‘A little wind and they fall…’ – Mourinho pokes Man City ahead of crunch derby

By Robert Abong'o | Dec 10th 2017 | 1 min read

One of the most anticipated derbies of the world takes centre stage tonight as Manchester United host local rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Man United coach Jose Mourinho says that he has identified one weakness in the Manchester City side and would probably use that to win the game tonight.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Mourinho said, “If you ask me one thing that I don't like a lot, it's that they lose the balance very easily. A little bit of wind and they fall."

City are already 8 points ahead of Man United in the standings and a win for Mourinho’s men would see them reduce the gap to five points as we head into the Christmas period.

The last time these two sides met at Old Trafford saw Kevin de Bruyne and Kelechi Iheanacho score in the first half to hand Pep Guardiola a famous win.

With what’s at stake currently, Man United will look to shut down Man city’s amazing start to the season.

Football pundits have argued that Man City have been struggling lately, scoring late goals against West Ham and Southampton in the Premier League and losing to Turkish giants Shakhtar Donetsk in the Premier League.

The Red Devils will be without French play-maker Paul Pogba due to his suspension but will see Phil Jones, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovi? return.
