Man Utd stars 'insulted and goaded' City players after 3-2 comeback

Benjamin Mendy

France international Mendy injured his knee in a tackle on Andros Townsend in September

The Frenchman has scored 9 goals and has 5 assists in 26 appearances this season.

Jose Mourinho's workforce had clearly not forgotten Metropolis players mocking them by singing the "park the bus" chant after their derby win at Earlier Trafford once more in December.

"If I was you, I would go why Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match, you always go to the one [who doesn't play]".

That could see Juan Mata recalled while Marcus Rashford may get the nod ahead of Anthony Martial amid rumours both players are becoming unsettled due to a lack of regular starts. And a dry answer is only 11 can start the match and we are 22.

"For me they were and they are that great".

US launches strikes on Syria
However, Syrian air defense systems intercepted the majority of the attempted strikes, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. The US launched airstrikes on Syria over Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons in Damascus.

It's claimed the United players had discovered that City's players had already booked tables at restaurants that evening to celebrate their title success, to which one United player is alleged to have said: "Booked tables have you?"

Perhaps it was a outcome of not actually being from the city (just a few miles away from being a textbook "Surrey Red"), but I'd never taken up the traditional hatred of City.

Of course, as United grew stronger, winning their first title for 26 years in 1993, their fierce rivals Manchester City grew weaker, with league placings of 9th, 16th and 17th in the years from 1993 onwards before they finally tumbled out of the top flight in 1996, with United having racked up four Premier League titles during this spell.

"I was working really hard and because I tried to build motivational training sessions with new exercises and things to motivate them, little tactical things I know for some players is motivation".

Mourinho told MUTV defenders Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind are all available to return to the squad from their respective injuries for the visit of the Baggies.
