The big question mark ahead of Sunday's match surrounds the fitness of Romelu Lukaku, who Mourinho says will be in contention to feature if he comes through training unscathed on Friday and Saturday. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this fantastic result". So, we have to make sure we grow up not just in our approach, - because that I think is clear that the team is growing up - but also we have to grow up in our compactness and to start matches well.

City are on course to retain the Premier League crown, but Mourinho is not getting worked up about cutting back a gap that already stands at nine points.

Meanwhile, Dybala has revealed he would love to play on the same team as United midfielder Paul Pogba again in the future. "I came here to do my job, nothing more", said the former Inter Milan coach.

Fred told FourFourTwo, "That's true I received an offer from Manchester city and even talked to my Brazilian-teammates who play for our neighbours". They have more potential than us. They face Young Boys then Valencia.

"You know, I think we have to just think about the match".

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit the woodwork before five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41 470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci's long pass from just inside United's half.

Not to mention Alex Sandro brutally nutmegging Jesse Lingard.

"The Champions League is a special competition, where you could be winning, but you can't relax, as anything can happen", continued Ronaldo, who has won the competition four times Real Madrid and once with United.

"Now we've got to lift our heads, as we played really well and are still top of the group". "I expect a hard game but, in a derby, everything is possible, and we will be ready for that".

He said: "If we keep conceding goals before the opponent, it will arrive the day where we can not come back".
