Jose Mourinho insists his motivation for the Manchester derby is not to deny their rivals the Premier League title, but to help Manchester United finish second.

Victory for Pep Guardiola's side would seal the Spaniard's first Premier League title after a season of dominance over their rivals.

Manchester City has collected compliments and plaudits nearly on a weekly basis this season and rightly so, though the premature if inevitable claims about Pep Guardiola's team being the best English side of all-time took a severe dent when Liverpool thrashed - not too strong a word - the visitors 3-0 at Anfield on Wednesday. "We have training on Friday afternoon and will see how his physical condition is". The City boss must decide whether to go full strength against United and risk tiredness or injury for the second leg. The game at Anfield was so tough. It is the first time he plays in Anfield, in his first knockout (phase) in the Champions League. He is the boss, you can be good with each other but still there's a distance between a coach and a player. He was interested in Mkhitaryan and Pogba playing with us? Could there be any better feeling if you're from the blue half of Manchester. I never speak with him, so his opinion [about me], I don't know - maybe Ibra [Ibrahimovic] explained many things about me.

Only twice before have teams recorded longer winning home runs in the Premier League - City themselves registered 20 victories in a row between March 2011 and March 2012 while Manchester United claimed 19 straight wins from October 2010 to October 2011. We are close to being champions. "We have just a few days between each game".

"It was a tough result and makes it hard for us next Tuesday", he said.

Jose Mourinho defends his Man United side in second place: "We deserved to finish second in spite of what you can say, the criticism you make". I think United will turn up and play for a 0-0, but I just don't see City not breaking them down before 90 minutes is up.

It will also be impossible for The Citizens not to have one eye on the game next week against Liverpool which in reality is a far bigger game than this and they have a mountain to climb. We were good friends and we showed that last season, that we could perfectly show the football world that our relationship is positive.

"Liverpool are nearly qualified for the semi-finals but we have 90 minutes".

'The opponents want to beat you, you're a little bit more relaxed, the big achievement is already done so your intensity is sometimes [lower]. United certainly have the quality to go at City, but have won only one of their last 10 away games against top six sides.
