Manchester United-trainer José Mourinho don’t see it as an advantage that Manchester City is the Saturday in the derby at Old Trafford without star player Sergio Agüero.

The Argentine was recently for three matches suspended for his elbow late last month in the match against West Ham United.

“That makes it harder for us. If Agüero is playing, we know exactly the formation of the City. Now he is not available and they have great other options, ‘ explained Mourinho on Friday at the press conference.

“Kelechi Iheanacho, Raheem Sterling and David Silva would all be as fake striker can play. They have plenty of opportunities. We need to make sure that we are as good as possible with the unpredictability of dealing with it.”

Mourinho has admiration for the opponent, and coach Josep Guardiola. “The City has a good team with a very good trainer. They are titelkandidaat and we respect it. Self me feel good. In the early stage of the season is every duel just as important.”

After the first three speelrondes in the Premier League, both United as City are still without loss of points. The goal difference of the ‘Citizens’ (9-3) is slightly better than that of the team of sir alex ferguson (6-1).


Trainer Guardiola at City let know full of for the profit to go against United. “I want attacking football and the match check. I believe until the last day of my career, you have to play in order to win a race.”

The former coach of FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich is to be wary of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who, like Agüero a good start to the season had three goals in three matches.

“I have a lot of respect for what he has achieved in his career. What he everywhere has achieved is great. Some players need time to find a new league to get used to, but the real talents will not.”

The match between United and City at Old Trafford begins Saturday afternoon at 13.30 hours.
