Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: 'Finishing second is all that matters'

Pogba will be expected to play in midfield for United on Saturday, having returned to Mourinho's starting XI for the 2-0 win over Swansea City. It was the first time he had played an away knockout tie in the Champions League.

"Finally, the people discover my secrets - I am a bad guy, I'm a coward", Guardiola said Friday with heavy sarcasm. "We will even make a short training session on Saturday morning and make a decision about the line-up".

United, serial winners of the Premier League under former manager Alex Ferguson, will be desperate to throw a spanner in City's works and reclaim a modicum of pride.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba seems to have suggested he did not know his agent Mino Raiola had offered his services to rivals Manchester City in the January transfer window.

Although candidates technically do not have party affiliation, the state party can work on the candidate's behalf. Randy Bryce called the victory 'a rallying cry for working folks.' Walker also used the results to raise money.

"These are the games you play the whole season for".

"You can try to do what Liverpool did and press hard and early - but no one has managed to do that against them at home. On the left we have Fabian Delph, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Danilo so in this season we cannot do that, but maybe when Mendy comes back then sometimes we will do that because with Vincent Kompany, Nico (Otamendi), Aymeric Laporte and John (Stones) we have exceptional central defenders, so maybe we can use it".

City know victory over their rivals would be enough to give them a third crown since 2012.

Guardiola's ire was aimed exclusively at Raiola, with whom he has had a long-running feud dating back to his Barcelona days.

Still, City will put out a strong team, with a probable front three of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva, for example, with Sergio Aguero still an injury doubt. His team still has more chances to clinch the league, but only 90 minutes to salvage its Champions League dream.

Now on 84 points, the leaders are chasing Chelsea's Premier League record tally of 95 points set in 2004-05.

"Even if there was more at stake, after having been frustrated by Mourinho's approach, demeanour, behaviour, lies, nonsense and awful man management, I actually think that in this instance he is probably right to play a very defensive space limiting style against City".

And the Manchester City boss revealed the price of Pogba would have been too much for the Premier League leaders. "We have been second for many, many months, it is our objective to fight for that and for that we need points".
