I'd stop playing if Man City were unbeatable - Pogba

Aliou Traore

TWITTER Aliou Traore made his debut for Man Utd's U18 side last weekend

The remaining place goes to the only locally born player to have scored a trophy-winning goal for either Manchester club in years; Jesse Lingard's certainly the man for the big occasion, and his movement could help create space for his team-mates to create big problems.

Soon after the game Pogba refused to answer any questions on his red card, which came from a studs up challenge on Spanish wingback Hector Bellerin.

And against a side like City who would be looking to punish United for the slightest of gaffes in midfield, United can go into the clash assured of a better defensive covering in midfield with the likes of Herrera and Blind.

Souness' agenda against Pogba is well known amongst United fans after he described the 24-year-old as "a bit of a YouTuber" in September.

"It will be a tough game for both teams". They were beaten 2-1 by Shakhtar Donetsk in an inconsequential Champions League group match in Ukraine on Wednesday.

The Premier League leaders had already won their group, but the Brazilian believes the result could prove to be positive, as the players prepare for arguably the biggest game of the domestic season so far.

'Derbies are always special.

"So if you have to choose a moment to lose then this would be the right one".

Sounness has said that Pogba lacks a "basic understanding" of playing in midfield. Kill the game when you have one chance because they are City and they have quality as well in front and they can kill the game at any time. It will be a little step for us if we win this game, but nothing will be finished.

"Paul, you can see that there was and - now I can speak because he's back - but you can clearly see Manchester United this season before Paul injury and after Paul injury".

"Can City stop United?"

"It's a derby, we have confidence, we feel really strong and we want to win". Let us know in the comments section below.
