixtures - in Arizona and Santa Clara - already pencilled into United's schedule.

Manchester United have two injury concerns at the moment as defender Daley Blind (ankle) and goalkeeper Sergio Romero (knee) will be watching the derby from the stands.

Why is Jose Mourinho's second season so special?

Asked if he would ever be interested in signing one of Raiola's players again, Guardiola said: "I am not a good guy".

"Pep Guardiola, the coach, is fantastic", Raiola was quoted as saying.

Several used that pain as motivation the following season, some recalling that afternoon at Sunderland before every single game they played. "City will be champions". The league leaders will be eager to do some damage-control when they host local rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. But, he knows as well, (as) he said, I am a top manager. That is first objective. But after that I don't hide.

"My motivation is to finish second", he told reporters on Friday.

I never speak with him so his opinion [about me], I don't know.

When pressed if United have proved they are on the same footing as City when it comes to buying players given that they pinched Alexis Sanchez from under their noses, Mourinho remained tight-lipped.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

The Manchester United forward last month made an instant impact in the MLS after scoring twice in their 4-3 win against LAFC, one of which was a stunning 40-yard strike.

"When you look at Pep and Jose you have to say there is a massive gap".

"Everything was about Real and Barcelona".

Yet making City wait for their place among the immortals would be some consolation for United, whose midfielder Juan Mata is well aware how important it is to show some pride.

Will City clinch the title in style?

Both the Manchester clubs played very well this season which earned them more points than the rest of the 18 teams.

The Swans were rock bottom of the Premier League but now sit 15th in the table after five wins in 11 league games, including some high profile victories over Liverpool and Arsenal. While Man U wouldn't be Man City's guard of honour, they would have to suffer a packed Etihad celebrating the return of the Premier League trophy after three seasons. United certainly have the quality to go at City, but have won only one of their last 10 away games against top six sides.

Mourinho's men are in a rampant league run with four straight wins.

He is due a stand out game in a big match, the type of performance he was so capable of at Juventus but less so at United.

"We are going to focus on this game".
