City XI - Pogba In, De Bruyne Out?

Pep Guardiola, not Jose Mourinho, is playing football better suited to Manchester United's traditions.

Sunday's derby game will present the likes of Ander Herrera, Delay Blind and young Scott McTominay the chance to prove their worth if selected by the manager, which can also influence the game positively for United, as we saw with Rashford.

Fernandinho expects Manchester United to feel the absence of Paul Pogba in this weekend's derby against Manchester City.

If it heralds a fall-off in form for City and the beginnings of a closer battle at the top of the table with United, it will go down as a turning point in this season's so-far rather one-sided battle for supremacy.

The arrival in Manchester of the two pre-eminent managers of the age stoked the embers of a bitter personal rivalry that had crackled with blistering intensity during the two years they spent in opposing camps in Spain.

Mourinho nourished the hostility, villainously jabbing his finger in the eye of Guardiola's assistant, the late Tito Vilanova, during a Spanish Super Cup match in 2011.

But by the time of their most recent meeting, at the Etihad Stadium in April, thoughts of an all-Manchester title shootout had vanished.

"I'm looking forward to this derby because it will be interesting because it is a different Man City now and a different Man United".

The club is said to be interested in Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose who will command a huge sum.

"It is an important season for both coaches - Mourinho and Guardiola".

Manchester United will be hoping to move to within five points of the Premier League leaders with a win against Manchester City.

Seven months on City look nearly transcendent, their sublime and devastatingly effective possession football reminiscent of Guardiola's great Barcelona team.

The Frenchman was sent off in the Red Devils' 3-1 win away at Arsenal on Saturday evening, after his studs quite clearly caught Bellerin's leg.

United scored 80 league goals on their way to the title in 1994 - 17 more than second-place Blackburn. Questions persist about whether he really controls the midfield as a player of his stature and ability should but Pogba is a master at leading a break and linking the back of the team to the front.

It landed him with a three-game suspension, which begins this weekend.

"You want the truth", Mourinho said.
