Manchester United and Manchester City's French players to party together after derby

2:31                                            The Debate United’s late win at Juventus 'a huge boost' ahead of the derby

Jose Mourinho is sweating on the fitness of Paul Pogba ahead of the Manchester derby after the Frenchman was forced to miss training on Friday, sources have told ESPN FC.

Paulo Dybala has denied reports that he insulted Jose Mourinho at the end of Juventus' Champions League match against Manchester United on Wednesday.

Earlier on Friday Mourinho vowed to go toe-to-toe in Sunday's derby with a Manchester City side that he claims are "untouchable" in terms of the quality of their football and the squad they have built.

"Lukaku is training with the team this morning if this answer is positive and we have of course one more session tomorrow".

And Mourinho said United are not focusing on the yawning gap between the two clubs in the build-up to Sunday's game.

David Silva is usually the man but this time I think it's time for Raheem Sterling to step up in a huge game.

"We have to just think about the match, is hard enough as an isolated event, if you want to put that match into the context of where we are and where we can be".

"If you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and the football potential starts with investment".

"Of course we are on a good run, United as well, it will be like all the games so tight, no team controls the game for 90 minutes and we have to defend well and attack like we have in the last games".

Mourinho's side came from two goals down to beat Manchester City last season at the Etihad.

The Portuguese previously indicated United - seventh in the table going into the weekend - can not consider themselves in the title race until they climb into the top four.

"It's a very good team, especially at home", the ever-improving Swedish centre-back said.

"We are a team that has that collective spirit to fight back but it is not always possible".

The champions are in ominous form leading into the encounter, having won six straight in all competitions and scored 12 goals in their past two outings.
