Manchester United star a sudden doubt for Manchester derby after missing training

2:31                                            The Debate United’s late win at Juventus 'a huge boost' ahead of the derby

But City's preparations for Sunday's derby at the Etihad Stadium have been disrupted by a series of allegations of financial impropriety, which Mourinho addressed at his pre-match news conference.

Mourinho's men cross Manchester already lagging behind their rivals, who won the Premier League title by a whopping 19 points last term, smashing a range of records in the process.

Jose Mourinho hailed a "fantastic victory" after Manchester United stole the thunder of Cristiano Ronaldo and a dominant Juventus with a 2-1 win in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"You have to be focused and ready for everything so I'm looking forward to the game".

"I focus on football".

"And football potential starts with investment". "I don't think that's the way to look at the match".

"I prefer the sex - by far", he said.

"In this moment I have only to think about football, and to think about football is to think about Manchester City as a football team". UEFA this week has not said how aware it was of City's schemes, reported by German magazine Der Spiegel, to hide expenses and evade monitoring of spending on players.

City have described the reports as the product of an organised attempt to damage the club's reputation, based on "materials hacked or stolen".

Mourinho has praised United's ability to fight back from losing positions, but suggested he would like to see them score the first goal more often.

"We have a chance that Lukaku could be back", said the United boss.

City has also not responded to questions from The Associated Press about Guardiola's contract, specifically whether he receives income from entities in Abu Dhabi or other teams owned by Sheikh Mansour.

"Like all the games are so tight, last minutes no team controlled the game and you have to defend well and try to attack like we've done in the last few games". "I don't think it's the way to look at the match". It is hard enough being an isolated event. "It's true that at times you feel insulted, and that's wrong, but even then you shouldn't create even more tension".

To date, Sanchez has scored just four times in 28 appearances for the Red Devils, something which has left Jose Mourinho baffled as he searches for answers for the player's drop in form.
