Gary Neville Podcast: Man City 0-0 Man Utd

Nicolas Otamendi’s header goes over the bar

Rooney has made 31 appearances for United this season, most of which as a substitute, with manager Jose Mourinho relying more on top goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic before a knee injury ended the 35-year-old's season.

Manchester City have only lost one of their 18 Premier League home games since the derby defeat at the Etihad Stadium in March previous year.

City host rivals Manchester United on Thursday in a match that could have a huge bearing on both sides' Champions League ambitions.

"I think maybe opponents they look at us with different eyes because we don't have Zlatan and Paul and Marcos and Mata and Jones and Smalling". "They know that they are important and that they can be important".

Sergio Aguero, the club's top scorer with 17 league goals this season, has a good chance to feature after picking up a knock against Arsenal in the FA Cup on the weekend, while teenage sensation Gabriel Jesus could make a return having been sidelined for two months with a broken bone in his foot.

"I think we'll be able to qualify for the Champions League but if we are not able to we are going to adapt and play the Europa League", he told reporters.

"It was not good enough in terms of what I'd expect", he said. "It's happened a lot this season - good games but just not the result".

49ers' Lynch on first-ever draft: 'You can't play scared'
I know Shanahan's feelings on Cousins are so strong, he tried to deliver to the quarterback to Cleveland while he was there. While a team can get something close to value-for-value at No. 3, they typically pay a huge premium at No. 2.

Webber feels Manchester United hold all the cards at the moment when it comes to offering him a new deal and he doesn't believe that the club would want to keep Ibrahimovic on his current high wages.

"When we see each other, (it's) 'Hi, hi'". "It's going to be the game of the season", said United's Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera.

United did beat City 1-0 in the EFL Cup fourth round last October - with Mourinho's side going on to lift the trophy earlier this year - but in almost 17 years of management, he has never lost both ties in the league to the same team.

Jose Mourinho is chomping at the bits with the opportunity to get one over Pep Guardiola. De Gea has 13 league clean sheets this season, which is tied for the league lead with Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois and Tottenham's Hugo Lloris. I know there wasn't too long left but when six minutes go up it's an terrible long time to see out.

"We got a point - it's not so bad but we never felt like the game was hard or they were a threat", Kompany said.

But, if they manage to win the second tier of European football but fall short in their quest to reach the top four, they WILL play in the 2017-18 Champions League.
