Yaya Toure sees Manchester power balance tilting firmly in favour of City

Yaya Toure sees Manchester power balance tilting firmly in favour of City

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho joked that the club's injury blight may force him to pick himself for Sunday's home game with Swansea City.

Reigning champions Leicester City have stumbled lately under Craig Shakespeare but a win at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday would all but guarantee their Premier League future following a 1-0 loss to Arsenal in midweek. I have to speak with them and see how they are and how they feel.

"I think they missed happiness, they missed trust, they missed belief, they missed this extra bit that brings resilience, brings you fight, and [now] they have it". "When the new players, when they arrive they will find a group more ready to go for big things".

"That is arguably a clean sheet today and we go into the next game against Everton fully believing that we can stay in this league for next season", said Clement.

Jose Mourinho is without Mata, Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Jones, Smalling who are all injured, while Fellaini got sent off against Manchester City.

Mourinho saw his options further reduced during the 0-0 draw with Manchester City on Thursday, after Marouane Fellaini was red-carded and Timothy Fosu-Mensah suffered an arm injury.

Manchester City tried everything they could, but failed to beat Manchester United and Thursday's Derby ended in a quite frustrating 0-0 draw.

He said he "wished the season wasn't coming to an end, I wish it was the start, because I want to play games".

Luckily for Mourinho, the English Football Association has decided against extending Fellaini's ban to four matches even though the Belgian midfielder refused to leave the field of play immediately.

Manchester United will be looking to continue building on their positive recent form when they welcome Swansea City to Old Trafford on Sunday. The matches they have to play, I see them doing that.

The Belgium global is set for a three-match suspension, while Mourinho confirmed Paul Pogba would not return from a hamstring injury until next week's Europa League semi-final first leg at Celta Vigo.

Paul Clement, the Swansea coach, sympathised with Mourinho's injury problems but stressed the Welsh club would be the underdogs at Old Trafford. "He says that Sergio Aguero was intelligent, the way he reacted, but the only thing I know is that we had to play nearly 15 minutes with a exhausted team".

Marouane Fellaini is also unavailable as he's facing a three-game suspension following his dismissal against City so Mourinho has admitted that Wayne Rooney could be deployed in a deeper midfield role. "But we know it will not be easy".
