Sky Sports pundit, Matt Le Tissier, has claimed that Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, will sit back and defend rivals Manchester City in Sunday’s Derby.
United go into the game in second place eight points behind their neighbours.
Mourinho’s men will be keen to avoid defeat, as it will further widen the gap between them and the high-flying City side.
Le Tissier believes Mourinho would be foolish to try to match City attack for attack, despite the contest being played at Old Trafford.
“I think the way City are at the moment he’d be foolish to try play against them as ‘you have an attack and we have an attack,'” Le Tissier said on Sky Sports Premier League Daily.
“They have got the better attack, they’ve got the best attack in the Premier League by a mile in my opinion. I think there has to be a game plan involved [on Sunday] and if that means sitting deeper at home I don’t think Jose will have a problem with doing that.”
