Manchester City and Manchester United are set to play a huge Manchester Derby on Thursday that will tell us where each team is likely to finish in the race for a Champions League place next season. The two managers, Pep Guardiola and José Mourinho, spoke to the media ahead of the game.
Here's a rundown of their pre-match quotes:
“David Silva real, real doubt - I don’t know if he will be ready to play after what happened in the first minutes in the semi-final. Gabriel [Jesus] has no pain at all so is ready but [after] three months out his physical condition is not optimal. Sergio [Agüero] is much better. Today he make a part of the training session. Tomorrow he will be ready.”
“Of course they have been playing the last games without [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] but they achieve to play the way Jose Mourinho wants. They win a lot of duels between the players.
“Ibra is a great player but they also have lots of good players like Lingard, Young and Rashford and they find spaces between the lines.
“We go with what we have and we fight with what we have. I trust the boys and we go with everything we have until the last second of the season, we hope. We are fighters, the boys are fighters, and we go."
“[The rivalry] means nothing. If we finish fifth and they finish sixth, it means nothing. If they finish third and we finish fourth, they are above us but it means a lot.
“This is not about Pep [Guardiola], this is not about City, this is about objectives and we want to try to play Champions League football. We still have two doors open.”
