Manchester United love to prove people wrong, claims French star

Manchester United love to prove people wrong, claims French star

Aymeric Laporte has admitted revenge is motivating Manchester City ahead of their first derby against Manchester United since April's dramatic defeat.

Next up for United is Sunday's derby at Manchester City, where a good result for the visitor would truly silence Mourinho's numerous critics this season. "I want the feeling, it doesn't matter where we go, we go to compete and this is the feeling the Manchester United supporters around the world want".

"When they come to play us here or anywhere, they probably have higher respect for us than before".

United roared back from two goals down to beat Pep Guardiola's City in this fixture last season to delay their neighbour's coronation as Premier League champions, but Herrera said recent history counted for nothing.

While it'd be a disservice to Manchester United's first-half performance to call their 2-1 victory over Juventus a "smash and grab", it was unexpected.

The 25-year-old, who impressed for Shakhtar Donetsk last season, completed a £52 million move to Old Trafford in the last transfer window, leaving many City fans disappointed.

"We are going to try, I can not say we are going to be successful in our motivations, in our desire, but we played two hard matches away against two very good teams in Chelsea and Juventus and we managed to get good results and even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there. That was one of those games that goes down in history".

"I can't make a direct comparison because I have never played for Barca or Real, so haven't played in a Clasico", Silva said.

"It's special because it is a Manchester derby and it means what it means".

"But there are lots of important games".

The Red Devils came from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 win over Juventus after Juan Mata's free-kick and Alex Sandro's own goal to cancel out Cristiano Ronaldo's opener.

"They create two chances, set-pieces, they know the English teams, they are always looking for the set-pieces but we will learn from our mistakes and we are still top of the group".
