The Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern are getting a little excited for the first Manchester Derby of the season.
After Paul Pogba’s sending off against Arsenal, our landlord thinks Mourinho will have to resort to a plan B to topple the run away leaders of the Premier League at the moment. Missing the influential Frenchman will be a bitter blow in a match that could go either way and one that could define a season.
United welcome City to an unbeaten streak stretching 40 matches at home while Mourinho aims to make Old Trafford the fortress it once was, however, City come to their bitter rivals unbeaten all season despite some close calls and scoring freely.
Our regulars think this could be a match that could see the pendulum swing in United’s favour with a win and closing the gap to five points or with a City win, extending the lead to 11 and putting clear breathing space between them and there closest challengers.
Mourinho will be looking to one of his squad to step up to the plate and blaze a trail of glory on Sunday…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
