But that includes the last one when United came from 2-0 down to stun the Etihad in a 3-2 victory that robbed City of the extra satisfaction of sealing the title against their rivals.

Juventus striker Paulo Dybala has detailed his post-match confrontation with Jose Mourinho after their Champions League defeat to Manchester United.

"I told him there was no need, I didn't insult him".

"I focus on football".

"Obviously, we want to win every game but we had a quite hard start at the beginning of the season". If you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and football potential starts with investment, and after that of course there is a quality of the work, of the organisation - I think that is untouchable.

"I would like to know the ideas", said Guardiola, who is in his third season coaching City.

"So yes, I think that we can do it this year".

Lukaku has been struggling for form in recent weeks and he has not scored for Manchester United since their 2-1 win over Watford back on 15 September. We have lost two finals in the past four years and last year we played a great game against Real and were unlucky to lose.

Pogba and Mendy have known each other since they were together as youngsters at Le Havre's youth academy and have maintained that friendship in Manchester.

The United manager said that after three consecutive wins, including an impressive victory over Juventus in midweek, Pep Guardiola knows he is in for a "difficult match".
