Manchester United face Manchester City in the first Manchester Derby of the Premier League season at Old Trafford. United have rebuilt considerably since last season; bringing in Jose Mourinho, Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Paul Pogba this summer. Last season, United and City drew at Old Trafford, with United winning at the Etihad. The season before saw United lose at the Etihad and win at Old Trafford, this season should be on par with the last two, but with the rebuilding, new manager and winning mentality restored at the club, many will be expecting a double over City this season, which would be great.
Jose Mourinho sat down with the media to hold his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon, where he confirmed that he has no injuries heading into this match, United’s biggest of the season so far. The Portuguese also spoke about his opposition and the fact he is setting out to win the Premier League this season, which after three season’s out of the race to regain the title, would be an immense feeling. Mourinho has brought back the winning mentality, the feel good factor and most importantly the fear factor is returning, as is the fact many hate United again, so we are starting to get back to business, as usual.
