EPL: Mourinho reveals plan for Manchester Derby


Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has hinted that he would attack Manchester City in Saturday’s Derby at The Etihad.

United are 16 points behind City and a win for Pep Guardiola’s men would see them confirmed as Premier League champions.

There have been speculations that Mourinho would park the bus, rather than go toe-to-toe with their rivals and risk handing them the title.

But the Portuguese, addressing the media on Friday, said he would “try and win points that can help us finish second”.

“Obviously it’s our objective to fight in the league and for that we need points, so my objective for tomorrow is to try and win points that can help us finish second.

“Normally the number of points we have would put us in the fight for the title. But we are not because Man City have a very good number of points that makes it difficult for the second-placed team,” he said.
