Manchester United and Manchester City's French players are set to party in Paris on Sunday night, irrespective of the result of the Manchester derby, sources have told ESPN FC.

"All the derbies are special, I think in Spain there's more noise [in the media] than here, before the game especially, but it's always special for everybody".

"So yes, I think that we can do it this year".

Mourinho's men cross Manchester already lagging behind their rivals, who won the Premier League title by a whopping 19 points last term, smashing a range of records in the process.

"The first game [at Old Trafford] was awesome for me, and the second for him".

"We have to control the ball more and be clinical, that's the game we'll try to do".

There's no real partnership formed, it seems to be Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof the most likely to play Sunday, but that's the big thing for United - whether they win or lose this game is on the centre-backs.

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said his team's first defeat of the season, came at the best possible time.

"We're still very close and who knows, maybe in the future we can play together again on the same team".

"We are not a team that gives up", said Mourinho. "I don't think it is the way to look at the match".

City has also not responded to questions from The Associated Press about Guardiola's contract, specifically whether he receives income from entities in Abu Dhabi or other teams owned by Sheikh Mansour.

Still, as a football team it is one Mourinho believes they can beat - particularly after their performance at title contenders Chelsea and the midweek victory away to Juventus.

"But if we keep conceding goals before the opposition there will be a day where we can not come back so we have to grow up in our approach, because is clear the team is growing up, but we have to grow up in our compactness and start matches well". "I didn't offend anyone at the end, I just made a gesture that I wanted to hear them louder". Lukaku trained with the main group on Friday but the United boss will wait to see if he comes through training on Saturday unscathed.

"If the answer is positive, he's ready but in this moment I can only say he trains with the team, I don't know his answer".
