"Even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there so we are going to try, but you are right, City are a very powerful team."

United trained at 3pm on Thursday afternoon following their return from Turin where they beat Juventus 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"It's hard for me to answer because I focus on my job, I focus on the four lines and I focus on football", Mourinho told reporters.

"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.

Both Pogba and Lukaku have one more training session left to prove their fitness before Manchester United take on Manchester City.

Nevertheless, Mourinho is still keen to get the striker back playing as soon as possible - and the Portuguese coach has hinted that Lukaku could be back available for Sunday's showdown against Pep Guardiola's league leaders. "I don't know his answer".
