As soon as Champions League progress was sealed by dismissing Pep Guardiola’s suggestion, David Silva could miss City’s trip to United Jose Mourinho began the Manchester derby mind games.
Manchester United tops Group A after their club record-equalling 40th unbeaten home match in a row. Guardiola said Silva is a doubt for the clash after leaving the playmaker at home for their Champions League tie, but Mourinho is not buying it.
Man Utd boss said: “Do you want the truth or what do you want? You want the truth,” the United boss said, laughing. The truth is Eric Bailly, no chance for the weekend. Phil Jones a chance.
“(Marouane) Fellaini a chance, Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) a big chance and (Nemanja) Matic is injured but will play for sure. I’m telling the truth. He’s injured but he will play for sure. (Michael) Carrick no chance. It’s the truth, eh? No stories of (Alexandre) Lacazette, David Silva. All the truth.”
