Romelu Lukaku returns to Manchester United training ahead of derby

Juan Mata and Ashley Young helped Manchester United to an important win in Turin

Jose Mourinho described Manchester City's quality as "untouchable" in the build-up to the Sunday's derby, with his United side nine points behind the defending Premier League champions.

"We are always ready to compete and need to take advantage of the good momentum of the team at the moment". If you want to speak about their football potential, we can speak.

"He talks to me, tries to help me, he gives me - how do you say it in English... to improve my game and stuff like that".

In contrast, United are languishing down in an unfamiliar seventh place, already nine points behind their city rivals after losing three of their opening 11 league matches. I don't want to think about it'.

"It's hard enough as an isolated event, to put it in the context of where we are then it becomes even more hard". I even like his reaction at the end of the game against Newcastle, which the FA have appealed against.

Der Spiegel showed how the team's holding company _ state-backed Abu Dhabi United Group _ sent cash to a shell vehicle which was created to supposedly buy the right to use players' images in marketing campaigns.

Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has said his team's first defeat of the season, came at the best possible time.

Their last visit to the Ethiad unfolded in similar fashion: Pep Guardiola's team were 2-0 up and 45 minutes away from winning the Premier League title, only for Man United to produce an inspired second half performance - spearheaded by Paul Pogba - which saw them win 3-2.

And Mourinho said United are not focusing on the yawning gap between the two clubs in the build-up to Sunday's game.

"I think [it] is clear the team is growing up, but we have to grow up also in our compactness and start matches well".

"Lukaku is training with the team this morning (Friday)".

Romelu Lukaku missed the trip to Turin after picking up a hamstring complaint on the eve of the 2-1 win at Bournemouth, but the striker could make a welcome return at City.

"I am not living outside so I know it's important".
