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

Ronaldo faced United for the fourth time in the Champions League since departing Old Trafford and was on hand to open the scoring for Juventus in the 65th minute.

The Belgian, who has scored four goals for United this season, missed Wednesday's 2-1 win at Juventus in the Champions League as well as last weekend's 2-1 Premier League victory over Bournemouth.

But since they took charge at United and City the relationship between Mourinho and Guardiola appears more cordial, with the Catalan happy to avoid the rows of the past.

The big question mark ahead of Sunday's match surrounds the fitness of Romelu Lukaku, who Mourinho says will be in contention to feature if he comes through training unscathed on Friday and Saturday.

Juan Mata scored an excellent free-kick in the 86th minute and Alex Sandro scored an own goal three minutes later. A few weeks ago at Stamford Bridge [against Chelsea], one of the toughest places, they nearly won.


Speaking about Sunday afternoon's fixture, Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has said that the Red Devils will be ready for what the Blues throw at them.

"It was great to see to see Paul again because we're good friends", he said.

"It's two completely different teams but the win [at Juventus] gave us a lot of confidence which is always good". I think that is untouchable but what is behind [the scenes] I can not say. You have to defend deep and well, defend crosses well because they are so strong and better than us at set-pieces.

"They have incredible talent up front and in the middle as well". For sure it is an important game, like any other one, because we are playing for three points and we want to win every time we play in the Premier League or any other competition.

"Bring our game and control as much as possible, be clinical - that's the game we will try to do".
