Sunday's derby game will present the likes of Ander Herrera, Delay Blind and young Scott McTominay the chance to prove their worth if selected by the manager, which can also influence the game positively for United, as we saw with Rashford.

Mourinho's side are now eight points behind Pep Guardiola's imperious league leaders ahead of Sunday's crucial derby at Old Trafford.

"If Manchester United wins this derby game against Manchester City, they've a good chance to win the title", the former Russia winger told Omnisport, speaking at the signing of his book Russian Winters: The Story of Andrei Kanchelskis (deCoubertin).

The two sides met in the International Champions Cup (ICC) in Houston last summer, a year after another attempt to play each other overseas was abandoned because of torrential rain in Beijing.

While City have had to grind out wins, needing late goals to see off Feyenoord, Huddersfield Town, Southampton and West Ham United, Mourinho's counter-attacking United team have hit form.

Manchester City is no longer just the "noisy" neighbour. A win for City would mean they go 11 points clear at the top of the table.

"But if they lose on Sunday it is finished".

It is hard to turn away from the feeling that, for both these clubs, this match represents something of a pivotal point in the season, if not in the wider scale of things, too.

They score for fun and have trampled on all-comers so far but I still have doubts in my mind about how this team defends and I think this Manchester United team has the firepower to trouble them.

"If you won a derby, all season the fans would say 'well done guys you beat City'".

Kanchelskis - who played for both clubs during his playing career - feels Jose Mourinho's side simply can not afford to lose further ground in their bid to be crowned champions for the first time since 2013.

"I'm looking forward to this derby because it will be interesting because it is a different Man City now and a different Man United".

A grim 0-0 draw left both teams locked in a battle for fourth place as Antonio Conte's Chelsea streaked towards glory.

Defence was a big problem for Mourinho in his first season at Old Trafford but he is on top of that now and United have the best record at the back of any team in the Premier League, one less conceded than their rivals. "It is going to be very, very interesting".
