Andy Cole and Trevor Sinclair mull over the Manchester derby

Manchester United's Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic celebrates with French midfielder Paul Pogba after scoring their second goal from the penalty spot during their English Premier League match against Southampton at Old Trafford

Kelechi Iheanacho and Marcus Rashford will come face to face in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Manchester City striker Aguero will be serving the first of a three-game ban during Saturday's derby at Old Trafford.

"We know they have so many options so to try to do that job for the players is more hard".

The Belgium worldwide said that while he featured heavily under Mourinho's predecessor Louis van Gaal, he appreciates the Portuguese boss playing him in a defensive midfield role. I always try to learn from all my colleagues and opponents and I learn from him as well.

Never before in the 135-year history of the game has the intrigue and anticipation focused so much on the rivalry between the managers and their personal missions.

"Jose was my coach, when he was assistant to Bobby Robson", Guardiola said at a press conference when asked if he would go for a drink with Mourinho.

Ibrahimovic, who famously did not see eye to eye with Guardiola at Barcelona, has rapidly become the United talisman and Mourinho was full of praise for the 34-year-old.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's feud with Pep Guardiola simmered on Friday as the Manchester United striker aimed another volley at his former manager.

"He has had a big impact in what he did everywhere and he is an wonderful talent, especially on the pitch".

"I have a lot of respect for him".

"We know how we are going to play tomorrow - and we know we're going to play a real good team". Some players need time to understand the league but the big players don't.

"That's more power and we should use this", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. The new signings and a new manager have given us a leap in quality. "If we play the way we have been doing in the last few weeks we will have a chance to do that".

New signings Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan could make their debuts after recovering from injury, and Claudio Bravo could replace Willy Caballero in goal after his transfer from Barcelona. He is fit, he is ready.

The 22-year-old Cote D'Ivoire worldwide was the club's first signing of the transfer window, with the defender costing around $40 million from Spanish side Villareal in June. It is no problem. At this moment he doesn't play. "We want to make sure that when he comes back he is 100 per cent fit".

That huge loss to Guardiola aside, Mourinho isn't known for tactical clangers.
