Paul Pogba has harmed Manchester United's chances in the derby, says Fernandinho

Mourinho identifies three key positions to strengthen in £80m January spree

That brought the victor in the home game against Tottenham, when United sat deep and were largely content to frustrate, and, while it's unlikely City would succumb to quite such a simple goal as Spurs did, Martial and Lingard running from deep would be a huge test of Fernandinho's defensive capacities specifically and City's defensive organisation in general.

"If Manchester United wins this derby game against Manchester City, they've a good chance to win the title", the former Russia winger told Omnisport, speaking at the signing of his book Russian Winters: The Story of Andrei Kanchelskis (deCoubertin).

United are also aware that they need to strengthen to close the gap on rivals City at the top of the Premier League.

After the phony war of their first season in Manchester, the rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will resume for real in Sunday's seismic derby showdown at Old Trafford.

United's defensive record speaks for itself this campaign so it's just a matter of who makes the cut there - and with Victor Lindelof's recent form, we feel he is the right man to partner Eric Bailly.

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. If United beats City's high pressing game or steals possession to launch a counterattack, Lukaku may look to isolate and get behind Nicolas Otamendi.

"And that's why I'm really looking forward to the game at the weekend because United are the best equipped at the moment to give them a game and I think Man United will give them a big game".

Public Service Enterprise Group Inc. (NYSE:PEG)
The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the SEC, which can be accessed through this hyperlink . (NYSE:HP) for 5,121 shares. The utilities provider reported $0.82 EPS for the quarter, missing the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.84 by ($0.02).

Jose Mourinho has been handed a triple injury boost ahead of the Manchester derby this weekend after Phil Jones, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marouane Fellaini came through training unscathed this week.

A grim 0-0 draw left both teams locked in a battle for fourth place as Antonio Conte's Chelsea streaked towards glory.

The Portuguese coach has been given the green light to spend on reinforcements for his squad as they attempt to compete with Manchester City for the Premier League title.

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

If United are able to stifle City, there is plenty of evidence they can score against them.

"And secondly, that I wanted to show what I could bring to the team, to prove myself".

"You want the truth", Mourinho said.
