Mourinho to ' pack bus' against City

Mourinho to ' pack bus' against City

07 Dec 2017, 16:00

Matt Le Tissier has revealed that Jose Mourinho will be happy to sit back and defend against rivals Manchester City in Sunday's crunch derby.

The first instalment of the Manchester derby arrives this weekend, with United eight points behind their neighbours and the closest contenders to Pep Guardiola's Premier League leaders.

 United will be desperate to avoid defeat in order to give themselves a fighting chance of winning the title and Le Tissier believes Mourinho would be foolish to try to match City attack for attack, despite the contest being played at Old Trafford.

-I think the way City are at the moment he'd be foolish to try to play against them as 'you have an attack and we have an attack,'" Le Tissier said.

  Paul Pogba will miss Sunday's Manchester derby after Manchester United decided not to appeal his three-game ban for his red card at Arsenal.
